verb: a process in films and games in which a protagonist (hero) is incapacitated and in the face of the antagonist (bad guy) with no hope of any reprieve. Then the protagonist miraculously gets hold of a lethal weapon and kills the antagonist. Word coming from John "Soap" MacTavish of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 1 and 2. He did a soap twice.
Stop soaping! Your starting to seem imortal!

A brand of sneaker with a removable slick plastic plate in the soles, under the arch of the foot. The plate enabled the wearer to grind on rails and edges without the aid of skates or a board. Style-wise, they tended to be pretty chunky looking, similar to skate shoes, but were probably not as comfortible. They were cool for only a few months in 1998-99, but were popular enough to cause concern among parents and schools. Succeeded by Heelys a couple years later, which had heel-mounted weels and were uglier and even less comfortible. Soaps is now a defunct maker.
Haha, my cousin saved up for a vintage pair of Soaps and broke his jaw the first week after he got 'em!
