84.
A formally derogatory term denoting a lack of class. One day a bunch of high people decided they liked the sound of this word, and to redefine it to mean something good. What exactly was never specified just that it was good. Seems to work well with the word "absolutely"
Speaker 1 (in response to a nicely rolled joint): "Absolutely ratchet"

Speaker 2: "So after looking on urban dictionary I must know what do you mean by ratchet? All the definitions on urban dictionary are negative seemingly..."

Speaker 1: "C'mon man! It's 2013 bad means good? Keep up keep up"

----------------------------------
Speaker 1: "I like the cut of your jib"

Speaker 2: "Absolutely ratchet"
