bits of plasma, protein, or vitreous that are suspended in the vitreous humor (the gelly substance that fills your eye ball)Though they are normal; most people will get them eventually. They can be congential (from birth) or develop (usually as you get older) They are annoying at first, but most people learn to cope with them. They can be best seen on bright days or while looking at a uniform object, such as the sky.
These floaters are distracting me!

A person without a set group of friends or place to belong to. They drift aAround and meet new people, usually if dating someone. But if that relationship fails, they move onto the next lucky/unlucky clique. Floaters can either work alone or with a partner, but never exist as more than two people. Floaters are usually strange, creative, troubled, and/or have an offbeat sense of humor. Floaters usually don't mind being a floater, although bouts of loneliness may strike at times. A floater is usually single and plays the field.
After breaking up with her boyfriend, Ilona the floater found a new group of friends.


"What group of friends do you sit with?"
"Oh I only sit with my best friend. I'm a floater."

A floater is an individual who cannot pin-point what group they belong to. They walk down the halls and get nods or smiles from anyone in any group. They are normally polite and friendly but shy. A floater generally becomes a floater because of failed friendships not through fights but through "drifting" apart. Hence, the name floater. They don't like sharing their personal business so it is very rare a person will get inside and actually stick around. Floaters are known to be kind of sketchy because of this. But as previously noted, they are generally polite, friendly and due to the enormous amounts of nods, waves and gestures they get in a day, they usually have a great smile.
Bob: Hey I saw *blank* today. Jeez that guy is friends with everyone!
Ted: No, he's just a floater, we used to be friends... I don't even know what happened there...
Bob: But what a great smile.
Ted: That's for sure.

A floater is a social mastermind who wavers between members of one particular clique or between multiple cliques in general, pitting people against one another and leeching out information without seeming like a threat. A perfected floater will appear incredibly trustworthy and neutral and will play both sides, but in reality, floaters look out for themselves and do whatever possible to keep themselves alive in any given scenario.
After playing both sides, floater Janina decided to attend neither Trichelle's nor Mindy's party, so that neither clique queen would be upset with her.

Fecal matter that refuses to be flushed. Variously known as a strong swimmer. Not to be confused with sticktites or gluons

Also, a line of bullshit that cannot be accepted.
We didn't believe him, so we said, "That shit won't flush", "That one's a floater".
