Instances are dungeons and special areas in World of Warcraft which many copies can exist at once. An instance allows many groups of players to traverse the same geography and battle the same enemies at the same time, without interfering with each other. Instances are accessible by a swirling portal. They may be blocked by a locked door which requires a key.
Instances were made as a way so solve a set of related problems which had become obvious. Everyone wants to slay the hardest monsters and get the best loot, but having the whole server at the very same spot at the same time would've crashed the server.
In World of Warcraft you can find instances such as Naxx and BWL.

Instance is very similar to example because it actually means the same thing, so instead of using example all the time try using instance because they both might be different words but with same definitions
"Hey Sam, why do you think that bla bla bla is bla bla bla" , "Because bla bla bla is bla bla bla, like for INSTANCE bla bla bla"

An instance is a place where people go to waste they're lives in an endless circlejerk surrounded by retards. If you really enjoy them you probably hate yourself. If you have not started already then don't. It is an endless pit of pain and regret. Your family will hate you, you will never get a girlfriend and you will probably loose your job.
D00d : Get on warcraft, we are raiding the instance BWL and have been wiping for the last 5 hours.

D00d2 : No.

Instance is what you say usually when something happens where someone asks a question and then figures out the answer themselves or if someone says something dumb.

A phenomenon driven by COVID-19 and the direction for social distancing. Social instancing is the brief contact made due to the desire to be close to someone at least for an instant due to the lack of human contact from shelter in place.
Patrick: Where's Paige?

Cara: I think she is out for a walk. She has been cooped up inside for so long, I think she needed to get out for some social instancing to be close to a few folks she has not seen for the past 3 weeks.

Patrick: I sure hope she is not doing that and she is COVIDgilent on her walk such that she wins the COVID-19 chicken all day. She's also got to watch out for that rando pedo neighbor, as he is celebrating No Pants Month.
