    Re: cool out

    Context would have been helpful.

    It might mean 'It's not very warm outside'.

    Welcome to the board.

    Do you mean "chill out"?

    You could be right, bhaisahab.

    Like I said, we need context.

    Re: cool out

    Context would have been helpful. Let me explain the meaning of “cool”

    Mandy is cooling her feet in the stream. >>> Cool means to cause something to become slightly colder.

    The children felt hot, so they jumped into the water to cool off >>> cool off means LIKE if a feeling cools, it starts to become less strong.

    The porridge was hot, so the three bears left it to cool down >>> cool down means to become less hot, or to make someone or something become less hot.

    Nearly cool off and cool down have same meaning.
