Millennial is an identity given to a broadly and vaguely defined group of people. There are two wings of "Millennial" that are often at odds with each other: Generation Y (people born between 1981-1991) and Generation Z (born between 1991-2001). People of Generation Y often have characteristics similar to Generation X, which is why Generation Z will confuse Generation Y with Generation X and then claim to be the generation that represents "MIllennial," when in fact, birth years for Millennial range from about 1981-2001, just as the birth-years for Baby Boomers ranged from 1946-1964.
Both Generation Y and Generation Z can be called "Millennials," with the primary difference between the two being technology. Generation Y grew-up on personal computers, cell phones, and video game systems, while Generation Z has grown up on tablets, smartphones, and apps. Yet, the common ground between both generations is that both have been transforming and altering communication and identity--not just in the United States but globally.

Roasting someone means that you know how to be tactfully mean (snarky) without being mean-spirited in poking fun at someone, teasing, ruthlessly ridiculing, trash talking, and even mocking them.
Roasting people that you know is usually a bad idea because people will believe that there is truth in every joke and might laugh in the moment but remember nothing but bitterness, which is why roasting should be reserved for when a person truly deserves it.

Generically known as a worthless asshole. But more precisely, a prick is an incessantly annoying or obnoxious person who escalates their behavior the more they are ignored.
Most pricks need to relax.

Aloof means "at a distance," and not close. Shyness is often the result of being aloof. An aloof person usually needs tunnel vision for the tranquility and happiness to block out and ignore distractions that undermine his or her concentration. Yet, there are valid reasons to be aloof: such as, studying, work, or to maintain the structure of control within an organization or industry by filtering out and blocking unwanted contact.
The word aloof is often bandied about as a negative label as a way to attack an unwanted person by making them feel that it is his or her fault for being unwanted. An aloof person is likely to be more "things-oriented," rather than "people-oriented," but that is not proof that an aloof person is not equally capable of socializing--just not equally interested in doing so because people don't innovate or get rich by being the life of a party.

An asshole likes to make stuff up, deny seemingly small details, or randomly change their stories and narratives, because he or she thinks that the other person: just doesn't get it; is not allowed to understand or define the behavior of the asshole because the asshole is a victim; or because the other person can't prove what it is the asshole is doing.
Most assholes are emotionally, physically, mentally, or sexually abusive.

Rickrolling originated in 2006 as an internet prank in which people would be tricked into clicking on a fake link that actually connected to a video of Rick Astley's, "Never Gonna Give You Up." There are many layers to why the prank is funny, namely the fact that Astley's voice doesn't match preconceived notions of his image--in that, his voice makes him sound like a large black man such as, Barry White. Because of this, rickrolling can be a metaphor for the conflict created by the internet (i.e. "What the hell is this?") where something false can connect with something real in a good or bad way (i.e. emotions). That is why real rickrolling refers primarily to the use of music or music videos on the internet to speak the real message for the user like a disc-jockey would do, because sometimes, music is needed to connect more deeply than the written word can. The risk of rickrolling, nonetheless, is that it can create ethereal narratives and connections with people not known by the user and make them feel deranged because the music is being used to communicate with them.
Before you go rickrolling or social media scrolling, consider that some people might think you're just internet trolling.

Weird is a very subjective word that lacks a finite definition because it is a word used for emoting. Weird can be used maliciously or ignorantly to describe behavior, traditions, or rituals that are simply misunderstood by the person using the word, "weird," when better words would be strange, odd, unusual, foreign, or fascinating. The word "weird" can also be used to deliberately dehumanize people and reduce their life-story in order to exclude them from social circles or relationships, because the person using the word "weird," thinks that the other person is trying to white-wash who they are and a history of doing weird stuff. Typically, the best use of the word, "weird," is to describe a sketchy person who does things that are abusive or annoying, or a person who is OK with being an asshole.
Anyone who is OK with being an asshole is weird because that person is simply unwilling to admit to being a jerk or bully.
