The increase in popularity of the slang word 'rad' to express a positive reaction to something. I'm seeing and hearing it everywhere now Frown
That's a new one to me.  Have never heard it up here.  Sounds like the modern equivalent of the Scottish "barry", which was popular for several years recently and meant the same thing.  Drove me up the wall!

Oh we get the 'awesome' here too Bev, and sometimes the 'cool' but without the bananas!

Yeah, 'random' exploded in popularity in those days and I'm incredibly ashamed to have used it a few times.

I know I'm paranoid. But am I paranoid enough?

I'm actually convinced that I started the trend for 'random'. I woke up one day at uni in about 1984 and decided to start using the word to describe surreal occurrences. It spread like wildfire though uni and has persisted ever since.

Or you unknowingly heard it used by someone else and your subconscious got to work.

Two things Smile
1. I agree with Mark :p or you're actually the centre of societal trends which would terrify me.
2. That was 3 years before I was born-just to cheer you up Very Happy

What about the Glesca "pure dead" as in "pure dead brilliant" - meaning that something is "very, very good".  Love that one! Very Happy
