My friend JUST moved here about 2 months ago from the same place I grew up (Ohio) and he's now saying 'rad' and 'gnarly' and I'm getting sooooooooooooo irritated.

Thanks for this thread - glad others are fed up too.

He probably moved to the gnarly rad part of the state. He's not having a spazz yet, I hope!

One of my all time favorite Cal slanguists is Tommy Chong. Which is funny, because he's Canadian.
