I know that gbs is cool, good and very with it so I thought I'd ask because it sounds dumb as hell and really irritating but one sign of getting old is thinking that the younger generation's slang is stupid. Just trying to figure out if I am too cool or if I need to start tucking my stomach into my underwear.

Do you say it like the "a" "Sam" or do you have to have like a bit of a British accent like "dom"?

God I fucking love Diablo 3 gold, it even paid for this shitty title

You know how bae is just barely starting to fade away as people realize it's stupid? Fam is still on the upswing. Expect to see it for another couple years.

EDIT: also if you're above like 25 (like I am) you just look pathetic saying it no matter how popular it is.

If you even find yourself asking the question, then yes you're getting old. Them's the rules.

We had it all wrong. He's not a frog killer, he's a killer frog.

Fam is a stupid thing to say. The problem with it (besides it sounding loving ridiculous) is there is absolutely no situation where saying it sounds natural, so everyone who says it just sounds like they're forcing it in to sound cool.

Note that I am definitely getting old.
