I've heard the word Hardbody, its a New York word that refers to anything thats extreme or tough. For example "Yo son, you saw my jacket? shits madddd ill, hardbody". We use tight to describe how we're upset. "I'm so tight she gave me a D"

That's really far removed from the original Patrick Bateman-style yuppie usage.

Also, I heard the term "chew" used to answer the phone the other day. I think this comes from "chew the fat" but I might be wrong.

what's the Patrick Bateman style definition of hardbody?

I've always known 'hardbody' to mean the same thing that the other guy mentioned....

during my travels this past summer i found out some of this Australian slang:

a SLAB of beer: the same thing as a case in america

"skull it": the same thing as "chug it" in america

and from my experience living in England (spelling is questionable):

knackered: to be tired

bloody hell: fucking hell

bollocks: i think this is either balls or ass!

wanker: fucker

*giving the peace sign backwards is the same thing as the middle finger in america

*sticking your tongue behind your lower lip and brushin your chin with a forward motion of the back of your hand is a similar insult

spastic: is like calling someone a retard

"hella" is definitely part of seattle slang, not just a california thing. when i first moved to the east coast, cats would give me dirty looks. now, since i've lived here for over 10 years, when i go back to seattle, cats give me looks for using the word "mad" and "word".

I say "mad" and "word" all the time, too! I transcend!

10 years ago, "mad" and "word" were NOT part of the westcoast vocabulary. shows how much culture has cross-polinated over the past few years...
