A term used to describe seeing a moving object not as an individual entity in motion but in serial, momentarily stationary positions. If the observer moves his finger across his field of vision, he not only sees his finger moving as a single object, but also sees the various individual movements needed to make up the complete movement. It is like a slow-motion multiple exposure effect.

Slang for smoking the prescription drug Oxycontin. The drug is smoked by splitting up the pill, usually in fourths, then placing a piece on foil. The pill is then slid slowing down the foil while following it underneath with a lighter. The smoke or gas released is then sucked up with some sort of straw. A black trail is left on the foil where the drug was being lit hence the name "trailing."
"Lets go trail some oxy brah."

"We're trailing the rest of that bottle tonight."
