untranslatable.co is a fun website, described as “the first multilingual urban dictionary.” You can search for slang words from over 100 languages, and it’s fascinating to just explore and see the slang used by other people in other countries, in other languages.

My favorite entry: kalsarikannit. Here’s the definition:

(noun) Getting drunk at home, in a hotel room or other comparable location in your underwear, with no intention of heading out to a bar later on.

A nice feature: exploring the entries. I have to admit, I don’t know that I’d have much need to do an actual search… but exploring is very much a fun time.
