How would it be deadly (other then the casting of metal)?

I think "deadly" is a good thing. Like "wicked" and "sick" seem to be these days.

words of exclimation: ( as cronologically as I know) cool bad rad bodacious awesome tubular (old school, surfer/skater) word cool sweet sick / sickness nice! Cool seems to be the staple exclimation word but they all recirculate...... the up and coming word of exclimation is Swag example: Thats pretty swag man........or.......... I'm feelin' swag today

NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, you're totally hip, young and rad, or whatever pedantic little phrases are being boserved these days. *heh...he'll think he's young all hte way to the post office to collect his pension...heh heh heh.* What we really need to worry about is if I start sounding old.

ok guys here it is ..."deadly" in ireland means as you guessed...is cool or rad or having the "Wow" factor...It reads strangely but spoken it is right to my ears..We also use lethal in the same context ..A deadly car means a dodge charger..A deadly album means Ziggy Stardust...A deadly meal means Mussels in white wine...you get it...
