Slang, to me, feels like you're trying to get around what you really want to say. You avoid saying what you really think by using a term instead of being direct. Plus, I just think they often sound ridiculous.

Anyway, I've never been into it. Even when I was young and hip (ha ha) I was constantly like, what? What does that even mean?

Its usually not an evolution of language. Its usually a trend that phases in and out like everything else.
