Verb - To say someone's best future counter argument against you prior to them saying it to leave them with nothing to say. This term is used in business/sales/finance/negotiating.

In the last rap battle scene of the movie 8 Mile, B Rabbit (Eminem) states things like "yeah, my mom lives in a trailer park, and yeah I am white trash." His opponent was speechless because Eminem stole all of his counter arguments.
They wanted to have a big meeting to finalize all contractual negotiations. Right out of the gate I made our proposal and then 8 mile'd them on how I know we're a new firm with very little experience, have never worked in their sector before, etc... and while it would be natural to think they could get our price down... we already factored that into the original quote, so the price is the price.

Nov 27 Word of the Day
A stupid person; it refers to the lack of surface area on an individual's brain. The general thought is that the more surface area (wrinkles, creases, etc.) a brain has, the smarter the person is. Conversely, a person with a smooth brain (no wrinkles) has less surface area and would therefore be stupid.
That fucking smooth brain put his shirt on backwards again...

That smooth brain is dumber than a pile of shit.

8 Mile is actually called 8 Mile Road. It is a road in Michigan that travels east and west. It runs from roughly from I-94 all the way to the west side of metro Detroit and beyond.

It is the border line between Detroit and a number of cities such as Warren Eastpointe etc. Detroit is on the south side and the suburbs are on the north. Wayne County is on the south side, while Macomb County is on the north side.

It was called Baseline road and if you continue the road, it would eventually run through the border of Illinois and Wisconsin.

It is very blue collar, but not quite ghetto. There are blacks, whites and trailer trash all along it. It is very wide, with 4 lanes on each side, divided by an island median.

At the east end, the road splits into Vernier and this road travels into the very wealthy Grosse Pointes. Think of GP as Greenwich CT, or Beverly Hills.

Major roads traael through 8 Mile Road. They include Van Dyke, Gratiot, Woodward, Livernois, Schoenherr, and more.
the movie 8 Mile has nothing to do with the road called 8 Mile.

A large, 4+lane semi-highway which runs east-to-west in southeastern Michigan. It is physically the dividing line between Detroit and Warren (in relation to Eminem's movie), as well as a number of other suburbs.

On its easternmost part, 8-Mile road runs through very wealthy areas. A few miles west, you will find the Eastland Center Mall, which is very nice, but almost completely Afro-Centric (lots of stores selling rap clothing, etc.). It's all downhill from there -- it gets better once you hit Southfield, though.

Nobody can doubt that it is a racial divide. Warren, for the most part, is almost completely white, while the Detroit side is predominantly black.

8-Mile is not cool. It's actually sleazy and boring. There's lots of strip clubs and crummy convenience stores, as well as check cashing and furniture rental places.

Warren is not entirely lower-class. Rather, it is a city with many income divides. Basically, the higher the mile number (ie. 10-Mile Road), the better the area. By 12 Mile, it's completely Middle Class, and most of 10-11 Mile is too, with the exception of a few pockets of starter homes and some apartment complexes known for their drug problems.
Once you cross 8 Mile, certain parts of the city look like war zones.
