  • "Old-School" - A continually used term by all ages, to describe older tradition methods, used by everyone including the younger, hypocritical, gen Yhine gen, who reluctantly uses it because they are too busy whining about many other things, for them to come up with a new and unnecessary replacement term, -which had it been created, should have hopefully set them apart as the next new "cool" generation. Just as many terms/concepts are timeless, such as mini-skirts are always ever fashionable, or term "cool", the current, soon to be replaced gen, is still trying to find a meaningful contribution before hitting middle age.
