an acronym that means Out Of Control, but it is pronounced like it is spelled. most of the time it is when you have spent all day drinking and dont remember the last 5 hours of your day. During this blackout phase you literally lose control of your judgement and say and do whatever you want especially if it is in your worst interest.
