I noticed the word great being used by world leaders, dictators, countries, before disasters, used in sarcasm, and I just wonder where it originates from, what was the original "great"? This is just great, great divide, great pyramid, great lakes, Great Brittan, Peter the Great, great risk, great quake, you look great, I know more, please add yours to the list
