Mensagem:  The only one of the three that I've ever heard is "stop and chat".  I assure you that the expression has been around for decades.  For decades.  There is nothing new or recent about it.

These slang dictionaries are great for understanding texts, dialogues, etc.  The problem is that they are not good ways of learning slang.  What good does it do, what value does it have, to learn expressions not commonly heard?  You are better off learning the slang and idioms of those with whom you speak English most often.  What are they saying?  Where and under what circumstances are they saying it?
