  1. 9/10 – which pleases me as a non-American! The one that I really cannot get my head around is “Sick” which now apparently means completely the opposite of what I had always understood. If somebody described something I had done as sick I would be extremely disappointed, and might even turn violent!

    I wonder why this meaning became attached to the word, and when did it happen?
