A recent study by the University of Wisconsin shows that the term "amazing" when used to describe others may be less accurate than believed.

The researchers came to this conclusion after following the lives of dozens of girlfriends, boyfriends, service providers and contestants on reality shows. Those who were liberally called "amazing" did relatively little actually to amaze on a day to day basis.

"We just didn't see that much that amazed the researchers" stated Dr. Nils Snowberry, a researcher on the team. He added "Maybe a few "impressed" on occasion and deserved a "good job" or "attaboy!" type congratulatory comment, but no one flew, or lifted anything impossibly heavy, or even memorized lots of hard numbers and recited them real fast. That stuff is amazing. We just didn't see that!"

Another researcher took a sober view and stated "I guess I'll think twice the next time I call my boyfriend "amazing." After all, he's a manager at "Taco Bell."
