Descriptive term for a traffic situation that is so precarious and hideous, it appears as if there are no rules since cars seemingly careen and swerve all over the freeway/highway in near-miss collisions. (Term is derived from 70's skating rink jargon "all skate," wherein all skaters were called to the rink to skate -- and most then did so with absolute lunacy and reckless abandon.)
OMG, I was just caught in an "all skate" on the 5 freeway and almost got ran over by a semi truck!
Dude, it's a total "all skate" -- watch out for that jackass in the Mercedes!!
A phrase indicating that everyone can or must take part in a certain activity. Derived from the 1970's jargon of the inexplicably popular skating rinks.
Original: Rink DJ: "OK, we're gonna put on the BeeGees. Everybody get on on teh floor, it's an all skate!"
Now: Employee One: "Did you get to slide out of the sexual harassment training yesterday?"
Employee Two: "No. It was an all skate."
