To fuck up in a way that results in a media frenzy. Whether it be figuratively or literally. Derived from Gary Powell, the Apple employee who lost the next-generation iPhone prototype.
Gary powelled when he got drunk at a bar and lost the new iPhone prototype.

The definition of strength, awesomeness, agility. Powells are extremely magestic, they can defeat any enemy, & can overcome any obstacle. Also known as being the best.

Powell is a suburban area in Columbus, Ohio where all the rich bitches there live. It's like the newer, more updated version of Dublin. The people there are hotter than those of Dublin, Hilliard, Worthington, or Westerville, as well as any other suburbs near the area. However, its very reserved and the people there tend to stick to their own "kind". Highly cliquey and self-absorbed stuck-up's will roam the halls of the schools here. Abortion is high, kids mess around. However, if being surrounded by a bunch of super rich and all flashy-glam people is the place for you, go to Powell.
Cam: Is this Powell?
Jake: Of course.
Cam: How can you tell?
Jake: Every chick I've seen so far has given me a boner.

Somewhat like prowling, however solely for the purpose of brown-nosing and climbing the corporate ladder.

Powellers have been known to fully ignore their peers of same rank, take fake phone calls to excuse themself in order to "Powell", and sabotage business meetings for competing employees.

Term may also be used as "On the Powell"
Where has HE been all day we were supposed to be making a presentation?

- I saw him downstairs powelling with three different managers planning a secret dinner

A luxury suburb in North Central Ohio that is the #17 top city to live in the United States, according to CNN Money Magazine. Powell is home to the upscale neighborhoods of The Retreat, The Chase, Chamber's Glenn, Sherbourne Mews, and Wingate Farms, where home prices range from $500,000 to $7,000,000. Powell is home to the world-class Wedgewood Golf and Country Club. The zip code is 43065, and native residents always love returning to the "614," the prestigious area code.
I love Powell for its luxury neighborhoods, glamorous country club and escape from the hustle and bustle of Franklin County and downtown Columbus, Ohio.
