Assunto:  what does he mean by that?
 
Mensagem:  (1) You´re ABSOLUTELY right = You´re DEAD right (???)

(2) Are you coming?
     Absolutely [not].

(1) Jazz, you're 100% correct.  In English it can be negative or positive.
(2) Again, you're right. 

Are you coming?
Absolutely.  (Wild horses could not keep me away.  Of course I am coming.)
Absolutely not.  (No way!  I'd rather die first!)

CRS, thanks for the laugh.  Needed it!  Absolutely needed it.
