Possible History of the Term
"halimaw" could be a derivative from the Malay word "harimau", referring to panther-like animals esp. the tiger. It is possible that in olden times the word "harimau" made it's way from Borneo, Bali or Sumatra to what is now the Philippines. The inhabitants of the latter archipelago, not ever having seen a tiger, could have only imagined what sort of creature was being described to them - leading them to conclude that the "harimau" referred to a mythical beast of terrible proportions.— originally posted on halimaw by 188.8.131.52 (talk), moved here by Mglovesfun (talk) 18:56, 29 April 2011 (UTC)
i just think the "Bryan is the shit" is a proper language nor is it necessary. it would be more appropriate to just say "Bryan is brilliant".
