Seems that only "cool" has withstood the test of time.

@bret
To "shine them [someone] on" meant, depending on the the era and who you hung out with, to ignore (70's) or to deceive (80's or later)

In Jordan junior high, in Burbank, Ca, in the 80s, we said "shine".
This should not be confused with "shine it on" from the 70s.
But I think there's a slight difference between the two.
Shine it on was more like "I think I'll pass".
Shine meant "Screw you, I'm not going to do it."
But maybe someone from the 70s on here knows better?

It was usually spelled "outasite" in Teen magazines, and as a 10 or 11 year-old, it took me forever to figure out it was pronounced Out-a-SIGHT, NOT out-TASS-it (as in opposite). I felt SO dumb when I had that brainwave! And I couldn't figure out what "groovy kinda love" was - grooves, as in a record? It was only "kinda love", so it was groovy, not smooth? What did it MEAN?! But I loved the song anyway.
