Lying flat refers to a defeatist lifestyle in Chin, where people stop working, desiring material acquisition, and tap out of any social life – sometimes for good. By lying flat, young people are participating in a kind of non-cooperation movement, rather than surrendering themselves to China's oppressive work culture where they see little hope of social mobility.

The term "boyo" is a part of "Wenglish" (Welsh-English) that has simply grown from a Welsh take on the English word "boy". Although perhaps not widely used today, it is used to address someone, not necessarily young, frequently with negative connotations.

Boyo is a word used to describe your mates, similar to pals or fellas.

It is often used to take the piss and when the end of the word is more exaggerated eg "boYO" it can show a sense of dominance from the person speaking the word.

"Boyo" has evolved into a cult following in South Africa as it can be seen as a satirical word, mocking the lives of rich young white South Africans who feel entitled.

This word is legendary and will always be a part of Urban slang.

Boyo is supposed to be a Welsh saying for a friend or mate, but i've never heard anyone in Wales say it!!!

The only people i hear saying it are Enlgish people trying to take the piss!

Ususally putting on a really bad accent, that sounds more Indian in origin than Welsh!
English guy: All right boyo?

Welshman: Yeah fine, err, why are you putting on that Indian accent?
