    weit außen

    Kontext/ Beispiele
    In der Mitte ist der Tisch noch glatt, aber weit außen (am Rand)
    ist er beschädigt.

    I was wondering whether "far out" was a ggod translation, but it
    seems to have the negative meaning of "far-fetched".

    Why don't you say "is damaged at the edges" in this context?

    I really don't think "far out" works in this case. I would understand "far out" to mean "abgelegen, weit entfernt".

    yes, or "the outer edges are somewhat damaged" / "the periphery" = Rand(bereich)

    Maybe I simplified my example too much. In fact didn't want to talk
    about a table. (see new example) If "far out" means "abgelegen, weit entfernt", it would be ok.
    What about the negative meaning of "far out"?

    Kontext/ Beispiele
    "I thought he was weird till I met his brother -- now there's someone who is really far out".
    "Wow, cool! That outfit is really far out"
    "Far out, man!"
    Kommentar
    "far out" often means "strange, weird, cool".

    "far-fetched" is "weit hergeholt", i.e. hardly credible, probably exaggerated.

    Vorschlag...towards the outside (edge)...
    Kommentar
    'far out' is used either in a geographical context, or (obsolete hippy or drug culture) 'far out, man' meaning 'insightful' as opposed to 'right on, man' meaning culturally in sync
