A temporary mental disassociation triggered by the extreme emotional distress caused by the tremendous urgency to defecate.
I had to shit so bad that I had a brown out. I don't remember anything between the parking lot and the stall.

If I get another brown out, I'm going to firebomb the electric company.

When the power doesn't go out, but it fades for a second and maybe blinks.
I had to unplug some appliances because I didn't want them to be damaged by a power surge after the brown out.
