To be on cruise control means you are detached from the world: you glide through, paying limited or no attention to events which occur around you. You often stare into space. You may daydream, but most of the time you aren't really thinking about anything. You may feel lost even in familiar surroundings.
This can result from the break-up of a relationship, trouble within the family or the death of someone close to you.
It may involve drug use.

The term derives from the cruise control system on a car, which allows a specific speed to be set and regulated automatically by an onboard computer; the driver does not have to use the accelerator pedal
Ever since my brother killed himself, I've been totally out of it: I'm on cruise control.

The vaginal, anal, and oral penetration of a woman while she is jacking off two men. All of the 5 men penetrate their assigned orifice for 6 minutes, and then switch off. The total time for the activity is 30 minutes. Cruise Control is mainly intended to humiliate the woman in question

When a person has so much swagger that they are even able to control the amount they exert to a needle point. If you poses cruise control swag you can put out just enough swag to:

1) make bitches want you
2) make bitches fight over you
3) pull bitches off of other dudes
4) make bitches do things for you without any of the extra fluff needed

People with cruise control swagger have hit such a high level of "pimping" that they no longer even put a thought into what they are doing, it just comes natural.

A person with cruise control swag would also be known as a swag surfer
