== Was the Rampart scandal investigation "massive"? ==
In attempt to address the question of the use of the word "massive" and its connotation, two simple steps were taken:
1) search wikipedia for "massive",and
2) search google web, and google images for "massive".
Results of the searches are presented below.
Conclusion (tentative): the use of the term "massive" has diverged in recent years. Younger people may associate it primarily with fictional video games - eg - "massive attack", and with trendy music - as a common hyperbole. Older, techno-oriented persons, may see it as part of standard professional parlance as in "massive coronary".
