Most of the definitions here are embarrassingly incorrect; hostile means "antagonistic", "contentious", "combative", "unfriendly", "antisocial", "belligerent", "unsympathetic", "scrappy", "quarrelsome", "disagreeable".

Hostile basically means "of or relating to an enemy"; unfriendly or inhospitable. Marked by a feeling of ill will toward somebody.
Casey Anthony's looked like a marble statue as she watched people take the stand, her face a calm mask which barely hid the hostile spoiled brat beneath.

The gangbangers walked the streets of the slum, their faces angry and hostile as they glanced about.

The homeless man gave me a hostile look as I passed him, but who could blame him? Life on the streets was pretty hostile for anybody.

A word that apparently people think is slang for for something... when its really not. Hostile has simple meanings:

1. characterized by enmity or ill will

2. very unfavorable to life or growth (hostile conditions)
Ignorant Fool: "Dude why did you hook up with that ugly chick, she was hostile!"

Dude: "She may have been ugly, but she wasn't 'hostile' you fucking moron."

Ignorant Fool: "Woah no need to get hostile man."

Hostile: Gasoline

Hostility: Gasolinism



HOSTILE (GASOLINE) SCALE:

0-25%: Premium (A little hostile)

25-50%: Midgrade (Somewhat hostile)

50-75%: Regular (Pretty hostile)

75-100%: Leaded (SERIOUSLY hostile! You don't want Leaded!)

100-up%: JET FUEL! (Aahh, I'm not even gonna go there!)
Diesel powered vehicles are more friendly than Gasoline-powered ones, so that's why someone is "diesel" when they're friendly, yet "gasoline" when they're hostile. Here's why:

Diesel vehicles are known to be better in general than Gasoline-powered ones. They have:


-Longer-lasting engines


-Higher fuel mileage


-Better exhaust scent


-Pleasant sound


-Greater towing capacity


-Greater torque


Whereas Gasoline-powered vehicles:


-Guzzle more fuel


-Emit unpleasant exhaust fumes
...And you get the idea.


Did I also mention that Diesel Fuel costs less to make than Gasoline?
