I've seen him pull off some ridiculous shots but surely this one takes the biscuit (cookie?)?

I met him one time,  super nice guy.  

Why is the current US fad to add 'super' in front of every adjective? Hear it all the time now on US TV shows.

It’s just American English.  Every dialect will have variation based on location and cultural influences.  No different then spelling Tires with a Y.

I can also tell you he is super tall.  I’m 6ft and he towers above me.  I bet I’m chest height to him.   

Yeah he's 6' 6".

That Hickok45 Guy is even taller.  You don’t realize that on youtube but when you run into at a gun show it’s crazy.

It’s may be a Carolina thing as I hear it often.  But the USA stretch’s 6000 miles so the dialogue changes.  Good example is my Uncle down in New Orleans. He has a French based English that I barley understand. Then  he slips into Cajun English.  Cajun English is the closest to Old inglish and is actually the most proper.  It’s actually made fun of and considered backwoods.    Then out west they have Spanglish.  Up north there English has many Dutch words that aren’t used down south.
