Also known as 'the Rift Plain' it is the plain of existence between the Material Plain (Life, the universe, everything you feel, see, hear etc.) and the Ethereal Plain (Ghosts, wraiths etc) It is often said that Limbo is where your souls go after death while waiting to be sent to Heaven or Hell. For a soul to pass from Limbo into whichever part of the Ethereal Plain it is headed it must first accept and understand that it has died. Limbo looks exactly the same as the Material Plain, exact copies, changing at the same time in the same way. Souls and ghosts inhabit Limbo and humans and animals inhabit the Material Plain. Although the dimensions are separate they are said to be together as one, the inhabitants of each can not see, hear, feel or interact with each other in any way. Although some people claim to have seen or communicated with ghosts there is no proof supporting it.

When your poop is halfway out/halfway in and it doesn't move at all no matter how hard you try to push it out. It's in a limbo when MOST of the poop is inside and the tip of it is hanging out - that's when it's so hard to push it out.

When your poop is in a limbo (and you can't get it out) you have to wipe your anus a lot because it will be so, uh, shitty. And becareful, as solid poop content might fall on your tissue.
My shit was in a bad state of limbo today. I just couldn't get it out no matter how hard I pushed. Now I think I've got a little bit of poop sticking out in my pants (can't clean it off!).

Originally used to describe a place in between Heaven and Hell where some souls are thought to be stuck forever, gamers have began using the term to describe a place in a video game where you cannot get out of without shutting the console off. This most frequently occurs in RPGs and may or may not include a glitch.
I was playing Fallout 3 and one of the story characters disappeared. I was stuck in limbo until I shut the game off and tried again.

Limbo is a puzzle-platform video game and the premiere title of independent Danish game developer Playdead Studios. The game was released in July 2010 on Xbox Live Arcade. Limbo is a 2D sidescroller, incorporating a physics system that governs environmental objects and the player character. The player guides an unnamed boy through dangerous environments and traps as the boy searches for his sister. The developer built the game's puzzles expecting the player to fail before finding the correct solution. Playdead called the style of play "trial and death", and used visually gruesome imagery for the boy's deaths to steer the player from unworkable solutions.

The game is presented primarily in monochromatic black-and-white tones, using lighting, film grain effects and minimal ambient sounds to create an eerie atmosphere often associated with the horror genre. Journalists praised the dark presentation, describing the work as comparable to film noir and German Expressionism. Based on its aesthetics, reviewers classified Limbo as an example of "video game as art".
Yeah, Limbo is amazing.
