    I haven’t used it, I tend to say “good grief”.

    Not in my hearing in southern England. Not for some long time, probably several decades. It might not have been in use even in the 1960s. And it was never in universal use by all classes of society.

    Even this elderly Scotswoman hasn't heard it in many, many years.

    No everyone says “amazing”

    to absolutely anything from completely mundane and average to something mind bogglingly fantastic.

    “I had a cheese sandwich for lunch”. Amazing

    “I’ve found a cure for cancer” Amazing.
