to be so interested in your own thoughts, your brain stops focusing on the reception from your senses. You only snap out of it when, 1) you realize you zoned out and subsequently "come back into the real world", 2) something happens that catches your attention, like say a major movement in front of your face, or 3) someone says your name.
When the principle came into to talk to us about Jacob running away from school on his longboard

1. a happy mood
2. a derogatory term for a homosexual man or woman, but can have a positive or neutral connotation when used correctly
3. an insult used to describe something that is bad, crappy, or stupid. used by the insecure, homophobic teenagers (around the 13-16 age range) to accentuate the point that they are not gay. not all teenagers use this, though. some of them develop souls earlier than others.

the opposite of a fact; an opinion is Someone's personal judgement on something. Things like quality of TV shows, movies, books, people, bands, etc etc are all opinions. Stupid people often believe that their opinion is a fact and that everyone who disagrees with them is a moron. (I.e. Everyone who is involved in politics) opinions are, by their very nature, not factual, nor false. Things like tv shows movies, books, etc are all subjective mediums, which means their quality differs from person to person based on their opinions.
An opinion would be " George Bush is stupid" or "anime is for kids". A fact would be "George Bush is a human male and former president of the USA" or "anime is a type of animated tv show".
an old thing (movie, joke, etc.) that is so good it stands up to and beats the living fucking shit out of the new things.
