Genius Bar....... none.



Genius.

How often do we hear that term now? I hear it more times in a day on social media sites than the word amazeballs.


I am a genius, a genius I tell you


I am starting to think that the word genius is the most over-used word bandied around at the moment.

(Apart from TWERK. There is even a Twerk It album out now, have you seen it? 
Can I blame Miley "I'm so fucking grown up" Cyrus, for this?)

"Genius

Exceptional intellectual or creative power or other natural ability."

NOT One Direction for parting their hair on the other side, (Not a euphemism) or a footballer scoring a goal, or even Miley ISFGU Cyrus for taking off her clothes and straddling a big ball. (Ok, so this probably WAS a euphemism) 

I'm sick of it.

Totally sick of it.

Come up with a better word, a more descriptive word. (bites tongue) but let's save the word genius for those that really deserve it.

Before we dilute it so much that we start calling X Factor contestants geniuses, just for hitting the right notes, at the right time.


What do you think?

Is genius an over-used word these days?

Who for you IS an actual genius?

Why am I asking lots of questions this early on a Monday morning?

Let me know.

  1. Genius is over used. That's why I like to mix it up, so when something actually is genius; I say GAH-NIGH-US.

  2. Yeah I agree with you completely it's a very over used word and it's completely, annoyingly used often in the wrong context. A very very intelligent person is a genius to me

  3. I think it was since Kanye West decided to declare himself one pretty early on in his career and then South Park's parody of that just made me not want to use the word for a while....It's a shame, I did like saying it
