  4. [People say barely as an expression to mean. "Not at all." Basically meaning "Not even close" . People say "barely". This expression comes from a chinese-european mexican/canadian man named Bare Lee.. He invented this after his name... Bare Lee. Into Barely. This inspiration of a miracle came back from 2002, As Bare Lee was a freshman in high school he had troubles findin his classes. So at first period he found a classroom misthought of as math. But it was really french. So as he said "I FINALLY FOUND MATH CLASS" a inspiring bully exclaimed "BARELY" and Bare lee thought. Thats a good word to say. It adds my name combined to mean a phrase that defines not at all. And soon Bare Lee died and his legacy was reminded as the man who invented the word and phase Barely.]
