Defamation: Dear RETARDS, PLEASE stop using über as oober or uber. DON'T think it means "cool," "awesome," or "epic;" IT DOESN'T.

Defenition: The word "über" (Not "UBER" or "OOBER") derives from GERMAN (NOT RUSSIAN FOR TARDS) *Literally* means "ABOVE" or "OVER." It is not American for "very," "cool," or "amazing." It is NOT Russian for "Super," although when combined with other german words it appears to mean super (I.E. Über alles {Above/over all} Übermensch {Superman})

Truth: People are jealous that they got called a retarded poser for not knowing what a word meant, so they told EVERYBODY what they thought it was, and now a whopping 50% of the population believes them.

American-German Trans-langual word: The word über came into American culture by a punk band called "California Über Alles," translating from german "California above all." It came from the common german (NOT Nazi) phrase "Deutschland Über Alles" meaning "Germany above all."
The "ü" in über (not uber) or "Ü" in it is as follows:

ü = Alt + 0252
Ü = Alt + 0220

A word which is more-or-less a substitute for the word 'really'. See example.
Instead of "I'm really pissed off"

"I'm uber pissed off!"

It's just plain stupid. If you use this word, you are stupid too.
I'm not stupid so I don't say uber.

British slang

See also: Uber

1) <adjective> Good

2) <prefix> The most superlative

==> The word 'Über' is taken from German and is used in exactly the same way by an English slang speaker as a German speaker would. Über in German literally means 'Over' or 'Above' and is often merged with other German words to emphasise their excellence. e.g. "Übersoldat" or "Over-soldier" literally translated. In English, we would sooner say, "Super-soldier", but the meaning is the same.

Other variations:-


Variant on the spelling of 'Über' with exactly the same meaning only the 'Ü' is replaced with the greek letter 'µ' (Myu).
This is an informal and localised variant and would never be used in formal text.
1) "Aww man, that isn't only Gnarly - that is Über!"

2) "Holy shit, that is Über-cool!"

1+2) "Holy shit! Aww man, that isn't only Gnarly - that is Über-Über!!!"
