Bizarre human behavior. So named because such behavior is especially common in Florida and Germany. Popularized by Adam Corolla of the Loveline radio program, as callers would phone the show, give an example of bizarre behavior, then Adam and others in the studio would guess whether the event happened in Florida or Germany. Someone with good knoweldge of either location can tell which due to cultural differences between Florida and Germany.
"A 17 year-old was recently arrested for attempting to rob a bank with a potato gun. Florida or Germany?"

noun: The more elevated side of a white-water raft that is either hung up or about to be hung up on a rock.

verb: To lean on the highside of a white-water raft to prevent the other side from being sucked under by the current, which will probably flip the raft.
When the rapid sent our raft out-of-control into a rock, the guide shouted "highside!" and everyone on my side, the far side of the raft from the rock, piled onto the other side.
