About Memes and Trends


noun: meme; plural noun: memes
an element of a culture or system of behavior that may be considered to be passed from one individual to another by nongenetic means, esp. imitation.

trending now: "Yes, that"

Yeah, ok, slight overdramatization.
When I see "yes, that" I do let out a slightly audible groan, however.

Oh well, back when I used to say "bitchin" (way back, was it the 80's?) or tubular (well actually, I have to confess that I  never got up the nerve to actually say that one) I'm sure I caused some groans and facepalms as well. That just wasn't "cool"....

....That just wasn't "cool"....yes, that.


Please be as gracious as you would like others to be to you. Thank you :)

Please try to keep your comments on the topic of the post you are commenting on.

If there is a link to an article or podcast, or if there is an embedded video please view these before airing your views on the posting. If you clearly did not watch video/read link I may choose to remove your comment or leave your comment and then not respond to it ...particularly if you have a question that is already answered on link or video.

Opposing viewpoints are of course allowed here, however, I will limit such discussions to two or at most three further comments on one topic, so do try to get all your criticisms in while keeping that in mind, and don't take it personal....I just don't want to be bogged down with a constant barrage of replies that go on and on like a dog chasing it's tail in circles.
