Interesting note about the word awesome:

If I'm not mistaken awesome (at least according to the dictionary) does not necessarily indicate something good. It just means something awe-inspiring or wonder-causing, but people usually use in the same way as saying "cool" or "sweet".  That's not necessarily bad, but I do find it interesting.

I think that's great. TeddyR

I'll admit, I use the word awesome way too much. It's fun to say!

Seriously, if somebody wants to use a word for something huge or awe-inspiring to mean "good," I think it's GREAT.

Awesome.  Thumbup

Wicked! TeddyR

The one that seems kind of funny in hindsight is "decent," which we used all the time when I was a kid. It's like emphasizing the goodness of something with an understatement. "Yeah, that's proper and acceptable."

Another interesting note: "Awful" originally meant about the same thing--"so as to inspire reverence." It didn't originally have the strictly negative connotations it has now.

And "terrific" things are supposed to terrify us, in the same way that horrific things horrify us. "Fantastic" things are products of imagination, while "fabulous" things are the subject of myths and legends.

And we should all strive to be "gay" (happy and carefree).

About 85% of my former classmates would have found that hilarious. Bluesad

If it helps any, I think you're already way gayer than I am.

If you want to get straight to the song I'm Gay skip to 1:27.

It's from the movie Brain Candy, by the way.

Perhaps Derf, I think deep down inside we're all a bit gay though.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
