dugitman: "It will be interesting to see..." makes me cringe. Yeah? How do you know it isnt going to be boring as hell to see? /sorry, pet peavepeeve
Generation_D: One of those opposites things."Oh, thats interesting" -- no it isnt.
To deem something "interesting" is to promise to return to it. It's a judgment that doesn't really say anything, beyond forestalling that judgment, like a (per Ngai) "sticky note" amid an endless wash of data. At its most thoughtful, calling something "interesting" might be an expression of indeterminacy, a placeholder for a future conversation. But more often than not, it's just conversational filler, something dropped in when you don't feel like judging at all.

Mugato: It a sign of being polite yet condescending. Like when someone writes an article for Slate about bullshiat that's entirely too long to read, if the author asked my opinion of it, the reply would be "interesting".
prjindigo: It is because most of you shiats are too stupid to understand there is a maximum level of intelligence that can be forced through a language but that level is so far beyond your comprehension that you say "interesting" when it is NOT interesting.
DaCaptain19: Generation_D: One of those opposites things."Oh, thats interesting" -- no it isnt.Or maybe it is, but you're just a boring puppet.A puppet which apparently doesn't believe in apostrophes.
Balchinian: We use the word "interesting" because all of the truly descriptive and useful words have been deemed politically incorrect or socially insensitive. What you are witnessing is the initial phase of the collapse of the ability of human beings to communicate meaningfully. It is a very dangerous and frightening thing to anyone who has studied the history of human civilizations.
