With the latest fads and trends coming and going so quickly, it's hard for us parents to keep up. So what's cool today? Let's go directly the keepers of cool -- teenagers! On Monday, Reddit decided to ask teen Redditors, "What's cool nowadays?" The results were both intriguing and puzzling.

Positive things such as "being smart and nerdy" were trending, along with hashtags and Ambercrombie & Fitch (as we suspected!). But other mentions of what was cool were downright puzzling. Things like "touching the booty," "wearing your cell phone around your neck with a kind of cell phone lanyard," and "ask.fm" had us scratching our heads.

One 18-year-old even wrote: "Hating cool things is cool. Snapchat gets popular? Suddenly it's shit. Facebook gets popular? Suddenly it's overcrowded. Big bang theory gets popular? Suddenly it's not so funny anymore."

Clearly, teens have very interesting ideas of what's in and what's not. So to help you understand what teens find cool nowadays, here's a top 11 list (because a top 10 list is no longer cool).
