In quizbowl, it is used to refer to an incorrect early buzz on a tossup. This term comes from the fact that usually one receives a -5 (negative five) point penalty for an incorrect answer when one buzzes in before a tossup has been completely read. However, this term is stilled used when playing on formats in which there is no early buzz penalty. If you hear the entire question, however, you simply "get it wrong" and thus did not commit the sin of negging.
At 2006 PACE NSC (which has no point penalties):
me: "Yeah get this, I negged on that tossup on the movie Munich early on in the question, and said Team America World Police instead."
teammate: "Wtf? How did that happen?"
me: "Well, they mentioned a ferris wheel blowing up in the beginning and something about a montage, and since Montage is an often-used Trey Parker/Matt Stone song, why not buzz?"
A light insult wrapped in the package of a complement. Used by pick-up artists to gain and maintain the attention of women who possess uncommon beauty (9+). These women are immune to standard complements.
The classic neg
pua - "you have beautiful nails, are they real?"
(9+) -"not really"
pua - "Oh, I guess thats still cool"
pua - "that's really cute, your nose wiggles when you speak"
(9+) -"no it doesn't"
pua - "ha ha, there it goes again, sorry, its just really cute"
"I just kept tossing neg after neg at that 10 standing by the bar, and she loved it, she was giving me crazy kino"
neg, bomb is at our spawn
shortened word; comes from negatory or negative
'want to come to the movies?'
'neg, i have other plans'
If you are in a bar and you approach a girl, she basically knows you want to sleep with her. You have to somehow convey that you didn't come for sex. So you are talkative about something even more interesting than her. The only thing from you that can make a 10 notice you is if you show her she doesn't matter to you in the slightest... that is a NEG.
A Neg is a negative remark wrapped in a back-handed compliment.
To Neg a girl you can try:
"You are nearly as tall as me. I like tall girls (LIFT). Are those heels 4 or 5 inches (DROP)?"
YOU: "I don't think we should get to know each other."
YOU: "I think you are just too much of a NICE GIRL for me."
HER: (whatever, it doesn't matter because she will try for you now)
Actually, Definition #2 is a misnomer.
A neg is not a light insult wrapped in a compliment, nor is it being mean for mean's sake.
The real definition of a neg (straight from the horse's mouth): A neg is active disqualification. It shows that you aren't hitting on a particular woman and don't have interest in her *at that particular moment*. You're not being mean, per se, you're telling her that she does not meet your standards of attractiveness.
It isn't a direct comment, either. When you're engaging a group you can "toss it like a pebble" at her or towards her social circle.
Many, many guys use this the wrong way, and end up leaving people with a bad taste in their mouth. To be used by licensed professionals, only.
A standard neg:
"You and I would never get along. We're too similar. You'd never take my sh*t, and I'd never take yours."
A statement or action that briefly disqualifies oneself from being considered a potential suitor. Used by pickup artists on beautiful women to relieve fears of being hit on uncomfortably.
A pickup artist asks his target for a napkin, then blows his nose. He is not offending her, nor insulting her. He is negging her. He certainly is not hitting on her.
A word used when you don't know what word to use.
I just negged on your sisters prohole
