I always thought that BA stood for what I didn't get at K-State when I realized I needed to take Spanish 5 in order to get one. Now at that point it had been 3 years since I took Spanish 4 so no recuerdo nada. I quickly switched to getting a BS degree which I suppose says a lot right there. Anyway, some how, over the weekend I got into a discussion with our son-in-law about how if something is really cool, phat, etc. it is now BA..short for bad ass. I told my son-in-law I would use this term as often as possible so that I too can be considered at least somewhat BA. Nothing says irrelevant more than saying "Phat" or "cool" when you should say BA. How come only younger people get to change the word for "cool" and they don't even text us to tell us?
