I was playing L.A. Noire and realized how much fun it is just talk like that.
it's off topic, but i've always loved vernacular, whether it's engineering tech-speak or hiphop slang.
one of the attractions of the created worlds of sci-fi has traditionally been the vernacular of the place[s]
and time[s]. "Looper" is such a delight because it is constantly intertwining snippets of SF-speak with
noir slang and Mr. Johnson's created world lingo. one of the reasons i'm enthralled with "Primer" is
the way in which Shane Carruth refused to dumb-down the engineering verbiage.
