A phrase that is popular among high school/college students and other people who live their lives outside of the societal norm that is used upon the realization that they will soon be entering the drab form of existence where they work behind a desk or counter for 40-50 years, pay taxes and bills, drink cheap beer while watching sporting events or movies on the weekends, wait for the next video game system or iphone to come out, plan trips to Europe, and find a significant other that will help them bring other useless fucks into this world to continue this helpless, modern era cycle of chasing down the newest commercialized good while contributing not a single bit of positive productivity to the world in return.
Person 1 - "Man, I graduate soon. I can't believe it."

Person 2 - "No kidding. I don't know what I'm gonna do. Maybe I'll try to become an accountant or work as a manager for some large retail chain. I heard they get good benefits. Time for The Real World, I guess."

Person 1 - "I think I'll just go drown myself in that lake over there. Its not like I'll be doing anything for the next 50 years anyways."

A reality TV show that airs on MTV. A show that started out with some noble goals about diversity, social issues, etc. It has, however, devolved into a mindless homo erotic hot tub party of drunken twenty-somethings. All cast members think they'll never have to work a real job after they've been on the show. Former Real World "stars" wind up broke and being pimped out to "make an appearance" at seedy nightclubs for a few hundred bucks. Totally pathetic.
The continued success of the Real World shocks even the most jaded MTV programming director. "People actually still watch this crap?"

War is immanent. Crime is wide spread. Corruption is law. And money is power. That's just how it all works, as human beings are consumed by there own greed, the world changes along with them. Those who try to call for a change are always struck down by the sword we have come to know as the government. Then again, the majority elect those in government. So it's safe to conclude that those we elect are only elected because we think they will benifit us, but the selfish way we think makes us only think of the benefits of one and not the many. With this type of power looming over us, it's only a matter of time before national calamaty grips this pathetic country.
In the real world, there are no heroes. Only those who benifit the majority,those who benifit from the majority, and those who are layed down by the majority.

What we live in. Touch your desk, punch your keyboard, stare at your monitor, work in your cubicle, drive home in bumper to bumper traffic, eak out a living, try to go out on the weekend with your friends, this is all part of the real world.

A show where 7 strangers are placed in a mansion, with jobs, and free food and alcohol, and are constantly filmed for no other reason other than they are pretty, is not the real world.
Pay your taxes bitch, welcome to the real world.

a show on mtv that has 7 strangers or more correctly 7 sterotypes. I find it odd that they also manage to find one pretty girl, one bitch, one gay guy, one jock that all the girls are afrer, one crazy person, one black person, and one wingman to the jock. If it is done so randomly than why are the same sterotypical people on the show? and also they are going to run out of places. They've already done all the major cities in the states.
Season 77, the real world Ford County, Mississippi
Season, 78 the real world Compton, California

you see my point? show = fake and they will run out of locations eventually.
