stephen378 commented on the word drop-dead
To be used very sparingly or it loses it's meaning. How many girls were drop-dead gorgeous? Maybe one or two per decade. Raquel Welch, Rita Hayworth, Ava Gardner, Audrey Hepburn, Heddy Lamarr, Carmella Bing?

While this page mentions the Greek root of austere, it neglects to say what the word means in Greek, which is relevant. It means "dry."
