GUEST,Rossey BS: When did tips become hacks? (38) RE: BS: When did tips become hacks? 21 Jul 15


I can't hack the over-use of the word awesome!   It just immediately makes me want to scream. When did you Americans lose the co-ordination between brain and mouth and start using that one out of context? Now it's polluted the UK. I'm having to try and stop my kids from misusing the term. A tsunami is awesome, an earthquake is awesome, the wonders of the universe are awesome.. Being able to make farting noises with your elbow, the latest release from Taylor Swift.. or any other ridiculous use of the word as a space filler exclamation just isn't awesome!

Sorry for hijacking hacking.   I needed to let out steam on this one due to years of keeping it bottled up. Awesome!
