It's a word I use frequently. Depending on the context, it means many things.

1. Terrifying. (A mishap can be shyrkhei)

2. Threateningly skilled or proficient. (A person can be shyrkhei at, say, a sport.)

3. I use it as an exclamation for comic effect for the most part. For example, if someone has said something ridiculous. That ridiculousness is shyrkhei.
