    I do not like the following colloquial terms used by the young people of today.

    "I'm dead":

    You are NOT dead, if you were dead you would not be able to post or say that you are dead! Saying this may offend people who have lost loved ones...
    (My sister says it a lot, I remind her that her friend is dead and that she is very much alive)

    "It's not that deep." I do not understand why people say that.

    "Selfie"

    What's wrong with saying that you've taken a photo of yourself?
    "Bae"

    I do not understand why people say this...

    Which ones do you not like?

    "I'm dead" means you're laughing so hard you're about to die, it feels like. Don't you laugh? I however never say it unless online. I believe in social situations, use all the flair in the world

    All the other words you listed are demon spawns of poor use of social media. :talkhand:

    I don't even understand this one. I hear it all the time but never knew the origin of adding "cheeky."

    I know what it means The meaning it itself is silly too. If you were laughing so much you were going to die you would be in A&E.

    I do laugh like most humans My mother was shocked that I laugh.

    I do wonder if tickle torture has ever killed someone..

    Someone has died of laughter in history.

    When you're out with the lads and you're having a look in JD and you might fancy the Curry Club at 'Spoons but then your mate Callum who's an absolute ledge and the Archbishop of Banterbury says "Oi brevs let's have a cheeky Nandos instead" and you'll think "Top. Let's smash it."

    I would think it would stop you from breathing. I'm not too sure.

    This looks familiar. And I know the context in which the saying is used, while refraining myself from using it. But I still don't know how the cheeky got there.

    Someone that I have at least one thing in common with that I like conversing with.
