I am trying to make my mark on the world and would like your help in promoting a new adjective to replace the current one (not sure which is current) and eventually make the list of oldies. What the heck am I talking about you ask??
My contribution to this list is "circular". The seed has been planted in SoCal, NYC, New Jersey, Philly, and MN.
"That is so circular dude!"
"How ya doin' today?" "Great!" "Circular!"
"How's that beer workin' fer ya?" "Circular Dude/ette!"
"How's the security in XP?" "unCircular!"
"How's RichW's spelling?"

what happens when you're asked for a circular saw ?
will that be a circular circular saw ?
Reminds me of "tubular" (which was a surfing phrase popular a few years back).
Might get a bit confusing if your in London trying to purchase a ticket for the Circle Line metro.
Jake, better get out to the Urban Dictionary and document your new "word???". Some are encroaching on your territory.
According Triangular scriptures, the willful betrayal of Triangulist principles. Circularists often refer to the Circle as a liberator from the tyranny of the Triangle. However, it is a lie. For he only wishes to subdue the circularist by giving him false hope that he is a liberator. The Circle only wishes to make all his followers servants to him under oppressive rule.
The triangle doesn't condemn. It sends all who wish to be with the Circle to the Circular kingdom. However, once there, they will be slaves for the Circle for all eternity. And they will have jagged copper rods shoved up their sphincter for the circle's amusement.
Circular reasoning is providing evidence for the validity of an assertion, which assumes the validity of the assertion.
General forms include "A is true because A is true" or "A is true because B is true, and B is true because A is true".
Often used as a mechanism to prevent an assertion from being challenged or questioned, or to "win" a debate by sending it round and round in circles.
Examples of circular reasoning:
"I'm right because I'm right."
"There isn't a problem with the rule, because if everyone obeyed it there wouldn't be a problem."
"Piracy is wrong because it's against the law, and it's against the law because it's wrong."
"X is stupid because he's an idiot."
Success is the ability to go from one failure to another with no loss of enthusiasm.

Jake, you missed "cool" from your list.
Mark, I'd call the Circle Line ("Underground" by the way. "Metro" is in that other country across the Channel) distinctly non-circular (or uncircular) by Jake's definition.
Thanks Peter! How circular of you! I updated the list. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
I think you are missing Radical too, or its shortened form of Rad.
In MA we'd probably call it Circulah.
