Dic: as good as it gets (grammar)


자료: http://english.stackexchange.com/questions/110770/as-good-as-it-gets-grammar


※ 발췌/메모 (excerpts/notes)

as good as it gets
as good as it (ever) gets
as good as it can ever be
the maximal state it can ever achieve or obtain
as anything as it gets
He is as tough as they come

CF. "as stupid as he gets" does not mean the stupidest he could ever be; it means "the stupidest we know him ever to have been," but it doesn't preclude him being more stupid at some point.
