September 13, 2009 Urban Word of the Day
1. A promotion without a raise or bonus.
2. During the recession of 2009, employers have embarked on a new trend of giving promotions to employees (e.g. by adding more responsibility to their current position or new job title) but not giving the employee any monetary compensation for it (e.g. no raise, no bonus).
My boss gave me a no-motion as I was promoted to VP but still receiving the same pay!
The act of slowly killing yourself by the use of tobacco or drugs. This happens over the years as dangerous substances are put into your body. They slowly kill you, hence slow-motion suicide.
The prof: Does anyone know what someone is doing when they sit outside on their porch smoking cigarettes all the time?
Nick: Killing themselves?
Greg: No dumbass! shit! they are committing slow-motion suicide...jeez....stupid college kids these days
The Prof (thinking to himself): Im failing him, and him, and maybe her, probably him....
The act of taking your hand, with the palm flat and facing downward with fingers extended, and making a circular motion over someone's head while saying "No whammies, no whammies, no whammies."
Tom: "Hey Bob come here!"
Tom: *no whammies, no whammies, no whammies*
|4.||No More Heroes|
One of the few great games for the Nintendo Wii that wasn't licensed by Nintendo.more...
Directed by Suda 51, No More Heroes was originally going to be for the XBox 360, but it was later made for the Wii to make use of the motion-sensing controls.
It follows the story of an otaku and wrestling fan named Travis Touchdown who spends all his money on a beam-katana (similar to a lightsaber from Star Wars) Now broke, he meets up with a mysterious woman named Sylvia Christel, who works for the United Assassins Association (UAA) where he accepts a mission to kill the #11 assasin, Helter Skelter. Now, he works to become the #1 assassin in the UAA by killing the 10 assassins above him. After he takes out an assassin, he has to make enough money to pay the UAA to fight the next assassin.
The game is notable for its over-exaggerated blood and violence, which would make it a perfect target for Jack Thompson if he hadn't been disbarred already. So to all the parents out there, DO NOT BUY THIS GAME FOR YOUNG KIDS!!!
Personally, I consider it a very good game, though I think the open world environment didn't have much thought put into it. It would be nice to be able to talk to people, have more store options, basically make it more realistic. A multiplayer option would've also been a nice touch. Still, I highly recommend it, and to all the PS3 fanboys who believe the Wii's "kiddy" this game is quite the opposite.
A Stay-cation is something you do when your broke. You can't go on a real or proper vacation out of town, so you just stay at home. You take a stay-cation when you get a fake promotion or No-motion ( promotion with no money). You go to Mickey D's or KFC around town and not the Charthouse in Maui. You eat burgers and chicken wings and not prime rib. It's not all that bad because you can catch up on all the "honey do" projects your spouse saved for you through out the year and you don't miss your favorite TV shows.
Hey everyone, I'm celebrating my No-motion by going on a stay-cation right here at home...How nice!
(n.) Not to be confused with the more widely-used term "rim job", a RIM job is any professional position within the technology firm Research In Motion (aka RIM), the makers of the Blackberry.
Person1: "We should all apply for a RIM job!"
Person2: "Hey! I'm not into that sort of thing!"
Person1: "No, I mean RIM is hiring!"
Gracefulness at its best, unexplained beauty, and confusion with no-limit.
A Lacey elegance was captured today around noon at the quad, it was as if a motion picture was being filmed by Spielberg himself.
