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.

I thought based came from "freebase cocaine."

 :rofl: APS is not based by any definition of the word
For the invisible things of him since the creation of the world are clearly seen, being perceived through the things that are made, even his everlasting power and divinity, that they may be without excuse. Because knowing God, they didn’t glorify him as God, and didn’t give thanks, but became vain in their reasoning, and their senseless heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools.

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.

They don't get "insulted" now. They get

The ZMan touches on this subject from the dissident right perspective. His comments from 10,000 feet offer a nice overview of our situation.

Once you reject the official narrative what we should actually believe isn't really addressed by him though, other than an appeal to reality.

Those who who are in the matrix, rejecting being "based", will of course without irony paraphrase Pontius Pilate and say "what is reality?"
