According to Robert Anton Wilson, in the south US when someone has a satori or is born again and then do nothing except walk around in intoxicated spiritual delirium, they are called a "bliss ninny".

Hearn - A hearn is like an Australian jock. - Nope, never heard this word down here

Westie - This used to mean something like Hesher, but now means anyone living in the western suburbs of Sydney. - The term is understood but in NZ the hesher is universally called a bogan.

Ace TV! - An extremely positive affirmation, as in "Awesome!", or "Yay I cannot wait to do this!" etc. sounds like a semi-ironic local thing.

Pike - A verb, meaning to not do something because one simply cannot be bothered. - Yes, this word is commonly used in NZ also

Everything gets shortened. "Opening the pressies after some schooeys around the the barbie with the rellies on chrissy arvo", etc. - yes to all that except the schooeys


Pike is pretty common in Adelaide.

One that I don’t think is used anywhere else but South Australia is “minda”, which would be used as a derogatory term for someone saying they have special needs or are retarded. It comes from Minda, which is a service for people with disabilities.

clutch

east coast thing, I guess. I was in NJ and my roomie had to explain.

adjective, synonymous w/ 'cool'.. not as in clutching a clutch of eggs of course, but like popping the clutch in your 67 chevy pickup down to the delaware to go innertubing on a sunday morning with your new girl and her sister too.

that's slick, that's trick, that is CLUTCH.

My parents are the grand-children of Swedish (dad) and Norwegian (mom) immigrants. I grew up hearing/saying uffda (no irony) on the regular. Still comes out every now and then. Mostly when I'm with my parents.

My grandma would say 'uffda feeda fem'. I don't know what that means though. Probably a heavier 'uffda'?

Watch any sportscast (or even news sporting recap) and you'll hear them say this word 10 times. I'm not into sports and I've noticed it ad nauseam.

Not owned a tv in ten years, so that's no surprise. Still, people pretty much never use that word over here in the west.

Here's another one I am fond of: ILL.

It originated from the coal mining towns of Appalachia. Not ill as in hard workin roy here's been famous since taken ill with the black lung, but ill like that nugget of coal has got to be the biggest black lung I seen in all my pick chuckin days not even that time the mine collapsed and they were chukin picks for breakfast lunch an supper.

That's the illest lump of coal since steven hawking. That's tight, that's sick, that's ILL.

Oh and east coast again: WILD.

That's wild.. only this one I'd file under that other one, Words You Hate. Never heard it used so habitually until I went to new england. Wild... yuck.

Hold up. I didnt even see JTH's post!
That's great. First time I ever heard FINNA was last week this 18 yo I matched with on tindr.. wait, I actually posted a screenshot of that somewhere here. Anyway I figured it was either a purposeful 'ginna' typo or else somewhere along those lines.

I am fond of "result" as in "oh, result!"

But it sounds totally dumb when spoken with a bland American (midwest by way of mid-atlantic) accent.

Instead of asking someone how they are, asking "Are you winning?" - thankfully this has lost no charm post-Sheen mangling it.

How is it used? As in "I housed a gigantic pizza yesterday" or as in "My friend totally housed me last weekend" (meaning he ate all your food)?

the former. "a pizza" is sort of the ur-housed item, I think, or at least one of them

Trey and I decided that if you try to house something and fail, then the item has in fact housed you.

"I was hungry and ordered an XL, but it totally housed me and now I have to eat pizza for the next two days"

What region is 'rat's ass'? As in 'I don't give a rat's ass.' North America? New York specifically? In any case, it's the ne plus ultra of not-giving-a-fuckism and I like it a lot.

I’ve always taken this to mean having the ability to come through in the clutch. “You want that guy to bat in the bottom of the 9th because he’s clutch.” I guess I could see how that could morph into being synonymous with “cool”.
