Starting his research in 1993, a linguist from the University of Pittsburgh has recently published a paper on the meaning of the word "dude". Usually considered a slang word used by the "X-Game" generation only, it turns out that there may actually be a deeper meaning.

Personally, I have used the word "Dude" since my High School days WAAAAAAY back when. When my hair was quite long, and when I was singing in a band, I wanted to be Robert Plant. It's refreshing to note that not everyone takes themselves so seriously. Go get 'em Dude!
