this word is used for a specific and awkward position a person is forced into while in the act of falling... the persons face MUST be firmly planted on the ground while at the same time feel the force of forward momentum pulling their legs up and over ones shoulders. (in rare and painful occasions the persons heels can glance off the back of one's own head) this gives the on lookers the image of a perfectly executed scorpion in sting mode...

you can also use scorpion in this term as a verb particularly while trying to insult another person...
example A) the gymnast during her balance beam routine really scorpioned her self on that botched landing.

example B) I got mad at my girlfriends brother, so i told him to go scorpion himself!

Arachnids with lobster-like pincers and tails bearing stingers. Scorpions have existed for a long time (the oldest known fossils are 400 million years old, and some early scorpions were much bigger than those of today - the fossilized Brontoscorpio and Gigantoscorpio are estimated to have been a metre long each in life). Scorpions possess a pair of feather-like forms under their stomachs which they use to 'feel' the ground for vibrations which could tell of nearby predators or prey. When mating, the male scorpion grasps the female by the pincers, deposits a 'package' of sperm onto the ground and then pulls the female over it, so she can lower herself and absorb it through an opening in her body. Despite their fearsome reputation, scorpions are not all dangerous. In fact many, like the Emperor Scorpions from West Africa and Black Forest Scorpions from Asia are harmless. A way of determining as to whether a scorpion may be dangerous is to look at its pincers. Harmless scorpions like Emperors and Black Forests have large strong pincers and relatively small tails. At the other end of the scale are the dreaded Fat-tail Scorpions, which have small, slender pincers and large muscular tails which can drive their deadly stingers through shoes. Scorpions exist in tropical, desert and scrubland environments.
Emperor Scorpions, Redclaw Scorpions, Black Forest Scorpions, Egyptian Gold Scorpions - all harmless, as I can assure you since I've kept them as pets in the past.
I'd just like to mention Spike, the grandmother of my family of Emperor Scorpions (now sadly all deceased). RIP Spike.

A snowboarding term for when a n00b catches his/her toeside edge and faceplants at high speed. As he/she goes down, his/her legs flop backward at the knees and his/her snowboard smashes into his/her back, thereby resembling a scorpion's tail. Painful to experience, amusing to watch.
Haha, look at that gaper scorpion off those rails." "Ooo, that's gotta hurt.

Sexual position where the man holds the girls legs up to waist height, while she balences on her hand. Almost identical to the wheelbarrow.

Popularized by pro skateboarder and satellite radio host, Jason Ellis.
"I was banging my girl doggy and then to her surprise I pulled her legs straight up and went right into the scorpion."
