The act of hallucinating without the use of psychoactive drugs, such as LSD or acid. This requires one ping pong ball, a radio with headphone jack, and a red lightbulb. To hallucinate, cut the ping pong ball in half and tape halves over eyes. Then turn the radio to a white noise (static) station and put on headphones. Finally, stare into red lightbulb and wait for about half an hour. Soon, you will start to hallucinate.

A cruddy singer. Her voice is always fixed with autotune and sounds terrible live. A lady gaga wanna be. All she sings about is beer, getting drunk, and acting like a slut. She is trashing the minds of thousands of American children with her no good, shitty music. Her parents must be so proud...

Girl: "Nooooo she's AMAZING!"

Sometimes called 'A-town'.

Mostly inhabited by redneck townsfolk, farmers and rich italian families that run most of the local businesses around town.
On any given weekday all of the stores close after 8:00pm, except for the 24 hour gas station, which seems to be a popular hangout for the younger rednecks. Popular local activities include staring at the non-locals and driving like a fucking moron. If you're into nightlife the local pubs offer live DJ's that play all of your favorite radio songs every third Friday of the month. The pubs make a special effort to stay open until 1:30 or 2:00AM to cater for this event.

It is an emergency procedure word used internationally as a distress signal in voice procedure radio communications. It derives from the French venez m'aider, meaning "come help me".
It is used to signal a life-threatening emergency primarily by mariners and aviators but in some countries local organisations such as police forces, firefighters, and transportation organizations may also use the term. The call is always given three times in a row ("Mayday Mayday Mayday") to prevent mistaking it for some similar-sounding phrase under noisy conditions, and to distinguish an actual Mayday call from a message about a Mayday call.
A mayday situation is one in which a vessel, aircraft, vehicle, or person is in grave and imminent danger and requires immediate assistance. Examples of "grave and imminent danger" in which a mayday call would be appropriate include fire, explosion or sinking.
Civilian aircraft in the UK and Europe are encouraged to use the following format:
MAYDAY, MAYDAY, MAYDAY; Name of station addressed; Aircraft callsign; Nature of emergency; Intentions of the pilot; Present position (including Altitude or Flight level); Pilot's qualifications; Any other useful information (number of souls on board.)
MAYDAY, MAYDAY, MAYDAY, this is NONSUCH, NONSUCH, NONSUCH. MAYDAY, NONSUCH. Position 54 25 North 016 33 West. My boat is on fire and sinking. I require immediate assistance. Four people on board, are taking a lifeboat. MAYDAY NONSUCH, OVER."
