Good evening dear audience. As you all know I am here to discuss one of the aspects of the society in which I live in.

I find myself constantly dumbing down my speech and explaining vocabulary they should already know like "banter" and “naughty” . It's quite sad to think that these, my friends, are the smarter of the general masses. It's quite pathetic indeed. However you have to hand it to them, whatever teen-age girls lack in...
