Description

In which Hank discusses his new obsession. There are /so many/ words for "Cool" because what is cool is always changing and we need new words to embody that new aesthetic. This has resulted in a wonderful and beautiful (and sometimes worrying) array of words that mean the same thing (cool) and yet different things (the cool of a particular place and time).

This discussion of when and how slang becomes cultural appropriation is one of the best I've seen: http://www.reddit.com/r/linguistics/comments/2xqe13/slang_and_cultural_appropriation/

And this article on what cultural appropriation is is a great introduction: http://everydayfeminism.com/2015/06/cultural-appropriation-wrong/
