The way that driving has always been done. In order to drive in manual, you control a clutch and a gearshift in addition to gas and brakes. Manual transmissions give you much more information about your car such as its feel, its power, its engine to gear ratios, etc.

Newcomers to manual transmissions often stall out and get frustrated by the addition of extra controls. But if you practice at it a lot, it becomes delightfully challenging, you will feel out of place in an automatic by comparison, and the feeling you get when you drive circles (or donuts) around your friends is totally worth it.
I've been driving in manual transmission for so long, automatic just didn't feel the same. My hand kept reaching for a stick that wasn't there, and I almost hit the emergency brake thinking it was the clutch. I hope automakers keep offering stick-shift models!

Press "Alt-F4" in World of Warcraft to make your mage cast a vanishing spell.
Alt F4 is a vanishing spell! It really works! Try it; it really makes things disappear. I shit you not.

The opposite of cross-eyed. The eyes point away from each other, rather than inward.
Man, that dude is wall-eyed! How does he do that?

The opposite of water off a duck's back. An insult that you allow to cling to you and burn you like hell.
Don't dwell on insults. Research has found that acid off a duck's back yields very unfavorable results for the duck in question.

Can also mean the phenomenon involving a marginally playable game whose physics and controls are so fundamentally broken that it rapes anybody who tries to play it. Sonic The Hedgehog 2006 comes to mind.
Kudos to Pokecapn, Illuminatus Vespucci, Kung Fu Jesus, Medibot, and Kaz, for braving over twenty hours of game rape to bring us all a Let's Play of Sonic 2006, the game that decides for itself whether or not you get to beat it.

Most common method of execution in the United States. Condemned persons are injected with three drugs:

The first drug is a tranquilizer, intended to induce unconsciousness in the condemned.

The second drug induces paralysis, rendering the condemned unable to move or breathe.

The final substance, the killing blow, is potassium chloride; a salt. The saline solution disrupts the conductive flow in the heart muscles, essentially electrically frying the heart muscle and inducing cardiac arrest, killing the condemned.

Although this method is no doubt very effective, it causes undue and excruciating pain in the condemned if the warden misses the vein and the tranquilizer fails to take hold. Supporters of the current method do not seem to realize that prisons can undertake a much easier, much less risky, and much less expensive process by simply overdosing the condemned on the first drug. No pain is felt, and the excessive dose ends the life of the condemned without suffering.
Lethal injection could be a much more humane method of execution if only the government would change the way in which it was done.

Sent on a dirt nap; outfitted with cement shoes; deep-sixed. Pwned in a very gangster-esque manner.
Johnny the Rat thought he could get away from the mob, but Vito caught up to him, and Johnny got Al Capwned!
