Among diecast car collectors, the term "Greenlighting" is rapidly catching on. It refers to activities related to the collecting of Greenlight diecast car models. Diehard fans join the "Under-The-Hood" club, a forum for zealous Greenlight enthusiasts which is very laid-back and a fun place for collectors of all types to just hang out and relax. Coined by a UTH member, falcongtho3, an active member of the club (there are over 1300 of us, and growing steadily.)

The act of popping one's collar on a green polo shirt to indicate that sex is wanted or needed. One who greenlights is called a greenlighter
. This act can be done and recieved by either sex toward's either sex, and that is also the risk one takes when popping one's collar. The origin of this trend is unkown, but it quite popular. (A google search of greenlighter will show you the forums and other sites linked to this trend)
Get your collar popped we're greenlighting tonight biatches!"
Ruining a prank started on an internet forum by taking things too far.
"the popped collar sex hoax only lasted 3 days after being revealed as gbs greenlighting"
The usually-unconscious act of turning the object of one's romantic desires into a representation of some sort of ideal - a metaphorical "green light" shining across a bay. Often taken to the point where even if one were to successfully court that person, it would be unsatisfying as they would be humanly incapable of living up to the dreamlike figure they'd been built into.
A: Why won't Jay just talk to her if he likes her so much?
B: He's been totally green-lighting her. Even if he manages it, she's not the person he wants to think she is.
Thought to have been started in the UK by "chavs". A man will wear a green shirt with popped collar to show he is free for sex with anyone, be it a man or woman. Anyone willing to join him needs only to approach him and pop his collar down, claiming sexual rights to him. Started a few years ago and has spread slowly and is still largely unknown however many parent groups consider it dangerous and force strict clothing rules upon their kids as a result, as well as telling others to do the same!
I saw this kid at the club the other night with a green shirt and his collar popped up. An older dude came up to him and popped his collar back down, and then the two headed off towards the bathroom. They was green lighting.
A useful peacock
where pop collared green shirt are used to signify sexual advances. The green lighters do not discriminate
against strait and gay advances as they tend to be more in tune with swingers
man: drinking at a bar
partner looking for sex: do you green light?
man: Yes i do
PLFS: group, gay or straight.
Greenlighting is the wearing of a green shirt with a popped collar, meaning that you are open to sexual advances.
Hey man, let's go greenlighting down at the bar.
A practice whereby any male or female will wear a green polo (or otherwise collared shirt) with the collar up in order to signal readiness for promiscuous anonymous sex. Anyone seeing this signal may pop the collar down of the person wearing the shirt and go on to have sex.
I was greenlighting yesterday when this foxy chick collared me.
