    Yes, you're right..

    that lingo is probably a bit long in the tooth now.

    @Donzah will know what suitable vernacular the cool kids are uttering in the streets these days.

    That's me 15min after a conversation with my son and his friends whilst they pre-load for a Friday night out.

    I thought the word was "woke"? But snow is always white (except when it's not), so I suppose it's not woke.

    Stoke is good.
    No word has ever evolved to replace it...
    "keep the stoke"
    "feel the stoke"
    "look at the stoke"

    Takes a bit of froth to get stoked at an older age. However the stoke is stronger.

    Uni days in the 80's were: "We are absolutely stoked about . . . . . " meaning we are very excited.
