    Any of you know someone or have kids that use it too much? My niece who is 21 uses it alot when we have a conversation. Is it something new? I am 49 and have never used it or heard it before. So I am waatching Kick-Ass 2 this weekend and it is said twice once by Mindy McReedy and again by one of the "mean girls". I feel I would sound like a bufoon if I started using it in conversation. "The Lakers suck this season."
    "I know, right?"
  2. Just the fluidity of language, dude.

    My 11 year old says it a lot, I rib him about it a little, but I hardly see a problem.

    I found that phrase distasteful enough to start openly mocking those who use it.

    Did you see KA I? How did you compare the two films.

    I thought one was much better and I was jonesing for II by the time it came out.

    Language changes. It's my understanding that Shakespeare added hundreds of words to the English language.

    But wicked cool as it may be it all boils down the same difference.

    I seem to recall the local equivalent being "for sure".

    I studied chemistry at uni. The result of reading a WSJ article about chemists having very low levels of unemployment. I've tended to be pragmatic.

    What I wish to do, would be to study language. Linguistics. How people communicate, or fail at that endevour, is something I find interesting.

    Who can recall leaving a jam and saying "it was real"

    I feel like most people in my age bracket have been saying, "I know, right?" for years now. I wouldn't consider this a new thing.

    How about "Yeah, no."? I had a coworker who would start almost every freaking sentence this way. Drove me nuts. Which is it? Do you agree or disagree? Ambivalent? Or do you truly have absolutely NO IDEA what's coming out of your noise hole anymore? :meh:

    I will impose my sense of linguistic morality on those in need of reform. The number of the unclean must be dealt with.:atoz:

    "I can't. I just can't."

    Every girl in my company in sales says this phrase at least 27 times a day. It makes me cringe.
