comment What's the difference between “Ich habe dich Lieb” and “Ich liebe dich”?
Interesting you ask that, since I experienced the exact same confusion even though being a native German - over 10 years ago, a girl I loved said "Ich hab dich lieb" to me and meant "Ich mag dich sehr gern", but I understood it as "Ich liebe dich". The good part of it is, that today she's my wife, so no harm done. ;-)

My hope is, that it's not because of a degeneration of language capability among young German people...

comment Gehen wir Friedhof?
Thanks for mentioning Kanakisch, that's exactly what it is. I was only very suprised to hear it from natives. Of course, when joking about it, I also used it (especially since I like "Mundstuhl", which is quite similar to Erkan und Stefan in that respect), but here I wasn't sure if this boy meant it that way or if it's really the way kids talk nowerdays.

@Takkat: That's why I used "currently", the one which is used at the moment. Back when I was a pupil, we also had expressions, where our parents shook their heads, now I do the same with the kids from today.

Interesting thoughts - but I guess he really meant asking if they should go that way.
