Originally used to describe a place in between Heaven and Hell where some souls are thought to be stuck forever, gamers have began using the term to describe a place in a video game where you cannot get out of without shutting the console off. This most frequently occurs in RPGs and may or may not include a glitch.
I was playing Fallout 3 and one of the story characters disappeared. I was stuck in limbo until I shut the game off and tried again.

You get stuck in limbo after defeating the boss in Cheetahmen 2.

When your poop is halfway out/halfway in and it doesn't move at all no matter how hard you try to push it out. It's in a limbo when MOST of the poop is inside and the tip of it is hanging out - that's when it's so hard to push it out.

When your poop is in a limbo (and you can't get it out) you have to wipe your anus a lot because it will be so, uh, shitty. And becareful, as solid poop content might fall on your tissue.
My shit was in a bad state of limbo today. I just couldn't get it out no matter how hard I pushed. Now I think I've got a little bit of poop sticking out in my pants (can't clean it off!).

Also known as 'the Rift Plain' it is the plain of existence between the Material Plain (Life, the universe, everything you feel, see, hear etc.) and the Ethereal Plain (Ghosts, wraiths etc) It is often said that Limbo is where your souls go after death while waiting to be sent to Heaven or Hell. For a soul to pass from Limbo into whichever part of the Ethereal Plain it is headed it must first accept and understand that it has died. Limbo looks exactly the same as the Material Plain, exact copies, changing at the same time in the same way. Souls and ghosts inhabit Limbo and humans and animals inhabit the Material Plain. Although the dimensions are separate they are said to be together as one, the inhabitants of each can not see, hear, feel or interact with each other in any way. Although some people claim to have seen or communicated with ghosts there is no proof supporting it.
"I really hope I don't get stuck in Limbo for long.
