Back to the Future: slang miscommunication

February 22nd, 2013

Class today reminded me of this clip and how the slang we use today can be very confusing to someone in a different generation (and vice versa).

Instead of “This is crazy,” “This is ridiculous” or maybe “This is intense,” there is “This is heavy” .

For those of you who haven’t seen the Back to the Future movies, Marty (young guy) has time travelled from the future (1985) and Doc  is from 1955.
