Definition of shiny
- I believe this use of shiny developed on the Colorado College campus, and have no idea if it has reached beyond that. It started out being used to mean "distracting in a good way," its definition has now expanded to include "very good." It is often used in place of other slang words like "cool."
I didn't get my work done because I was distracted by all kinds of shiny people.

- - also made popular by Joss Whedon's TV show Firefly. Ex: "Everything's shiny, Captain." Kalee to Captain Mal, explaining that ship is not about to crash.
