1.
A phenomenon that occurs when you're stopped in your tracks or cease to do something that you used to: popularised in today's culture by Skyrim with the famous phrase "I used to be an adventurer like you, but then I took an arrow to the knee." iterated by guards that pop up in the game. Since Skyrim's release it has found popular use around the interweb, having been parodied thousands of times in youtube videos and comments it has become a meme. The phrase can be applied to any everyday situation by "I used to .... but then I took an arrow to the knee"
"I used to post definitions on urban dictionary, but then I took an arrow to the knee"
