Problematic

A word that describes behavior that is only offensive to people in Silicon Valley or elite colleges. If someone accuses your behavior of being problematic you are likely to be fired or get written up for an HR violation if you work at a tech company.

The fact that Kamdesh only eats pasta in the company cafeteria and the fact that he only dates Italian women is problematic because he is appropriating European culture and is sexist against Indian women in his dating preferences.

The Medium Post Humblebrag

When someone does something moderately impressive, but not newsworthy and writes a blog post on Medium explaining how they did it. It ends up becoming an indirect attempt to show others how brilliant they are.

How I got into X incubator with 3 friends who're all smart

How I grew my website to 500,000 daily vistors over the span of a week with nothing but a banana and a used condom.

How I got 10 sales from 2 phone calls.

Broke the Internet

The most cringe worthy, click-bait garbage expression used by mediocre at best journalists, who try to get the type of person who regularly orders Pumpkin Spice Lattes to click on their articles.

Fuckboy: "Celebrity X" basically broke the internet when they did something not that surprising but interesting enough to warrant 3 seconds of attention on Twitter over.

Zedd: The only people who can be accused of breaking the internet in this apartment are the people at Comcast.

Ponytail Bias

When you automatically assume someone is a great engineer because of their ponytail. This bias most often occurs with men who also have metal glasses frames and a beard that goes down to their neck.

James often experiences pony tail bias when he visits Seattle even though he's really a musician who plays with a band no ones ever heard of.
