I can understand "Hot". When somebody says "hot" to anybody it means the 2nd person is sexy, stylish, fashioner or sexually arousing. But what does "cool" mean? I can't get any meaning other than "chill" or "cold". So what does it mean when somebody says "looking cool buddy" to somebody or "pretty cool" looking at some stuff?
