"Far Out"

Tuesday, December 06, 2005
Gentle readers,

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to revitalize the phrase "far out". Seriously. "Far out" is way underused in my generation, and it has such a wonderful ring to it. It's like saying "groovy" except you don't automatically sound like Bruce Campbell when you say it.

"Far out" is a gentle phrase, a calm phrase. It says "that's cool" without sounding insincere. "Far out" can be said in monotone without offending anyone. "Far out" is to "that's nice" what "Yo" is to "Hello". "Far out" has attitude and panache where other phrases are becoming flat.

Yes, gentle readers, the time has come. Go forth and pass the "far out" love. When someone tells you something interesting, respond with a "far out." When your boss tells you you're getting promoted (or fired), respond with "far out." When you receive news from the IRS that you no longer have to pay taxes, give them a "far out."

This message will self-destruct in 10 seconds.

Far out.
