Not really. I haven't gotten tired of hearing it, yet.

I suppose, but it doesn't bother me. It's not as though people are using the word "awesome" that way in research papers or anything.
...at least, I hope they aren't.

It doesn't bother me, sometimes I use it myself.
10 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Monday 4/23/07 - 10:14:51 PM EST (GMT-5)
I'd much rather hear people saying "That's awesome!" all the time than "That's very good!"
10 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Monday 4/23/07 - 10:28:18 PM EST (GMT-5)
I always say awesome!
10 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Monday 4/23/07 - 10:43:22 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yeah, it became that way years ago! But I still say it all the time.
10 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Monday 4/23/07 - 10:45:34 PM EST (GMT-5)
no...awesome is just an awesome word
10 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Monday 4/23/07 - 11:15:52 PM EST (GMT-5)
I thought awesome was an 80's word. Thats pretty cool that something 80's is still in style.
10 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Tuesday 4/24/07 - 4:42:08 PM EST (GMT-5)
^^Gah, EVERYTHING 80's is back in style it seems. I know a lot of it is just people being nostalgic, but I'm really sick of the trend by now.
10 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Tuesday 4/24/07 - 4:43:06 PM EST (GMT-5)
I say it pretty regularly.

That, and "right on".

10 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Tuesday 4/24/07 - 4:54:39 PM EST (GMT-5)
Not at all....in fact it is one of my favorite and most used words.
10 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Tuesday 4/24/07 - 4:56:12 PM EST (GMT-5)
Awesome is such an ugly word.
10 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Tuesday 4/24/07 - 7:48:01 PM EST (GMT-5)
Only if 'cool' is overused as a synonym for 'good', which it is isn't as far as I'm concerned.
I don't have a problem with either of them.
10 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Tuesday 4/24/07 - 9:31:35 PM EST (GMT-5)
No. I use it all the time.

A little bit, but when i say awesome i tend to mean it. I would say (in order from best to worst)

Awesome
Great
Very good
good
OK
meh
bad
rubbish

Something like that

no, I don't think so
9 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Monday 12/17/07 - 9:07:15 AM EST (GMT-5)
No, it's an awesome word, its awesomeness can never be overused.
9 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Tuesday 12/25/07 - 9:27:54 AM EST (GMT-5)
yes but that doesn't stop me from using it most days
9 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Tuesday 12/25/07 - 9:58:39 AM EST (GMT-5)
Well, it *is* a synonym for "very good." I don't think I understand the question.
9 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Wednesday 12/26/07 - 1:24:48 PM EST (GMT-5)
The question is whether or not the word's becoming overused. That is, are people saying 'awesome' way more often than they really should be?

And people, for the love of God, just because you use a word doesn't make it it automatically non-idiotic sounding. You could also pepper your sentences with unnecessary like's and um's, but the fact that it's you doing it wouldn't cancel out the fact that the words are obviously unneeded and overused.

Awesome is awesome...It's fine to use...
9 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Sunday 9/7/08 - 9:49:30 PM EST (GMT-5)
Awesome means "inspiring awe." If you're not awed by something, it's not truly awesome, it's just "cool" or "tight" or "sweet" or "aiight."
9 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Tuesday 9/9/08 - 11:50:39 AM EST (GMT-5)
Certainly, that and 'fantastic'.
9 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Friday 10/17/08 - 4:01:57 AM EST (GMT-5)
Jeepers, yes! But slang tends to do that. Once a new phrase for 'awesome' comes around, we'll all be saying it until it wears out. How rad is that?
