'brave' is rumoured to have many origins. Some
say it originates
of the words 'bastard
' and 'rave
' whilst others believe in a a more complicated constellation
consisting the words
' and 'safe
'. Either way the common
use and interpretation
of the two meanings does not differ too much
in everyday life. It is an expression to highlight someone's high social value in community adding this extra
bit of hidden meaning for people familiar with this expression. It can be used
as an adjective
or an adverb. In some cases it might even be used
as a noun.
-'Sure bro, braver...'
-'Mick banged that super hot chick last week and than
`snorted 4 grams of cocaine'
-'How safe is that?'
-'That's fucking brave'
-'Collin is a fucking brave individual'
