On language: facebook suicide, fixies of hipsters, business time

by Josh Kimball

*Facebook suicide – Forcing one’s self to stop social networking; leaving Facebook.

*A fixie of hipsters – as reported by Kottke, the fixie is a potential collective noun for this elusive group.

*Business time: From the HBO show Flight of the Conchords, business time refers to a predetermined appointment to have sexual relations. In my humble opinion, it may also be used more generically to indicate any period which would have heretofore been called “go time.”
