The Top Ten

1 Selfie!

Imagine how awkward that would be. - keycha1n

Imagine going up to somebody with a polaroid and saying,"SELFIE WE LOOK so HAWT"... I just laugh at the thought. - The_Violist

2 bae

It means "baby", but it's also apparently the Danish word for "poop". I really need to tell people at my school this. - Minecraftcrazy530

You know you're out of it when you have to Google "what is bae? "

I have no shame - keycha1n

I had to do a Google search for the detention of this word. People don't make sense these days. - RockFashionista

Wha? That's Danish for poop

4 Ratchet

My point exactly. I agree with PositronWildhawk. If anyone decides to say the slang version of ratchet, I will hit them with one with absolutely no regrets. - username34

The real definition for ratchet is a mechanical device. People take sophisticated words and transform them into slang terms.

To me, a ratchet is a mechanical device with a gear and a pawl. - PositronWildhawk

5 YOLO

You know, I take YOLO as a sign that since you only live once, make the most of it instead of flinging yourselves into something potentially deadly. - username34

Exactly! I hate it when people say something like "You only live once- so let's go paddle board in the jet ski area! We only get one chance to live, so do it while you have the chance! " Um... if I only get one chance to live, I don't want to have it last not even into adulthood because I tried something idiotic like paddle boarding in a jet ski ring. - pandagirl

Why do people like to say stupid words like this nowadays? - ThePwoperMuser101

I dare you to say that to Hindus and Buddhists who believe in reincarnation!

6 Twerk

Growing increasingly ashamed of modern slang as this list goes on... - keycha1n

7 OTP/I ship it

LOL that's all my classmates ever say. When we study two important political partners, "I ship it". Studying Shakespeare, ", Viola and Olivia is my new OTP! ", people even ship elements of the periodic table in my class... maybe its gone too far.

8 On Fleek

Well, to be honest. I had to search up "modern slang" to make this list. So I don't really know either... - keycha1n

What is this!?!? Seriously! I don't even know over half of the things on this list! - Jeff_The_Killer

It means on point Positron. (And yes, I had to search its definition. )

Fleek means it looks good. I just say it looks good. or great.
