 Shocked

I know you love Star Control, but isn't that kind of a derogatory way of saying it?

I didn't do it, I found it.  And the way I understand, if something is "shit" it is bad, but if it is "the shit", it is more awesome than awesome.  Don't know why, that's just the way it is.

I know what it is to be "the shit". <_< And it makes perfect sense. You did read what I said, right? I said: "Isn't that a kind of derogatory way of saying you love Star Control?"

There's a similar thing in Hebrew slang - when something is really awesome, we say it is SONNAmabitch. Go figure. Tongue

SONNAmabitch

This sounds a lot like a certain English word. What does it mean?

That would be because I translated it to English for you guys... Tongue The actual Hebrew is "BENzona" (or "BATzona" for feminine nouns). The stress on the first syllable is key (it is normally on the last one, like in English).
