"super" as a prefix can fuck off.

OMG, she was super nice... that's super kind of you... I'm super happy about that... super difficult, super great

I'm more than likely guilty of using it myself, and it bothers me. You're not speaking German, you cunt, is what I think shortly afterwards.

Super has been a prefix forever: supersonic, supernatural, superhuman, supercalifragilisticexpialidocious...

It meant something though.

Super, like the work epi, or hyper, was used so mean something. Above, upon, whatever.

Prefixing super in front of an ordinary word is just a lazy way of not using a superlative. (Heh.)

I feel like I use the word "insanely" in the same was a super above, usually just as a synonyn for 'very' and yes, I annoy myself when I do it.
