look up any word, like sex:
 
1.
something that is five to eight is something that is slim, literally (a tie-where it originated), figuratively (chances, the likelihood, etc.), generally unlikely or only slightly likely. created on a fine april day via a misunderstanding in math class regarding fat mays' tie, which is the epitome of five to eight. the term derives from the time 7:55, or five to eight, when the chances of getting to 8 o'clock class in time are very slim/uncertain.
1-dude that tie is five to eight as hell!
2-yeah, its only like an inch wide!

or

1-what are the chances of us getting caught?
2-pretty five to eight, shots is on duty tonight
