The last big fart right before you have to take a shit. Usually smells worse than the actual shit. Generally this is the last sign that an oncoming shit is inevitable and imminent. A slow, controlled walk to the nearest shitter may be required.

That stupid annoying fucking shit that delays viewing of pleasurable video entertainment via the internet. RealPlayer grossly exploits this atrocity of humanity.

Buffering refers to that period of time that you lost previous to when you suddenly become aware you are now not doing anything. This is your brain trying to load normal function and cognition whilst enhanced or debilitated by mind altering drugs. The time you were buffering will be unbeknown to the bufferer and they will then continue with a new task or indeed the original task.
Guys what was i doing? I seem to have been buffering...I'll rack up the next line then!

Dude, Crissy from accounting is going to be at the bar tonight. I think she likes me, but I'm not sure if I'm into her. Can go with me as my buffer in case she turns out to be a psycho?

Word often used by Irish Travellers to identify someone from the settled community. Travellers traditionally used "country people" but as most Travellers are now living in towns and citys its a bit outdated. Buffer is not an offensive word, but is Traveller slang so you wont find many older Travellers using it.
My fathers a Traveller but my mothers a Buffer
