Since when did Hell become an adjective?
"Dat was hella sick"
by Raddichio February 15, 2005
Term used to indicate personal superiority. When spoken in conversation, the receiving party immediately knows that the person saying the word is of a high class because of that person's Bay Area roots. Thus, if the receiver is not of the same geography and stature, negative emotions arise from envy. A primary example is that of the frustrated SoCal dweller who is frequently subjected to the mighty and humbling presence of Bay Areans.
