On the Visual Thesaurus: Prohibition's linguistic hangover

October 2019 marks the centenary of the Volstead Act, the federal legislation that led to the passage of the 18th Amendment to the US Constitution—and to the misguided 13-year social experiment known as Prohibition. From January 1, 1920, until Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s inauguration in March 1933, the manufacture, sale, and importation of “intoxicating liquors” were officially outlawed. As everyone knows, all of those activities flourished illicitly. And so did new vocabulary items. I’m ...

On the Visual Thesaurus: The language of e-scooters

My May column for the Visual Thesaurus talks about how we talk about e-scooters, the rentable two-wheelers from companies like Lime, Bird, Skip, and Spin that have swooped into San Francisco, Oakland, and many other cities.   Lime e-scooters at a downtown Oakland BART station.   Full access is restricted to subscribers for three months; here’s an excerpt: Today’s electric scooters weigh between 25 and 40 pounds and are sometimes called LEVs, or “light electric vehicles.” (Almost ...

A guide to mountain slang

Photo: David Goehring The lingo and expressions of mountain culture can be confusing. It often sounds like a bunch of childish gibberish, and to be honest, it mostly is. If you find yourself conversing in a mountain town but can’t think of an appropriate term to describe your most recent outdoors adventure, a basic go-to is to take a word commonly viewed as undesirable and use it instead to describe something awesome. In the instance that you have no idea what the person is talking about, em...

17 signs you're a tourist in NYC

Photo: Jim Pennucci 1. You use a gold umbrella. Sidewalks in New York aren’t built for suburb-sized umbrellas. Leave them at home and do what us locals do: buy a small, $5 black umbrella with the curved handle on the street corner or in a deli. It should last you exactly one and a half rainstorms, depending on the wind. 2. You confuse bluntness with rudeness. We’re a friendly bunch and will help anyone who asks. But, we tell it like we see it. We walk fast, talk fast, and don’t linger for...

American living in Melbourne

Photo: W3155Y 1. I now expect more from my home country. Most educated Americans have some inkling of how the US fails when it comes to basic Western World rights like health care and education. But growing up in the States, you don’t realize just how fucked the situation is. That’s just our reality and our way of life, and we just deal with it, shelling out monthly student loan payments that cripple our potential savings accounts. Living in another country that actually supports its citi...

7 Irksome Ways Your Beloved Elders Fuck Up the English Language

If you’re a young person well-versed in blackness, you’re bound to be creative with the English language. But thanks to the Internet, this creativity has become less regional and maddeningly uniform. So a black dude could trek from New York to the Atlanta University Center in his Timbs and not be clowned for saying how long it took, deadass. Because he probably won’t be saying that. Though he will be clowned for wearing his Timbs at the freshman year pool party. Because he probably never took th...
