Totally intense!

Fellow Anglophones - native and otherwise - this one is just for fun.

What is your favorite intensive expression in colloquial English?

I'm nominating "from Hell" and "on steroids".

(True story: a local political message recently condemned a proposed ballot measure as "a sales tax on steroids". I actually wondered for a moment whether steroids were among the substances now declared legal in Oregon.)
