It's funny, innit; if you use enough highly condensed substitutes for words, slang derivatives and such, you make the impression that first hand experience is much too tame for you, and that you are armored with layers of rough experience. It's like having tokens from a whorehouse casino in your pocket. It doesn't mean you've been there, but it makes you look tough and seasoned and experienced. 'COurse it doesn't add up to a hill of beans--it could be all bushwah and buzz.
IF you try hard enough, you can sound like a duck.
This does not make you a duck.
