An oilfield term that means you are in a predicament or one heck of a situation. Literally, it refers to the block on a drilling rig. The more lines on the block, the more weight you can lift. If you get in a bind with nine lines on the block, there's not much more you can do.
When she ran off and left me with the kids, she put me in a nine line bind.
