A question about how The Kids talk

I read an article recently that used, without explaining, the acronym YOLO. Googling it I found the assertion that nobody over 25 would know what it meant while everybody under 25 would. In my testing so far, that prediction is nearly 100% accurate.

How would the kids talk if it weren't for rappers?

I had to Bing it, too. Just out of curiousity.

O tempora! O mores!

They'd speak English

I knew it, but I teach a lot of undergrads. I have a hard time getting to understand that in all likelihood someday they'll be trying to get a job that requires them to demonstrate facility in speaking and writing appropriate English.

Ah, well.

"getting them to understand"

Sheesh.
