: : when someone described a thing as "off the chart". What does he try to express?
: : thanks!!
: My opinion is that something is "off the chart" when it is so good (or bad) that it exceeds previous measurements, etc., recorded on a chart.
If something goes off the chart, it far exceeds the normal standards, good or bad, for something.
From Urban Dictionary online:
Off the Chart
Older term... Same definition as Off the Chain.
This party is off the chart.
That girl/guy is off the chart
