I just bumped into a sentence spoken by a native speaker that went as "I think the correlation is very out there."
From the context, I thought he meant the correlation was low/weak. Google Translate, however, says that "out" here means high/strong, which is exactly the opposite.
What does that suppose to mean? Is that a legit English phrasing, or it's merely an informal/casual expression?
Or he was actually saying it like, "the correlation is very out there"? What does "out there" mean in this sentence?
