word of the day: September 29, 2005
K-rad literally means 1000 times rad
, just as a kbyte or kilobyte
refers to around 1000 bytes.
K-rad was made popular in the 1980s by computer hacker circles. The word 'rad' reffered to a radical act performed by a hacker which deserved congratulations.
The term k-rad originated around the same time people started talking in numbers l1k3 th15. This type of language first started apearing on BBS
es and FTP warez

(I have the most leet, k-rad skillz on the net!)
(Kilo Rad) or (cool X 1000)
Derived from Kilo (1000) * rad (see radical
- meaning cool or amazing)
In keeping with computer terminology, its use was popular on dialup bulletin board systems (BBS
es) in the 80s and early 90s, frequented by first and second generation hackers
and computer enthusiasts.
I found this krad demon-dialer on a l33t
Psychotic blonde alter-ego of Hiwatari Satoshi (of the manga D.N. Angel). He may be pure evil, but he's pretty damn hot for a psychopath.
Krad is a Satoshi-molester.
Short for "kilo rad", as in "kilo byte." This is old school 1337 slang, first popularized on BBS's.
