Top definition
The conscious disruption of production in a workplace by the employees. What workers do when they can't take it anymore. It can be both an organized effort to change the conditions at work and an individual act to vent frustrations.
Sabotage is a form of organized inefficiency by workers, designed to negatively impact the employer. But the one thing sabotage isn't, is destruction of the machinery of production, or the product itself. The machinery of production and the product of workers' labor belongs to the workers themselves, and destruction of the same would be like burning one's own house down!

I Can't Stand It I Know You Planned It
But I'm Gonna Set It Straight, This Watergate
I Can't Stand Rocking When I'm In Here
Because Your Crystal Ball Ain't So Crystal Clear
So While You Sit Back And Wonder Why
I Got This Fucking Thorn In My Side
Oh My God, It's A Mirage
I'm Tellin' Y'all It's Sabotage

Su,Su,Su, So Listen Up 'Cause You Can't Say Nothin'
You'll Shut Me Down With A Push Of Your Button
But I'm Out And I'm Gone
I'll Tell You Now I Keep It On And On

"Cause What You See You Might Not Get
And We Can Bet So Don't You Get Souped Yet
You're Scheming On A Thing That's A Mirage
I'm Trying To Tell You Now It's Sabotage
Why; Our Backs Are Now Against The Wall
Listen All Of Y'all It's A Sabotage
Listen All Of Y'all It's A Sabotage
Listen All Of Y'all It's A Sabotage

I Can't Stand It, I Know You Planned It
But I'm Gonna Set It Straight This Watergate
I Can't Stand Rockin' When I'm In This Place
Because I Feel Disgrace Because You're All In My Face
But Make No Mistakes And Switch Up My Channel
I'm Buddy Rich When I Fly Off The Handle
What Could It Be, It's A Mirage
You're Scheming On A Thing; That's Sabotage

A website that seems safe enough, but after about 30 seconds has an image pop up that is scary, amusing, or just plain retarded. Also called a screamer (1 and 4) these websites usually have low volume in the beginning or a message for you to turn your speakers up. This is because when the surprise comes it's usually accompanied by a loud noise, like a scream. Usually the page is initially a game or an optical illusion, something the viewer has to focus on for a while.

These websites are for scaring the shit out of and pissing off your friends. The classic one is "Ghost in a picture", where you're supposed to spot a ghost moving in a picture and an "Exorcist" type of face comes up and screams really loudly. There's another, tamer one, where it's supposed to be an optical illusion and then a cartoon man moons you.
Dude, if this game is a sabotage, I'll kick your ass.
