    Maybe some do, but I've never hear it among friends. Friends and bodies tend to call each other by nothing but name.

    фигня - a thing, stuff (дай мне эту фигню), nothing special(что у тебя? - фигня)

    Except that its content is vulgar there are words that even people from 100 years before in Russia don't know.it goes way way way back.And Russians never use words such: АБСТУЛЗАДОМБЕЙ or АЙОВЩИНА.
    So i recommend you find some other slang websites because these ones are just useless and won't help you learn modern slang.

    What about that one не фига себе or something, don't know how to spell it .. something like 'wow' right?
    oh and I like '..в курсе' meaning to know, although I don't know if that's really 'slang', is it?

    Well, it's нифига себе to begin with not не фига себе.As for it's meaning it's kind of like: you don't say!, duh!.
    I'll give you some examples:

    этот фильм интереснее чем другой = This film is more interesting than the other one
    нифига себе!= you dont' say!,really!?,duh (in a sarcastic meaning).Also similar to ничего себе.

    As for в курсе:

    Я в курсе что она ему этого не сказала = Im aware of the fact that she didn't tell him that.

    Держать кого-нибудь в курсе = to keep somebody informed (about something).
    e.g. Держи меня в курсе = keep me informed

    Is there a difference between the two, then?
    Ни фига себе! & нифига себе

    I thought that it simply means: Неплохо, in a positive meaning, just like in the example given by BETEP. According to what VOLK says, it has a sarcastic meaning, which I didn't know about. Can sb explain?

    Re:

    Hm,no. i don't think there's a difference.
    It's a mixture of sarcasm and unconcern.Actually there's not an actual word to describe it exactly but that's just about it.
    Some other u might see:

    фиг тебе!
    иди нафиг!
    нафига
    фиговый
    офигеть
    офигенно

    In my experience it mostly expresses surprise. A touch of sarcasm is possible but not necessary. It's the same as "ничего себе!". It means something like "I never thought it could be that way."
    Examples:
    -Смотри, Ваня ходит на голове
    -Ни фига себе!(=I never thought he could do that)

    -Эта вещь стоит 1000$
    -Ни фига себе! (=I couldn't imagine that it is so expensive)
    "Happy new year, happy new year
    May we all have a vision now and then
    Of a world where every neighbour is a friend"

    Some more slang words
    ботва - в смысле "чушь". Что за ботва? What a rubbish!
    хрень - Что за хрень ты несешь? What are you talking about?
