Mensagem:  Would everyone please stop saying SLANGS!   You are hurting my ears! 

SLANG is always singular unless you find here in the forum.   rsrsrs   Only in cyber Brazil do people say slangs.  If you want to say girias, say something like slang expressions, words in slang, or simply slang.
1) He knows a lot of slang.
2) I learned two new slang expressions/words today
3) I am going to the EMB Forum to see if anyone is using slangs today.   rsrsrs.

Sid, some slang is more common with one age group than with another.  The slang you used in your post is most definitely still used in the USA, but I would expect to hear it among older people.

I burn the midnight oil, but my son studies late.
I paint the town red, but my son has an awesome time clubbing.
I am out of the woods now, but my son getting back to normal.
I see a girl with a nice rack, but my son sees a girl with nice shoes.  (breasts)
My friend two-times his wife, my son´s friend is a dog.  (cheats, unfaithful)
I see some great wheels, my son sees a nice ride.  (car)
I think it´s cool, my son thinks it´s awesome.  (wonderful)
