"checking"

Not the noun variety as in a checking account, but the verb "checking".

For example...(directly from school student's mouth this week)
"LeShun was checking LaBianca cuz' she fat".

Checking is so old school.

Scale is a verb, though. As in "We need to scale back our efforts to stop students from checking, since they're going to do it anyway."

Did someone use "scale" in place of "weigh"? Because if so, that's just wrong.

But google is a verb, right? Google is all things.
Checking, also a verb already - a very useful one.
And yes, scale was being used in place of weigh.
