It's not that people here are unfriendly, they will hold the door for you and wave you into traffic and stuff like that, it's that everything is maddeningly impersonal. The attitude is "have a nice day, somewhere else". It's easy to get along but making friends is almost impossible. People will say they want to hang out with you sometime and look at you like a freak when you actually suggest something. People enthusiastically say they are coming to a party then don't show up. People are flaky and hard to pin down. Girls lead you on for weeks and snub you with no explanation. People are insincere. Norms of social interaction don't apply here. Most people don't like or dislike you, they're totally indifferent. Every interaction will be maddeningly superficial.
I was a popular guy at my highschool in another state. I had plenty of friends, dated regularly, and was outgoing enough to make new friends easily at parties. I went to college in Seattle and didn't make a single friend for over six months. I would go weeks with nothing more than idle chit-chat. Friends from highschool less popular than me were off having the time of their lives in other schools. The next year (my sophmore year) I was in a dorm with a bunch of freshman athletes from other states. We hit it off instantly and became close friends. We threw our own parties, we helped eachother with schoolwork, we would hang out and just enjoy the company, I dated one of the hotter girls. It was a normal college experience, and only because there were enough people from out of town who actually wanted to make friends.
Every. Single. One. of the people I know who re-located here from another state will tell you it's hard to make friends here. They may not know the term "Seattle Freeze" but they well know the phenomenon. The only people who will deny it grew up here, and even many of them acknowledge it.
The massive proliferation and spamming of facebook social plugins across seemingly every web page on the internet over the last few years, allowing them to track user's every move across the web. Also refers to the shameless promotion by more and more people and companies on and offline trying to suggest that you must join the swarm and get on facebook. This is the crowd of people bitching at you more every year for not having a facebook.
Both phenomena are reminiscent of the swarm of zerglings flooding into your base that constitutes the standard zerg rush
in the game of Starcraft.
ex 1: What the hell? why do I need a facebook account to log in everywhere now? Goddam Zuckerberg Zerg Rush.
Croud of sheeple: "OMG U NEED A FACEBOOOK, LIKE RIGHT NOW!! HOW DO U LIVE WITHOUT ONE?!!1!"
Me: "What is this, the Zuckerberg Zerg Rush? Get his cock out of your mouths already and leave me alone."
A counsel made up of (ass)clowns. Whenever a governing body that calls itself a "-counsel" makes a decision that's stupid as shit, it becomes a clownsel.
A good way to refer to a counsel that thinks it has authority to govern, but has proven otherwise through its ineptitude and/or corruption.
High school student1: The goddam student clownsel approved the school administration's idea of breath testing all students for alcohol when they enter dances.
Student 2: What the hell? I thought those ass clowns were supposed to represent our interests, not service the dicks of the admin on command.
Student1: Yeah, guess now we'll have to do drugs first instead of drinking. I was hoping to just get by with beer, but the clownsel forced my hand.
Homeowner: Three members of the city clownsel just got busted for embezzling our tax dollars, I always knew they were a bunch of no good weasels.
College student 1: Did you hear the student clownsel just voted to host a homeless tent city in our parking lot and quad?
student 2: WTF? I paid a shitload of money for my parking spot this quarter and now they get to shit there for free and my car's gonna get trashed.
Student 1: Well I guess the only people who would want to be members of the clownsel are pompous do-gooders with no concept of reality just trying to boost their resume, so it's not too surprising.
Student 3: The president will just veto it when all the parents complain, a clownsel vote doesn't mean shit, they have no real power anyway.
