Then you should add 'weird' also. Breaks all the rules, and we know that is cool.

chilly, frigid, frosty, refreshing, arctic, biting, chill, nipping, algid, and winter.

Most words that end with an "a" or "z". 

Also most words that use the letter "x" or "q". 

"X" being the coolest letter of all.
