Dude is is pretty much Nth American slang for a bloke, fella, guy, geezer, joker-whatever as far as I know. A generic form of address for the male of the species. Just out of interest is addressing someone as "Dude" ,as in, "Hey dude what's up?" viewed positively by Nth Americans? I guess it's similar to "How's it going mate?", but to me it always seems like a pejoritive form of address in the first person-as opposed to the positive connotations of "He's a good dude/guy" etc.

BTW I love 'The Big Lebowskii'-but I wouldn't want to be him...Dude.
