You know Brendan, here in the US when you use the term DOWN with something, it means you are UP for that (in slang of course), you "like" that, you are "cool" with that...have you heard people say, "yeah, I am down with that"?. The conversation goes like this:

Guy: Hey girl, how are you? Want to go out for a couple of drinks?
Girl: Sure, why not? I am down with that...

I must say I've never heard of that.

So does it mean that if you are really up (down) for something, you are really down (up) for it, or does it only mean that if you are up (down) for something you really are up (up) for it?

I used to smoke....quit a few years ago, but I still tend to smoke a little when I'm at a bar with friends. There's something about alcohol that makes me crave one! I'm getting better though...the last time I went to a bar I didn't have any!

Everyone feel free to congratulate me on my biggest TP milestone

Congrats hun! I knew you could do it!

Cheers,
Katie ;)

Thats why I think I call myself a social smoker. It is when I drink that I crave cigarretes. Never fails

Oh yes, thanks on the congrats! You have no idea how much work that was...just ask Cupcake overhere.

Ok now I am confused...hang on. Let me read it again. Ok, it goes like this...if you are really up for doing something, you really want to do it or you are ok with the plan, then you say "I am down with that" so it goes with the first part of your sentence.

I must say it is pretty highschoolish type of slang but I hear it enough and of course I know what it means...it sounds funny when...er...older people use it though (not old people, just older).

I have heard it both ways...the way Anne said is a more recent development...but it used to be DOWN WITH TAXES! or the such, and it meant Paaatttttoooooooiiii............

In regards for being up (down) or down (up) on things, does it also mean in the US that when you debit an account you are really crediting that account, and when you are crediting an account you are really debiting that account?

areinstein: "I've done your tax return, you have a big refund"
client: "That's great news"
areinstein: "Sorry, a refund actually means that you owe the taxman"
client: "Oh, I really feel down now"
areinstein: "No, you really feel up!"

Our fingers are blistered and sore...I am typing with my toes....

Yes, it is definitely a newly developed slang...recently, as in the last year or two. The correct way to use it is the way Brendan used it...you are DOWN with something meaning NOT ok with it. Like Joz...DOWN WITH TAXES...we are all down with Uncle Sam.

I will use this correctly too...I am DOWN with Bush (and not in a slang kind of way), I mean really DOWN with him...ok, now I am expecting to get beat up by few...bring it on!! I know karate!!! And Raven will defend me too...

Hahaha, Joz! can I borrow some newspaper from you...I am peedling over here...

I wouldnt dare use the DOWN slang with my clients hahaha...ok, that will fly real well I am sure. "Sir, are you down with my work or not? Cause if you arent down with it, I suggest to step it of my office dude..." hahahaha

Thank goodness, debits and credits stay the same in the non-slang world I live in.
