Opposites

What's the opposite of 'big up'? Neg down?

And what's the opposite of cool? It can't be hot, because some things that are hot are cool. (Top of any what's hot, what's not list must be the coolest item). So the opposite of cool must be warm, because nothing warm is hot or cool, unless you count getting warm in a quiz. Getting the right answer could be cool, but by then you're hot, not warm.

And what's the opposite of average?

1. Big down. Same problem as upside down, the opposite of which is not downside up but upside up (or downside down).

2. Dull (culturally) or tepid (in temperature).

3. Radical or exteme.

When I rename my blog I'm going to call it 'The opposite of cool.'
