Trends That Have Emerged in My Absence from This Country (Part One of Question Mark)

1. The music from “Benny Hill” has become the hip pop culture reference du jour.

2. The term hipster has gone from something only hipsters-in-denial knew about to something all people use all the time.

3. The iPhone has become a household appliance for many, but somehow also become the object of extreme hatred for many others.

4. The term geek has come to mean anyone with more than a passing interest in anything. Know how to fix a car? You’re a car geek. Know how to do anything else useful or interesting? You’re a (insert applicable category) geek.

5. Saying “Really?” when you think something is stupid.
