Useless and unnecessary conversation attempted to fill the silence in an awkward situation. Commonly backfires into feelings of loneliness and social discomfort. Usually is intiated by comments regarding the current weather, weather pattern of the past/future few days or major weather disturbances in the recent past.

The act of supplying a person with irrelevant information about oneself in an attempt to appear friendly and normal to a person one is meeting for the first time. This practice I'd particularly important to extroverts (people who take pleasure in spewing random bits of their life stories at anybody who will listen,) who use it to try to judge and impress others with the ability to observe the weather and remember how many siblings they have. Unfortunately, these skills are widely regarded by introverts as both unimpressive and anyway pointless due to the fact that introverts and extroverts alike do not usually give a damn about how long their neighbors have been married and are not likely to remember unless their neighbors are close friends, in which case small talk usually isn't used anyway. Note: all people resort to small talk in uncomfortable situations.
Person 1: How was the new Star Trek movie?

Person 2: It was great except the people I went with have never even watched any other Star Trek before. Most of the car ride was awkward small talk.

When you come across that person you haven't seen in a while, but you really have no close connection with them anyways. But you know... you don't want to be rude and just walk right past them... so then it turns to a complete bullshitting session between you and this aquiantence.

Example conversation:

"YO! Hey whats up man? What you been doing?"
"Oh.. yeah I had a baby and shit..."
"Oh thats cool....."

Example of small talk:

"YO! Hey whats up man? What you been doing?"
"Oh.. yeah I had a baby and shit..."
"Oh thats cool....."

A bullshit social ritual where people decide to talk about the weather and how they're doing instead of topics that are actually interesting and fun to talk about. People often resort to small talk to avoid being awkward and as a way to conform to acting normal or expected.
Small talk prevents people from talking about interesting subjects that will improve their knowledge and foresight

Conversations about nothing that make you waste your breath, time, energy and ask why me? People with low intelligence usually make small talk because they do not want you to realize how stupid they are. Small talk is why people have become dumb, conformed and useless. Small talk is a way for nosy people to try and find out who you are. And when they do not find out who you are, they keep the small talk going leading to infinite small talk about nothing of substance. What is better than small talk? Dentist. What is better than small talk? Falling asleep on the subway with an open purse.

A completely Object Oriented (OO) language that was created to be as easy as smalltalk (chit-chat). In actuality, it's the programmer's bane, driving otherwise sane individuals, particularly college students who take Smalltalk classes, to bouts of heavy drinking, depression, and in some cases, suicidal tendencies.
Student 1 - "Why oh why do we have to take smalltalk?"
Student 2 (Whilst drinking heavily from a handle of rum) - "Because those fuckers won't bloody well let us take C++ which would actually be practical!"
