Kim brought a hilarious slang book with her from Germany, that helps you learn "hip" or "modern" phrases in other languages. It shows the translations in English (American & British), German, Spanish, French, and Italian. I don't think it's possible to peruse this book without laughing out loud. Some of the phrases it teaches you are just ridiculously funny. Here's a sample:
1) hella, mad "The movie was hella exciting."
German: abartig "Der Film war abartig spannend."
2) to take a deuce
3) to chill, to hang, to chilax
4) sweet, the shit
5) hairy pits
6) Bummer! Crapola!
German: Alter Latz!
7) rad, sick, off the chain: "This song is really sick."
German: amok "Der Song ist echt amok!"
8) barking spiders
9) homie, dawg
10) hard core chillin' "My hobbies are soccer, hard core chillin' and listening to music."
German: Extreme Gammling "Meine Hobbys sind: Fussball, Extreme Gammling und Musik horen."
11) party for people over 30
12) male anorexic
