The origin of "awesome" was "something that inspires awe". Today the word has evolved to common slang. The original meaning has become somewhat forgotten; the idea of something being awe-inspiring is now shortened to it just being "awesome".
ie: He had the awesome idea of getting the family together for a much needed road trip.

ie: The Grand Canyon is an awesome sight!

ie: This song is awesome, I am buying it today.

A 'sticking plaster' word used by Americans to cover over the huge gaps in their vocabulary. It is one the three words which make up most American sentances.
The American vocabulary consists of just three words: Omygod, awesome and shit.

5.
An overused adjective intended to denote something as "cool" or "great" but instead winds up meaning "lame." This is actually a reflection of the lameness of person using the word, the degree of which is directly proportionate to difference between the user's perspective of the so-called awesome object / person / situation and that of a reasonably sober, well-informed observer.
"Bono is awesome."
"This pizza is awesome" (when the pizza in question comes from a food court at the airport)

Although it's now used as another word for cool, it literally means something that strucks awe. Something so amazing, one is in awe seeing it. But like I said, nowadays it's used just like cool.
I was struck with awe when I witnessed men landing on the moon. It was awesome.
