This is the word of champs. It signifies the four regions of every man's life. Artificial Playground as a whole represents the video game section, which is also the most dominant. Play represents the sports section. The other two are somewhere in there, so I will let you use your imagination.
I am an Artificial Playground because I love video games and football.

A game that is pretty much a mix of Marco Polo and Tag on a playground.
One player starts by counting to 10 at the bottom of the playground while the other players have to jump around the playground to avoid the person who is "it". The catch is that the "it" person must always have his/her eyes closed. He/she will roam around on the playground trying to tag the others. If someone gets tagged, they are the new "it".
One generally would stay on the playground, but there are occasions when he/she would jump off the playground into the sand to get from one place to another more quickly. If the "it" person hears that person running around, he/she may scream out, "GROUNDIES!". If the person who was running around on the ground gets groundies called on him/her is still on the ground, they become to new "it".
WARNING: Although this is a very fun game, it can be dangerous. Because one is jumping from one obstacle to another, hence, jumping from a slide to monkey bars, some people can really fuck up and miss, causing them to fall and get hurt, die, or even contract AIDS. Have fun playing!
Jim: Damn, im bored.
Bob: Wanna go play groundies?
Jim: That would be swell!
A state of temporary immunity used in playground games. This immunity is initiated by a number of methods, the most common involving sticking your thumbs in the air and simply shouting "Keezees!". Thus, you are exempt from whatever game is being played, and are immune from being picked, "tagged", etc.
*bends down to tie shoe-laces as "it" person approaches*
"Ah'm keezees, by the way! Ye canny tag me!"
*"it" person slopes off dejected, in search of another victim*
An awesome 8th grade playground game when a large group of people stand in and around a 4-square game on the blacktop and furiously launch red playground balls at each other whilst trying to dodge the balls as well.
Eric: Dude, I can't wait for recess so we can play some turd thong.
Robby: For sho!
Crossed fingers that instantly make you immune to being tagged in games like Off Ground Touch, Forty-Forty, Cops and Robbers, Stuck in the mud etc.
Basically a pussy way out of admitting you've been tagged, and are now "it".
People often argue with Queezies, and they're usually only considered legitimate if you've stopped to tie your laces or something else that renders you unable to continue running away from the person who is 'it'.
Some people have different names for this, but as far as I know it's always backed up by having crossed fingers as proof that you're not just shit at the game or really slow.
Person who is 'it:(running towards you, hand outstretched)
You(noticing them): Queezies! (showing your crossed fingers)
Person who is 'it':(grinding to a halt) Ugh. Fine. (runs off towards someone else)
This word is one seemingly created from the ether by Bill Gates minions to describe people who haven't completed puberty but have had considerable access to FPS games. Apparently it's common and parents should look out for it?
"Griefers" are the Internet equivalent of playground bullies, who find fun in embarrassing and pushing around others.
