\grɛgzɪt, grɛksɪt\

A portmanteau of "Greek/Greece" and "exit," the term "Grexit," popularized in May/June of 2015, has been applied to the possible exit of Greece from the European-currency zone, popularly known as the "eurozone" (also "Eurozone," "Euro zone," and "euro zone") because of its heavy debt to EU creditors like Germany.
Greece's recent "no" vote, which means it's rejecting the EU's plan to pull Greece out of debt, might be a victory for Greek sovereignty and democracy, but it's probably going to lead to a Grexit from the eurozone.

A term coined by Terrson to represent a form of Jenga where one removes an article of clothing whenever the tower falls.
It was a fearsome sight indeed after the tower fell for the last time, after that, strip jenga was forever banned in the lounge.

<Terrson> My name shall not go down in history as the guy who codified Strip Jenga.
Guess again, Terrson.
