How and when did "sick" come to mean good?

It's the new "wicked", isn't it? Or the new "cool"?

Hey! Hi UQD. How did it go yesterday? We got as far as U, but got diverted by a pet shop and a nice coffee shop. blush

"Massive" has meant really good in Dublin (well parts of it anyway) for years. A work colleague told me my new-born dd was "bleedin' massive"!! As she was 6lb 5oz I took it to mean she was absolutely gorgeous, which of course she was!

It's funny how "cool" goes in and out of favour. People my age (40) use it, my teenage niece uses it, but I think it went out of fashion a bit between my generation and hers.
