    What is it with 'badass' and 'awesome'??

    A mate and I have just watched an American car show (fast'n'loud) and simply lost count of the number of 'badass' and 'awesome' superlatives used throughout the show. Is this the way all Americans talk, or is it a specific TV show language? LOL By the way, what is a 'badass'??

    That's not the way all Americans talk necessarily but they are fairly common expressions. "Awesome" is used like "brilliant" is in the UK. Incidentally, in the the US we use "brilliant" to mean super smart.

    A couple of very over-used words there! We americans tend to overstate how much we like things.
