    Too COOL For School

    The Urban Dictionary Defines "Cool" This Way...
    TOP DEFINITION: "...Cool ... being real. Being themselves and not caring how other people view what they say or do.

    While Collins Online Dictionary Is A Little More Practical...
    3. adjective - "Clothing that is cool is made of thin material so that you do not become too hot in hot weather."

    And "Philosophy Now Magazine" is A Lot More Philosophical!

    "The aesthetics of cool developed mainly as a behavioral attitude practiced by black men in the United States at the time of slavery. Slavery made necessary the cultivation of special defense mechanisms which employed emotional detachment and irony. A cool attitude helped slaves and former slaves to cope with exploitation or simply made it possible to walk the streets at night. ... Cool represents a paradoxical fusion of submission and subversion. It’s a classic case of resistance to authority through creativity and innovation."
