DEAD at the prominent lizard!
A successful, generally beautiful, prominent, well-paid model. This is not to be confused with supermodel as powermodels are generally thinner, make less money, and have less staying power. Powermodels include Tyson Beckford, Adriana Lima, Liya Kebede, Gisele Bundchen, Heidi Klum, Gemma Ward, Tyra Banks, Kate Moss, Chritie Brinkley, Twiggy, Iman, Jerry Hall, Rachel Hunter, etc.
Is that girl on the cover of Cosmo a powermodel?
No. She's just a regular model. No one even knows her name.
Tyson Beckford is one of the very few male powermodels.
This term refers to the practice of advertising one's religiousity by wearing significant décolletage and having a cross suspended between the breasts. This is especially effective if the practitioner has either very prominent breasts or is not wearing a bra.
Jessica, who was both very religious and had been embarassed by her rather prominent breasts, made them into a spiritual asset by practicing décolletage ministry. She found it more effective than the John 3:16 signs.
Origin of the word: It stemmed from the word "Prominent."more...
The first time it was notably used was on Jan 20, 2004, when a GDer named Troggard started a namedrop thread. It shortly became a HOT (hang-out thread) called the GPM (Gaia's Prominent Members) in where the higher ranking members of the forum chit-chatted; often excluding the non-prominent members from their chatter. Other HOTs sprang up in the forum; GNPM, GBP, et cetera. When the mods decided the HOT threads were no longer GD material, they moved the HOTs to the Chatterbox. Many of the members still gather in the GPM guild, along with other, newer prominent members.

a spectacular comet that graced our skies in 1996 - 1997. It lead to lots of stupid New Age speculation due to the "prophecy" and angel-encounter end-of-the-millenium bullshit that was going on in near the end of the 20th century. There were cult suicides, and superstitious predictions that did not come true. It was very prominent in the sky in early to mid 1997. Dubbed the "Comet of the Century", Hale-Bopp was a thrill to see and a once in a lifetime event, although you can't tell when the next comet "biggie" may come our way.
Comet Hale-Bopp was discovered by the American astronomers Alan Hale and Thomas Bopp.
