Wait, it didn't start out as a spam topic? Cool is an overused late 90's slang, that no longer has any meaning left in it.

Cool is when someone is comfortable and confident with what they're doing(Like, being in their elements). To me, at least.

cool is an attitude that says, look at me while i act like i don't care. and then you stumble around blindly in your sunglasses that are way to dark.

I recognize the definitions being offered here as coming in two basic varieties

1. "The best way to say something is neat-o, awesome, or swell. The phrase "cool" is very relaxed, never goes out of style, and people will never laugh at you for using it, very conveniant for people like me who don't care about what's "in.""

2 " laid back, relaxed, not freaked out, knows what's goin on."

Via urbandictionary.

Etemology:

Q: I was wondering if you can help me figure out the origin of the word cool in the slang sense of the word.

A:The slang sense to which you refer has its roots in the mid-20th century — it was first recorded in writing in the title of an album by the Charlie Parker Quartet: "Cool Blues". This is how the slang form of cool was first used, to refer to a certain restrained or relaxed style of jazz. It was later applied to those who preferred that kind of jazz, especially in the term cool cat. That usage arose in 1948, while Charlie Parker's album was released in 1947. It was also in 1948 that the word acquired its "hip" sense, so that anyone or thing that was cool was the subject of approval. The word has retained that basic sense through the present day.



The usage of cool as a general positive epithet or interjection has been part and parcel of English slang since World War II, and has even been borrowed into other languages, such as French and German. Originally this sense is a development from a Black English usage meaning 'excellent, superlative,' first recorded in written English in the early 1930s.

Cool is when its cold, but not super cold... Like a windy breeze..

But how we all use it, cool is just what you think is interesting, or something that you like. A cool person is someone who someone likes enough to call cool, or their actions is what they define as "cool'

I guess cool is all in perspective, so it doesn't matter whats cool, or whos cool...Because theres always someone out there who will think that you're cool...
