@swollenpickles: I won't consider that a stereotype sir. By American standards being an Australian you have to add "mate" onto the end of everything lol. Just joking mate;) Mate's cool in my book anyways.
@sred: you're "what's shaking" reminds me of "what's poppin?" And the "wuz up" reminds me of "WAZZA" from the old Budweiser commercial... Some of us Americans still say "WAAAAAZZZZZZZZZZZAAAAAAA" on occasion. Thanks mate! :D

...how about...'Hey buddy, can you spare a dime?'..Lol. My most used greeting would be...'How's it going?'...'...or 'How are you doing today?'

I've used "How're they hangin?", and the response would be "long loose and full of juice." that was in my younger days, now it's just Hello, unless its a really grouse sheila and then I may try 'hellooooo'

Shortened from "Are you all right?" gives us "Alright?" or "a'right?" or "right?" to which the response is usually the same but not in question form such as:

I am latin but lived in America and England most of my adult life. The one I liked the most was "wazzamara?" which one latin-US american was using everyday and it is short of "what's the matter?".
