This is the game given to the habit of some people of pausing TV shows or films mid-flow in order to read text that is displayed on screen.

This phenomenon wasn't very common a couple of decades ago, but the ability to pause a TV show or film and retain crystal clear quality has caused the occurrences of this to rise in number. Often the people pausing the screen will pause in the hopes of learning some extra information about what's going on or maybe see some inside jokes. While sometimes they are right, more often than not the information will add nothing to the experience.

Can be very annoying for people who just want to watch the show.

Used to describe a situation where someone will get out of bed in the middle of the night (despite the title, any time between bedtime and sunrise would be considered 'midnight' in this case) in order to have a quick bite to eat. This could be for any reason; the person may be hungry, or not tired, or just really craving a specific item of food. The snack is usually followed with the person immediately returning to bed.
Bill: You ok man?
Dave: Yeah, just couldn't get to sleep last night. I was really hungry for some reason.
Bill: What did you do?
Dave: Went downstairs, had a midnight snack and went back to bed. Felt better and got to sleep.

A term used to describe when a person suddenly realises what a mistake probably making by asking "What are you doing?" to themselves as if they'd just walked in to witness themselves acting this way.
Tim: I just had a moment of clarity, you know, I woke up. It's like... you know when you have an orgasm on your own? You know, you're sort of lying on the sofa watching some porn movie you bought on a drunken lonely night in Soho, and you're lying there and everything's going really great, you're getting totally turned on by these absurdly graphic images, everything seems so right, and suddenly - phht! Bingo! You wake up. And you're lying there sweating, desperately looking for the tissue which you know is still in your pocket, and the remote control which is somewhere on the floor, and it's like walking in on yourself, you know? It's just like "What're you doing?" That's how I felt tonight feeling my heart miss a beat everytime the door opened. "What the fuck are you doing?"

A term used to describe an instance where a man will attempt to explain something to a woman as if they're talking to a young child. In many cases, what the man is trying to explain is something which the woman already understands... or at least, has a better understanding of than the person who believes it is his duty to school her.
Fiona: Just the other day my boyfriend tried to explain to me the right way to cook and prepare dinner.
Jessica: But... you're a chef!
Fiona: I know, but that didn't matter to him. I had to listen to him mansplaining to me the right way to do it. From a guy who only knows how to nuke ready meals in the microwave.
