It's been interesting reading various threads recently and seeing how often the word "cool" is used to describe a person, an action or a thing. My feeling is that what is cool to one person is totally unimportant to another, for some there's probably no such thing as cool in this context. It may be interesting to see what you think is cool and why, or, who you think is cool and why. Looking back ( a long time ago ) to when I was younger and more easily impressed, the people I thought of as cool were those that - appeared to live life to to the full, always testing where the boundaries were (sometimes stepping over them); not afraid of taking risks; nearly always physically attractive; usually quite laid back about their achievements; highly competitive and frequently winners; often trend setters. Sadly they often didn't stay in the cool zone for too long as "living life to the full" normally caught up with them. Now, several years later, if I think about it, people that I perceive as being cool are those that aren't overly bothered about all of the things that I thought were cool years ago. Having said that some of the most enjoyable/memorable moments in my life happened as a consequence of walking on the wild side as opposed to being totally sensible! What about you lot?
