- What, for vegetables at low temperature? Seems stupid, and probably isn't common enough to bother with. Equinox ◑ 22:29, 29 July 2012 (UTC)
When I was very young growing up in Utah, we would use this term to describe marbles that were very good shooters. —This comment was unsigned.
I have a recording of the pronunciation and would like to add it, but the page seems to be protected. Can it be added? thumb|Cool Beans —This unsigned comment was added by MostThingsSounds (talk • contribs).
This etymology was removed in a recent edit: Originated in America during the late 1960s. Hits of acid, ludes, and ecstacy were dubbed "cool beans" for their bean-like shape. They were also referred to as "whacky beans" or just "beans." On top of that, there is the homophone connection between the food "chili beans" and "chilly beans", literally meaning "cold beans".
