Aug 9 Word of the Day
A term coined by Terrson to represent a form of Jenga where one removes an article of clothing whenever the tower falls.
It was a fearsome sight indeed after the tower fell for the last time, after that, strip jenga was forever banned in the lounge.

<Terrson> My name shall not go down in history as the guy who codified Strip Jenga.
Guess again, Terrson.

A kickass Canadian Indie band. Emily Haines (the lead singer) redefines awesome. Finally, the Canadians made something Americans will love.
Randy: "I just bought Metric's newest album. I love it."
Paul: "Yea, they suck! Listen to some good music like Green Day, John Mayer, or Linkin Park!"

Randy then proceeds to push Paul's lifeless body into the Hudson.

Horrible band consisting of a bunch of retards. 60% of the reason they suck
is because they suck dicks on the side to pay rent, the other 40% is that they're Canadian. Not saying all Canadians suck, just the semi-sucessful ones.
Char: Oh my god! Metric rocked!
Ben: No, Metric is gay, besides, I hear they suck live.

Chill, euphoric, awesome. Better than the usual. Something similar to the feeling of an awesome rave.

Probably drawn from the idea that the metric system is "better" than other systems.
A$AP Rocky: How was that young party last night?

Lil Wayne: Yo dawggg, that shit was metric AF.

Call center slang. This word encompasses the statistics that are taken on call center agents to determine their worth. Usually includes average handle time (AHT), wrap, hold time and a few other basic metrics as well as a few 'spin' metrics added by the client to give the client a feeling of control.
They said Rob got canned because of poor metrics, but we all know the real reason.
