From the philosophy of best-selling author and spiritualist Eckhart Tolle, a pain-body is the collective manifestation of all the pain, misery, and sorrow a person has ever gone through their entire life, and all the things they inherited from their culture and family history as well. A person's pain-body feeds and strengthens itself by making themselves and others miserable. Tolle suggests that when someone is trying to pick a fight with you, piss you off, or just generally be a nuisance, it's simply their pain-body trying to feed. When someone is constantly on your ass about something, trying desperately to make your life miserable, they're said to have a very dense pain-body.
John: "Man, that Mary-ann is a walking pain-body if I ever saw one. She's been trying to piss me off all day."
Pete: "Then you probably shouldn't have married the bitch, huh?"
An "I have this friend" story, is a story where someone asks for advice about a problem that's really about them, but they're too embarrassed to say so. They're similar to "I know this guy" stories where one person thinks up something funny, cool, gross, weird, or sexy, but essentially untrue, and tries to pass it off as true by framing it as if it happened to someone they supposedly know. "I have this friend" stories are about seeking advice about an embarrassing problem however, not about entertainment.
Janet: "I need your opinion about something."
Mary: "What's up?"
Janet: "Well, I have this friend... She's thinking about cheating on her boyfriend with an old flame who called her up last week. She's not sure what she should do about it."
Mary: "Oh my God, Janet! Chris called you last week!?"
Janet: "It's not about me! It's a friend of mine!"
Mary: "Sure it is. Just make sure Tom doesn't find out."
A movie cliché in which half the cast is killed because one of the characters, in a moment of imminent disaster, went back to save their dog, purse, sentimental trinket, or other such non-essential item. Often used by movie makers to ramp up the tension at crucial moments, but usually it ends up just looking idiotic.
"Look at her. There's a 1000 ft wave heading towards them at 700 miles per hour and she's going back for the dog."
"Okay, the frickin' world's about to end and these idiots are running around with suitcases full of their belongings. Talk about going back for the dog."
An "I know this guy" story is a bullshit story where one person thinks up something funny, cool, gross, weird, or sexy, but essentially untrue, and tries to pass it off as true by framing it as if it happened to someone they supposedly know. It's similar to the "I have this friend" story, where someone asks for advice about a problem that's really about them but they're too embarrassed to say so. "I know this guy" stories are purely about entertainment, however, not about seeking advice.
Jerry: "I know this guy... he caught his sister having sex with their cousin and two friends in their uncle's bed."
Joe: "Sure, Jerry. You *know* this guy. Riiight."
Jerry: "I swear! It's true!"
Joe: "Bullshit. What was the guy's name then?"
Jerry: "Well I don't *know* him, but I heard about it."
Joe: "Sure you did. Sick pervert."
The temporary amnesia you get when texting someone with a question or comment, and having them reply several hours or days, long after you've forgotten what it was you asked them. This also works in chat conversations where the person replies long after you closed the chat window.
Jack: Wanna check out that show on Friday? They got a two for one in the paper today.
Dana (three days later): Sure but I didn't get the paper.
When a character, usually a mentor of some sort, in a movie, novel, comic book, or TV show dies and then comes back as a ghost to continue adding to the story, the same way Obi-Wan did in Star Wars IV.
Just about every Stephen King story has someone pulling an Obi-Wan. Nobody ever stays dead for good. Japanese RPGs too.
