Uber (oo-ber)

Uber – adjective, describing another’s ultimate capabilities or immunities. Synonym of epic, godly, unstoppable, juggernaut, freight train, unstoppable force, immovable object, inexorable, indivisible, supernatural, superhuman, supreme.

"Bruno is ubergay & Sasha Baron Cohen is an ubergenius comedian."

"Brüno's uber gay & Sasha Baron Cohen is an ubergenius comedian."

(oo-ber) Origin – Scandanavia – descended directly from the Norse Gods that best represent uber-godhood.

Uber is a term meant to describe the ultimate form of supremacy. Originally derived from Nietzche’s description of the ubermensch, or super-man, the term uber has been completely bastardized in it’s transition to english adjective by its common usage. Blame whomever you’d like for this transformation, but in the end, it won’t matter – uber means super now, so fucking deal.

"I don't think Nietzche would have been too unhappy about an army of these ubermensch."

"I don't think Nietzche would have been too unhappy about an army of these ubermensch."

Typically uber is used to explain a string of actions that seems inconceivably difficult to execute, executed perfectly. The EA Big game “SSX Tricky” solidified uber in the gaming lexicon by letting racers who chained tricks together pull off an ubertrick for major points. Actual German meaning: 0, English bastardization: 1. Since Tricky’s release, and the decline of the SSX franchise – uber has fallen out of the common deathmatch lingo – to be replaced by it’s purely english counterpart – EPIC (Definition to Come).
