Top definition
Supersymmetry (a spacetime symmetry) is a theory that links gravity to the fundamental forces of nature, through relationships between two basic classes of elementary particles: bosons and fermions.

Bosons have an integer valued spin, while fermions have a half integer spin. Basically, each particle in its own group would have a partner in another, and their spin would differ by a half-integer. If you're wondering, a spin, in this case, is one of two angular momentums that applies to elementary particles, hadrons, and atomic nuclei.
Joe: "Did you know that particle accelerators have been built specifically to study physics past the Standard Model, such as Supersymmetry?"

Bob: "No, actually!"

Also, I'm sorry if that explanation wasn't thorough enough, because I left out a lot to get down to the simple explanation. You can go research it in your freetime, if you wish!

A celebrity free pass is an agreement between you and your significant other that if you meet said celebrity and there is an opportunity to sleep with them, your partner cannot get mad at you for doing so because you had agreed before hand that this person was your celebrity free pass. It is ideal if both of you in the relationship choose a celebrity free pass so that the playing field is even.
Julia met Drake at a bar, and hooked up with him, knowing that her significant other could not be mad at her, because Drake was her celebrity free pass.
