Here's a classic piece of slang originating right here in the Bay Area:
hella (adj or adv) - very or very much
example: Maddie! Ban him! He's hella spamming the forums.
Wow, that would've completely thrown me, if someone said that to me, but now I know... Thx
Haha. I opened this thread to list that one! I've lived in the Bay Area for a long time and that still drives me crazy!
It's hella annoying!
Cheers to everyone who's posted.
Some I've heard before, some I haven't.
It's nice to know new ones.

A classic in Boston - Wicked pissa. Something is really good. Better if it is related to Boston. Such as "Did you see the Celtics game, wicked pissa."
I'm sorry...but, being down here in Texas...I never heard that one before...it is hil-ar-ious! I think if I heard that one before the heads-up from you (especially in Boston accented-ness)...I would have fell out on the floor...dying of laughter. Thank you ...so much...for sharing that one...that is classic!
Now if I hear that saying has spread to Texas - with Boston accent - I'll know who's spreading it.
The tamer version is wicked good. Such as the t-shirt I saw today - wicked good pats fan.
