    Nope, can't use 'em. Now, when you attain membership in the pentegenarian club you can resume their use. I mean just yesterday I was all like "Siiiiiiick, I'm so stoked after hitting that sweet jump!"

    Sick = having an illness

    Stoked = What just happened to a fire

    Sweet.... Guilty. I have and probably will use this one again.
    It's such a fine line between idiocy and genius.

    Nope.
    Authorities speculate that speed may have been a factor. They are also holding gravity and inertia for questioning.

    as a 40 year old my choice of language on the bike is these (I come from the not-politically correct decades):

    1) Holy ****
    2) ****ing A
    3) Awesome

    I can be a chore to be around if you don't like hanging with sailors or one eyed carpenters.

    You are never too old. What is that joke?

    2 bulls are standing on a hill overlooking a herd of cows, the younger bull says "hey lets run down there and **** one of those cows!" the older bull says "No lets walk down there and **** all of those cows."

    Same lines, different pace.

    I have the same problem as an electrician. If it weren't for the F-word some jobs couldn't get done at work.

    Oh man if it wasn't for that word my wheels would still be rims wrapped in plastic and a box of spokes and some random hubs. My bathroom would be a 1950's abomination. My kitchen would be laminate countertops and linoleum floor. Pretty much nothing could ever get done. Explains why I get so little done when my kids are around. Gotta watch the mouth there.

    I sometimes used stoked, actually have a fairly extensive vocabulary of "dudespeak" which I have a hard time not using when I have to be like all professional and stuff.

    Don't use them.
    Cussing, when it fit's, which is usually at work.
    And if my oldest daughter refers to me as "Dude" one
    more time, the gloves are off.
