Something everyone should learn to use.
Steven took the BMW to get to work, and returned late in the night.
Yet another reference to the toilet bowl which you use for your daily (I hope) cleansing.
Evan: So then she said... (blah blah blah)
Karl: Wait! Hold that thought, I gotta go to the Shit Basket!
To get your point across using childish, misleading and insufferable methods. Trying to convince someone (who by using such tactics one can imagine to be extremely gullible) using an idiotic and obviously deceptive approach. Although mentioned in name, the usage of this term is not limited to AOL alone.
Almost all corporations use AOL tactics to sell their product or service. All are insults to your intelligence.
- Lavalife Flash-based Advertisement:
Number of singles like you on Lavalife... (And the numbers rise from 0 and on in increasing speeds)... 17,384! Sign up NOW!
How many seconds does it take the average person to find a hottie on Lavalife? (numbers displayed are 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8 and 9)... 9! (Of course they fail to mention the fact that it'll take someone days, if not weeks, to drag a hottie out of their home to come and meet a complete stranger)
- Microsoft's Free XBOX Advertisement:
Congratulations! You've just won a FREE XBOX. Click here to claim your prize! (With "certain conditions apply" like completing an offer and having 10 of your friends do the same, written in small characters)
- AOL's "keywords" displayed in movie trailers at the theater. (Ex: A Lord of the Rings trailer is shown, and the keyword search tip is "Lord of the Rings")
And of course who could forget the random "You're our 99872384234th visitor, you've won eleventy billion dollars!"
All are AOL tactics.
Expression used to convey that the person's resources have - or will be - cut off. Originates from Paul Verhoeven's Starship Troopers in which Rico's father cuts him off for being obnoxious and dangerously care-free.
The phrase "That's it! You are cut off!" can also be used. The following are instances in which these 2 expressions can be heard:
Stan: Why isn't the internet working? I need to finish my homework!
Martin: Maybe something's wrong with the modem.
Jennifer: Your mother just disconnected the cable!
Martin: You are cut off young man!!
Steve: Hey John, can you lend me some money?
Mark: You're asking him again? Didn't you already owe him?
John: That's it, you are cut off!
Original Transcript from Starship Troopers. Bill Rico is Johnny's father.
Johnny Rico: I won't quit.
Mr.Bill Rico: I'm telling you, you will. You're not going back, you're going on vacation!
Johnny Rico: I'm not going on vacation! I want to be a citizen. It's my decision.
*Johnny heads toward the door.*
Mr.Bill Rico: You walk out that door you are cut off young man, understand?
Mr.Bill Rico: All right! That's it! You are cut off!
Hero of the Soviet Union!
Captain Vostrikov was the commander of the Soviet submarine K-19. He raced against time to prevent a Chernobyl-like nuclear disaster which threatened not only the lives of his crew, but had the potential to ignite a world war between the super powers.
Captain Polenin: Lieutenant Yashim is the best reactor officer in the navy. He's never been drunk on duty before. We need him Captain, I urge you to reconsider.
Captain Vostrikov: I want this boat out of dry dock. Sea trials begin in 2 weeks.
Captain Polenin: The boat isn't ready Captain. The problem is Moscow. They organize party V.I.P tours, but were stuck with incompetent yard crews and deffective parts.
Captain Vostrikov: Sea trials will begin as schedualed. We deliver, or we drown.
Ex-Commander of the Soviet Submarine K-19. Polenin is under great pressure from the Russian leadership to not only launch on time, but to have the new flagship of the fleet ready for a successful missile test firing to get the attention of the U.S. government. The fact that some systems in the K-19 seem to be faulty and fail on a regular basis is of no concern for the government, and they believe that Captain Polenin has put the safety of his crew over the interests of the Communist Party. Russia, by thus, decides that Capt. Polenin is not fit to command the ship. Since Polenin knows the ship and crew well, he is assigned to stay aboard the K-19 as an executive officer under the command of Captain. Alexi Vostrikov
See Captain Vostrikov
Captain Polenin: "At every stage of this disaster which came within moments of being a far greater disaster, the officers and crew did what had to be done. 7 are now dead. And nobody knows how many more are dying or how fast. These are the men who returned home to be interrogated as if a crime had been commited. Questioned, even when undergoing treatment for radiation poisoning. Locked up and denied access to wives and families. But they and their comrades saved K-19. And maybe, just maybe, they saved all of you as well."
Soviet Brass: "Thank you Capt. Polenian"
Captain Polenin: "One thing more, please."
Soviet Brass: "Thank you-"
Captain Polenin: "No Captain, in the Soviet Navy has ever been faced with such decisions. The fate of the boat, the crew... the fate of the world. All in the balance. (sighs) The Navy is my life, and one thing I know: there can be only one captain of a ship. The burden of command is on his shoulders, and his alone. None of you. None of you has the right to judge Capt. Vostrikov. You weren't there... I was. He was our captain, he was my captain. (Looks over at Captain Vostrikov and stands at attention) And it would be an honor, to sail under his command again."
just doesn't make the cut. Say "loser" the superior way.
There are some occasions when saying loser just doesn't feel right. For example:
Evan: "Makes L figure with left hand"
Karl: Ughh... you dumbass loserstein.
