There is nothing new under the sun. When I was a teenager we used cool back then along with fab. Everything was fab. The fab four (the Beatles).

I think 'cool' is one of those words that never became unpopular, it's just been in constant use since the 60's. I'm sure I use it all the time and don't even notice. The only time I ever hear someone use 'fab' is when they're trying to sound like an old hippie.

Is 'fat' from that time as well? I thought it was something started by hip hop culture in the 90's, 'phat party, yo.'
