British Army slang in use before the Second World War, a sand rat is a whore, hooker or prostitute in a seaside town. They became known as sand rats because, like rats, they only came out after dark and would take their clients down to the beach for sex on the sand.
A British squaddie going on leave might say to his mates, "Right, I've got me 'water wings and calamine' and I'm off to play with the sand rats."
Note Water wings and calamine referred to condoms and barrier cream issued to soldiers to try to reduce the risk of them contracting STD.

This was originally slang used by soldiers in the British Army. It probably dates from the 1920s and was in widespread use during World War II. A sand rat is a whore, hooker or prostitute in a seaside town. These women were not based in a bordello but walked a pavement ‘beat’ (see also pavement fairy) and were known as sand rats because, like rats, they only came out at night and would take their clients down to the beach for sex on the sand.
A British squaddie going on leave would be asked by his mates what he intended doing. His itinerary would almost certainly include the phrase ‘sand ratting’. This meant that he intended to engage the services of a sand rat.

One who posses extreme and uncontrollable anger and is most likely to act it out, violently. Mostly while playing games like Call of Duty where he gets killed so many times by the same "Camper Cunt" that he screams, thus either turning his Xbox off or switching to another game that he knows he will also rage on.
