I honestly don't care if i hear strangers saying it, however it honestly just makes them sound completely idiotic and uneducated. I'm glad none of my friend actually use it. The terms get rather annoying and over used though. However, the term i've been hearing as of late, "bae" is honestly something I cant stand when people actually use it. I already thought using the word baby and babe were stupid already when talking to your significant other.

I don't say them but I don't min if I hear it. Barely anyone at my high school said it. (I learned what yolo actually is about 1 1/2 months ago)

Stupid。
That's my opinion on the words。

Don't understand why people used it to begin with,
let alone even begin to understand why it's still in use。。(-__-)||

Swag used to be a word I didn't like so much, but now it's grown on me. Swag started out in Geocaching as an acronym for Stuff We All Get, and that's fine with me if I imagine that's what people mean when they say swag.

Yolo, on the other hand, is an excuse for doing something that is usually dangerous for either them or someone else, or usually, both. Yolo is a terrible cop-out.

On the other hand, saying yolo in the sense that you want to preserve your life and make the most out of your day is probably the only good way to say it.

That's not saying much since we have so many Yuri and Yaoi fans here.

"I'm yoloing so hard that I forgot to swag." Probably the worst thing I've ever heard....:>

Depends on the context that the words are used in. I really don't let them bother me though when used in poor context.

The term swag, while silly, originated as being used to mean "booty or plunder" which is fairly close to our current term in the late 1700s. It's old slang that's making a comeback. Meaning in about 300 years we'll hear people finally bringing back "fo shizzle!" (Kind of kidding about the last part - but the fun fact about swag is true).

Regarding YOLO, I prefer this definition of YOLO:

i dont associate with those kind of peoples.

From my experience its mostly an american thing though.

I dont know anyone who says that in the bahamas. unless its to make fun of someone (mostly tourists cuz no one in the bahamas says that shit)
There was this group of americans that all had neon yellow hats with yolo on it. they thought they were so cool, such hot shit, but in reality everyone was making fun of them. If anyone was nice to them its was only cuz they wanted to stick it to the girls cuz they were all fine haha.
But yolo and swag rots the brain.
