Slugs line up for a free ride at designated spots such as commuter parking lots, street corners, and bus stops where drivers use them to get in high-occupancy lanes to make commuting for the driver faster.
Slugs is reported to come from bus drivers, who were waived off by people at bus stops who were waiting to be picked up by commuters. The "slugs" term was orginally used as the term for a counterfeit coins. In this case it is used for "fake" bus riders, neigher of which pay.
The slugging process works like this. A driver comes up to a line of people going to work or the city and announces his destination to the "caller" who is the person who is at the head of the line. The "caller" then relays the destination information to the slugs behind, to find the persons in the front of the line going to the same place.
There is a slug etiquitte, which includes never giving the driver your name, no eating, no drinking, extremely limited sell phone use, no messing with the music, no messing with the windows, and no heavy pollical, religious debates etc.
Counterfeit coins used in subways and buses are also known as slugs.

Rarely works out, usually only three weeks before Christmas or Easter break to impress the high school girls back home, but when they do they make sure to work their whole body, by whole body I mean biceps and abs (the biceps of the stomach). Prior to this three week period a slug will purchase copious amounts of work-out supplements, or "sups" as they like to call them, to aid in their feeble attempts at acquiring the body of a Greek god.
The weight room sucked tonight because all the slugs were in there getting their annual work out in before spring break.
