Nov 27 Word of the Day
A stupid person; it refers to the lack of surface area on an individual's brain. The general thought is that the more surface area (wrinkles, creases, etc.) a brain has, the smarter the person is. Conversely, a person with a smooth brain (no wrinkles) has less surface area and would therefore be stupid.
That fucking smooth brain put his shirt on backwards again...

That smooth brain is dumber than a pile of shit.

Adjective: Often used by yuppies, hipsters, or liberal news outlets to describe "cool" and "authentic" neighborhoods full of working-class, predominantly ethnic people and businesses.

Vibrant is not usually used to describe "the hood" though--a vibrant neighborhood is a neighborhood where it's jumpin', but you won't get jumped.
Kelsey: Man, I love the Mission! Look at all these amazing Mexican murals on the buildings.
Cody: This is such a vibrant neighborhood. Let's go get pupusas.

Newscaster: Local residents of the vibrant Midtown neighborhood are fighting to keep from being evicted in the face of rising rent prices.
