DBCooper, it’s funny that you mention “deck” because I hear the expression, “on deck,” used in almost the same way. It works 10x better though. I highly recommend it.[/quote]

I’m convinced I popularized the practice of mocking the Braves with their own tomahawk chop chant during the 2002 playoffs against the Giants. I started doing it in the 1st inning of a blowout and by the end of the inning the whole section was with me, and an inning later, the whole crowd.

On deck sounds better, but apparently it’s a hipster term, so it’s no longer a viable option for me. Neither is any sort of variation on it, such as below deck, above deck, wet deck etc.

Oh god i hate hipsters

“gingerballs”

Google now has one result for novembulk in quotes.

Been using this one for a couple years, win. I like that its not wide spread because you can talk about people in front of them. We have a few words like this so we can talk freely no matter where it is we are at.

Although I didn’t make the words themselves up, I started trying to create a few new slang terms that maybe you guys might like to use when you want to appear really cool and cutting edge in front of your friends.

If something is really cool, it’s “deck”. As in: that shirt is really deck! or Man, that ass is lookin’ deck!

If something is really cool, it can also be “glad”. As in: that movie was pretty glad! or It would be glad if the Giants won the Series.

If something is not cool, it is “fin”. As in: if Hallowed doesn’t post some pics up in T-Vixen it would be fin. or That old car is looking pretty fin.

Know these terms, love them, use them. [/quote]

My BFF and I have been using Fin for years.
It is the declaration of the full, permanent, and unquestioned death of a relationship.
Started using this in high school.
Most recent context her divorce.

Me: So its over?
Her: “Fin”

[/quote]

But the context in which you use the word “fin” would suggest that it is shortened from its etymological origin, “finished”. My introduction of the slang term “fin” into the American lexicon is meant to be as a complete word all to itself. Fin in the way I use it is not short for anything. Maybe this could cause some confusion and I should start to think about a different term.[/quote]

Or that she is speaking spanish.[/quote]

It came from some foreign film we saw in junior high. Instead of “the end” the one word “Fin” appeared on the screen. [/quote]

Knew it.

I bet it was French.

That means a chain smoking, beret wearing, 90% dialogue having existentialist nightmare where the protagonists change roles every 30 seconds just foir shits and giggles.

All in black and white of course.

Wow, you have a legacy of half assing the creation of a whole new word, and google has 1 hit.

Well I don’t really remember the details of the movie it was about twenty years ago but based on the art house movie theater that we saw it in I’m sure you’re right.
