1) The unbereable people, places and situations we have to deal with as long as we live. 2)What most people who do drugs are trying to escape from (most of the time they might be right - who could blame them?)

An MTV "reality" show which presents a highly accurate portrayal of what "the real world" is "really" like. Upon college graduation, we're all inevitably thrust into this scary "real world" where a music channel jets us off to an exotic locale and puts us up in an obscenely gorgeous house overlooking an equally obscenely gorgeous beach. And just like in the "real world" we get to experience this standard of living without paying a single dime in rent. I shudder with terror every time I view it because it serves as a constant and painful reminder of what I had to endure in my early 20's when I was living in a Tuscan villa for free. But that which doesn't kill us, makes us stronger.
If you didn't sense the heavy sarcasm in my "Real World" definition, then you most definitely are NOT living in the "Real World".

1. The world outside the Internet.
2. The world outside the education system/academia.
3. The world as experienced by those who are not wealthy and have no friends in high places.
1. Sorry I haven't been in the chatroom lately, the real world got in the way.
2. All those bleedin'-heart intellectuals ain't got no idea 'bout the real world.

Every season of "The Real World" has the same damn characters:

An oxymoronic depiction of seven young adults who are paid to live together and squabble over rediculous subjects. These seven people in no way represent a typical cross-section of their peers.
There is absolutely nothing real about the real world. Wanna see the real world? Try watching a guy work his way through college by surviving off of 25 cent ramen noodles. That's the real world beeyaitch!

A stupid, boring, pointless program on mtv that is on tv all fucking day.
I turned on my tv this morning and the real world was on. I turned on my tv 7 hours later and the real world was still on. I turned on my tv 23 hours later and the real world was still on. I shoot my tv.

title picked by MTV to somehow foist the public into buying the concept that 7 strangers living in a house rent-free for months on end is somehow real.
