Infinitely More Precise

"Don't use words too big for the subject. Don't say infinitely when you mean very; otherwise you'll have no word left when you want to talk about something really infinite." --C.S. Lewis

Rather like the twinge I feel over the degraded use of "awesome" and "love."

My guess is that when we all find ourselves suspended in outer space with nothing under our feet but the vast cosmos and nothing holding us up but the love of Christ, we probably won't think potato chips and U2 are "awesome" anymore.
