Awesome typically means "cool" or "excellent" (I'm talkin' Wayen's World here) but, look it up, means, like, awe-inspiring or something to that effect.
Summer: Awesome!
Cohen: Yeah. Comic books. Plastic horses.

Literally means something that is so amazing you have to stare at it.
But its like the best way of saying something is really really cool.
Billy: whoa, how cool is that hat?
Tarquin: It's more than cool, its awesome!

Awesome(ôsm) adjective

1. Inspiring awe
2. Expressing awe
3. Slang: Remarkable, outstanding

Adjective overused as an exclusionary Shibboleth to identify Americans, and certain Canadians (with permission) to differentiate them from mature, educated, English-speaking adults.
If you do not use the word "awesome" eleventy-eight times per hour conversationally you must not be an American (or a permitted Canadian) and will be required to remain in your smelly little village in the Third World evermore (example: Skipton, UK).
