What are you good at?

white people saying 'bare' and 'yard' leave it out ffs
Is "leave it out" a phrase with cockney origins?

I bet a lot of the phrases us white middle class people now use casually were once considered similarly pretentious.

did i see a language is a alien virus thread here? this stuff is a good example of how word and phrase replicate themselves through us. little bits of code we repeat. speak through us.

I remember a few of those things. My parents went through an EastEnders phase.

I was always staunchly Hollyoaks.

received opinions. joke formats. turns of phrase. intonations. also things like how we compose our face for the camera. how we arrange our limbs in the chair.

how it breaks everything up into a discontinuous sequence of quotations
 
You could argue the homogenisation of slang, accents etc in the internet age mirrors a lot of the other aesthetic developments. If you were to explain the technological shifts to someone in 1970 they might imagine a real explosion of creativity, all these new words and phrases, flowery hybrids and combinations, and that has occurred, maye people would talk of a web 1.0 and web 2.0 distinction here, with intensity and difference plateauing when the money comes in with centralisation, restrictions and surveillance, dumbing down, policing

I'm good at gambling (I'm very lucky). So my favorite game that has brought me luck is bacracat. I recommend this game to those who like to win not by logic (I play on firstcasino , where you can try yourself and your luck too). It is difficult to win a large sum of money there. The biggest amount I won was 800 euros. I think that winning 100-200 euros in a few minutes is cool (but don`t forget that you can lose a larger amount, so don`t forget to stop in time)
