Man. Kids today, huh? With the Snapchat and the Bieber, it’s nearly impossible to keep up with the changing interests of teens — especially if you’re an Old with a keen interest in youth culture.
To help, Reddit asked its teenage users, “What’s cool?” Read their responses below, so you can become culturally fluent enough to infiltrate a high school as an undercover cop and totally fit in with the cool kids:
• “Touching the booty”
• Stick-and-poke tattoos
• Having strong eyebrow game
• Bindis as a fashion statement
• Weed and acid
• A nose ring (“lip piercings are ‘emo’ and eyebrow piercings are wannabe surfer”)
• Being smart and nerdy
• Vineyard Vines
• Wearing your cell phone around your neck
• Hawaiian shirts
• Lots of dating
Bindis? EDM? Vineyard Vines? Time to worry about the youth.
