Clusterfuck (Noun) - a person who is a destroyer of lives. This person is one who must be continuously validated within life and by doing so, he or she will repeatedly seek the acceptance of not only their peers, but complete strangers as well. In doing so, this person will lie, cheat, and talk shit behind others backs, in order to gain the acceptance of another, appease others, or even “show off” untrue acceptance of others. This person will often rip out the hearts of members of the opposite sex or even stab friends in the back in order to gain social gradification.
A tendency of such an individual goes as follows:

(1) Female clusterfucks found within the bar setting, will seek out easy prey men in order to obtain free drinks and let others observe the victim male following her about the bar. To his face she will be nice and flirtatious, but behind his back, she will tell strangers and friends how she is uninterested or creeped out by his presence. There is little known about such behavior, but one may speculate that this is done in order to attract other men, who may follow in the victim male’s lead. Perhaps, to show off to others on “how cool and wanted” she really is. Or even, to feel as if she is wanted, even if she is uninterested.
(2) If is often observed that clusterfucks have little to non self confidence. Confidence is gained through the validation of others. Clusterfucks will often talk shit on the opposite sex, telling false stories of being pursued by the opposite sex. Often, if the individual feels in conversation that one may not favor a particular person, they will tell spread rumors or talk shit on that person, even if that person is a close and long time friend.
(3) It is simple to say that clusterfucks are indecisive. In fact, they may be so indecisive that they are unable to make normal, day-to-day decisions. Apartments or housing of such indivisuals are often found in a mess, because they can not decide when to clean. They may often become flakes, because they are unable to plan out their day or just can not make the decision of what they want to do. They are unable to make big decisions in their careers, schooling, or even picking appropariate boyfriends/girlfriends.
(4) Clusterfucks are often found in a disarray of drama. They continuously have some “huge crisis” within their life that really is not that bad. They will often make choices that will lead to complete chaos and observers may often reconcile with the fact that this person is drama, because they need to feel that there is a crisis within their life in order to feel important to others and themselves.

Military term for an operation in which multiple things have gone wrong. Related to "SNAFU" (Situation Normal, All Fucked Up") and "FUBAR" (Fucked Up Beyond All Repair).

In radio communication or polite conversation (i.e. with a very senior officer with whom you have no prior experience) the term "clusterfuck" will often be replaced by the NATO phonetic acronym "Charlie Foxtrot."
By the time the artillery came in the enemy was already on top of us. It was a total clusterfuck.

Today, however, "clusterfuck" is commonly used to descriptively generalize any situation with a large scale of disarray.

5.
A situation that is totally fucked up, especially as a result of managerial incompetence.

Originally of military origin; a double play on the word "cluster," both evoking multiple fuckups, as used in the term "cluster bomb," and evoking the oak leaf or star "cluster" insignia of the REMF who did the fucking.
Military: "Fuck, I heard Wilkins bought it last night going into that 'headquarters building.' The fucker was shit empty except for the IED that blew him to hell. Took two other guys' legs off and shit. Whose goddamed idea was that whole clusterfuck, anyway?"

Civilian: "That Big Dig is a complete clusterfuck from end to end. Over budget, over due, and now under water."

Incorrect, but sounds like fun: "The three of us got together and clusterfucked all night."
