Based.

This seems to be the popular slang for the year. I see it everywhere and finally looked it up because I was getting confused as to its use. I was at first interpreting it as "grounded" as in, "He is grounded in common sense." Then I saw it used other ways. I suppose I'm confused because it appears to be used for so many different things that you might as well throw it in anywhere you want.

Based APS, yo.

I've given up trying to keep track of what words mean. I'm an old man. I'm from a generation to whom "woman" means a female humanoid, "man" means a male humanoid, "yes" means affirmative, and "no" means negative. It seems like today words don't have real meanings, they means whatever the speaker happens to think they mean at that particular moment.

 :rofl: APS is not based by any definition of the word
For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;

Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.

For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead

Based is…anything very anti liberal, especially if it insults the hell out of them

I have heard it used seemingly in the way that the object is not a crazy leftist, but I have heard it used in different ways I don't really know for certain.

If it doesn't insult them now just means they haven't gotten to it yet.
