A term used by D-students to rationalize their academic failings.
I might be a sociology major with a 1.5 GPA, but that just means I'm not BOOK smart!
The hands-down absolute BEST fucking thing in the world, of all time, OF ALL TIME!!!!!!!!!!
I could give ten billion examples of hyperbole, but I don't feel like it.
A once-magnificently entertaining website whose heart, soul, and brain simultaneously died on August 25, 2010.
Goodbye oldtime Digg wit, humor, variety, democracy, interesting stories, and thoughtful commentary... hello boredom, ghost towns, corporate content takeover, and recycled Reddit leftovers.
A Japanese car company (more of a truck company, actually) that's been selling stuff in America since 1971. All their early stuff was branded as Chevys and Buicks; Isuzu didn't start using its own name until 1981.
Made semi-decent cars like the I-Mark, Stylus, and Impulse (better known as the Chevy Spectrum and Geo Storm), trucks like the P'up, and SUVs like the Trooper, Rodeo, Amigo, Axiom, and VehiCROSS. Occasionally sold stray clones like the Hombre (Chevy S-10) and Oasis (Honda Odyssey).
Isuzu as we know it died in 2004, the point when its own products vanished and the company was reduced to selling copies of the Chevy TrailBlazer (Isuzu Ascender) and Chevy Colorado (Isuzu i-series), two of the biggest pieces of crap on the market. This torturous product starvation, plus the sudden consumer realization that SUVs are for retards, eventually caught up with Isuzu, which will pack up and leave America in January 2009.
Isuzu's gone, but oh well, we've still got Honda, Toyota, Nissan, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Subaru, and Suzuki.
Short def: a better-looking Toyota Corolla
with a ghetto stereo and even ghettoer resale value.
Long def: A great little econobox that was underrated because of its association with lame Geo
s like the Metro (no relation). Like the Chevy Nova it replaced, the Prizm was a 99% copy of the Corolla, built by the same people at the same plant. Went through three generations (89-92 and 93-97 as a Geo, 98-02 as a Chevy) before being replaced by the Pontiac Vibe.
Drives nice, rides nice, has good power (with 1.8L engine), scores 30 MPG, and might outlive you.
No one knows WTF a Prizm is, so I picked up a used one for $2,000 less than a Corolla. Ignorance is bliss.
The anagram lovers' Tokyo.
Kyoto... Tokyo... ohhh I get it!
A guy who saved NBC Late Night's sorry ass twice in one decade. First time was in 2000 by resurrecting Weekend Update (with much help from Tina Fey), turning it into a fun and clever guy-girl exchange that worked wonders. Second time was in 2009 after the whole Leno-Conan reshuffling clusterfuck didn't work out, leaving Fallon as NBC's only non-fail comedian (out of four) still standing.
Writes jokes that are smart, relevant, and actually funny (unlike Leno). Also unlike Leno, his comedy sketches actually reflect some effort and creativity (i.e. Remix the Clips) instead of being tired ripoffs or just mooching off user input for humor. If there were justice in the world, Fallon would host the Tonight Show and Leno would get bumped to 4:03 AM on Telemundo.
A pretty good impressionist and parody songwriter, too.
Conan at his peak was still the best, but as replacements go, you gotta admit this Jimmy Fallon motherfucker is aiiiiiiite
