What do people say instead of ‘togs’ or ‘dairy’??

It took me like five years to explain the word “togs” to javier. He was like “why wouldn’t you just saw swimsuit”

also “canny” as in “canny with my money”.

they say swimsuit or bathing suit….and for dairy I think they just say ‘store’

umm, ‘stoked’ is used in the usa all the time. So are ‘fuck all’ and ‘dodgy’.

'elsewhere in the world' refers to more than just the usa… There is in fact more than one english speaking country

Can someone please add a list of what those words would mean to a silly american such as myself

  • Tramping = Hiking
  • Jandles = flip flops
  • Munted = wrecked, ruined, fucked up
  • Togs = swim suit
  • Dairy = a small convience store
  • Bach = a small holiday house
  • wop-wops = middle of nowhere/most of the south island
  • ta = thanks
  • Tiki tour = a holiday with no destination. road trip
  • Chocka = really full ‘chocka full’
  • Dodgy = shifty or unreliable
  • suss = organise/work out
  • stoked =  to be completely and intensely enthusiastic 
  • sweet as = cool/awesome/alright a term of affirmative acknowledgement
  • fuck all = jack shit, nothing, less than nothing
  • she’ll be right = don’t worry it’ll be ok/eh close enough/ ah it’ll be fine/good enough/if it falls we’l just stick her up again

As it turns out it’s really freaking hard to translate slang you assumed everyone used

calling a man a “pig” is literally dehumanising how do some people not think there’s anything wrong with that how

Because chicks, fillies, birds and bitches never get dehumanised. Those vixens always get away with this kind of shit. Especially the heifers, they’re the worst. What cows.

Still pretty proud of my response to this.

I was totally down with the change over already, but not knowing the backstory, this just convinced me so hard that Captain America needs to be a minority right now. 

Before, Marvel said, “This is what you want? Well fuck you, he isn’t going to help you.” 

Now Marvel is saying, “This is who you’re throwing under the bus? Who you’re tossing into prison like he doesn’t mean anything? Who you demonize regularly? Well fuck you, he’s going to save you anyway.”

And as far as the Thor thing, that whole, “If he be worthy part,” yeah, they’re giving the finger to the patriarchy right there saying, “Hey, women are worthy too.”

If these two things were spaced out, I might believe that they were just marketing ploy, but they come so close together at a time where this message is necessary, I can’t help but think that there are people at Marvel who get it and are going with it. 

I mean, if they were willing to fight Hitler during WWII, why not be willing to fight some of the evils of today? 

ONE. FUCKING. MILLION. TIMES. THIS.
