Why hasn’t “cool” died out like every other word like it?

  1. the words that died out often came after the word cool, and were pointless because they were just alternatives for the word cool. “rad” just means cool. What is a word older than cool which makes “cool” as used in our society unnecessary? any positive description you pick like “impressive” might go into making something cool, but it’s not a term that can be used interchangeably.

  2. *Cool* has been hanging out like a wallflower in our language waiting for *fire* to come along, so they could be an item.

    At this point in time, a mix tape can be both cool and fire at the same time. I find that inspiring.
