I took the test too, having just found it.
I passed as a person who grew up in the '50's.
What a coincidence: I did. I think the slang was
'richer', for lack of a better word.
"Wazzup", "bad" for good: just don't do it for me.
A discussion of slang and the changes it undergoes.

The other day from Wiki I pulled up "the Democratic Party is one of five-hundred forty two political parties in the U.S..." -then downstairs in the midst of the same article it suddenly broke off and meandered into "I like eggs. Eggs are good. I'm hungry. Yum... what was I saying?"It is a somewhat entertaining site, but not always easy to navigate and of doubtful accuracy--like Wikipedia! You have to wonder about a site that invites you to post your own "factual" articles. Did you know during the Revolutionary War there was a Battle of Left Elbow? I didn't either until I wrote all about it! It eventually was found to be of suspicious veracity (I'm shocked, shocked, I say!) and was removed after several days.
However it seems on Wikipedia you get these gems only here and there, whereas the Urpin' Dicitonary supplies them with every word. They could be more creative though; it seems to regularly descend into the vulgar.
