And I HATE very unique! I hate things that are very one of a kind. If unique is now to mean rare (we already have a word for that and it works fine) then we will need a replacement word for the idea unique once conveyed, and unique was perfect, I liked the fact it had a q in it, q may not be unique but it is odd. I might have to hire somebody who said "very unique" because almost everybody does, but my opinion of him would drop a notch.
