    Flicker?????

    Ok so started riding consistantly over a month ago and have only had one car (teenagers of course) honk their horn at me for no reason and yesterday while doing a 50+ ride between Jaffery and Peterborough NH had a kid in a car (full of teenagers) yell out flicker. Now my 33 year old self must not be hip to this new fandangled lingo these whippersnappers are using so I was wondering if anyone else knew what a flicker is.

    in the meantime, on the tvforums.com

    ok so started packing and moving my stuff to a new place over a month ago and had one biker (old guy of course) drive over my teli's flicker that somehow fell out on the road and i went back to pick it up while doing a 50+ drive from jaffery and peterborough nh. Now my 18 year old self must not be educated to this old fandangled customs these geezers are doing so i was wondering if anyone else knew why he flipped me off completely on top of trashing my flicker.

    There are many meanings for the term. So which one was it?

    Flicker, huh? Maybe that's an east coast thing. Or maybe I really AM getting old

    I've never heard the remote called the flicker either. It was always the clicker.

    Probably a mistake. It shows them that you noticed.
