How cool is cool?



After a break, we're back with a short and uncontroversial post. More to come shortly!

In a number of languages "cool" is a positive word. After all, what's not to like about cool? Hot can be good, but it can also be hard work. Cold is, well, cold.

But while cool is usually OK, our old friend context is everything. On the one hand: "hey, we're cool" is good to hear. On the other: "they were cool about the proposal" is quite unwelcome. Even more subtle: "they were cool with the proposal" is arguably positive again. Difficult, but if we check the context, there shouldn't be a problem.
