Real life technical terms

I was just watching something about Dalsa origin and they said.

"we have a technical term for that... A butt-load of data"

I think their should be more of these technical terms.

Anyone want to share their own real life "technical terms"

Pounding: An adjective, synonym of extreme or cool.

Casey's Cousin: The enigmatic "cousin" that every annoying person seems to have who has either done everything you have or owns everything you own, only better. You will never actually meet this person.

Nguh: A sound made in the back of the throat that comes out your nose. We use this when we don't want to answer somebody's question.

Niked: We had a friend named Nik who broke everything he touched, only he did it in a very inconspicuous way. Thus any type of inexplicable equipment malfunction is a result of being Niked.


Faster than Cam's Car: In highschool, the fastest car was Cam's, though nobody ever proved this. If someone says they have a fast car, but never drive it, it is "faster than Cam's car." If they have a fast car but we never even SEE it, it is faster than "Mia's" car, but that is a different story.

"R.C.H." the finest measure of engineering tollerance.

Those of you who know what it stands for, send a private email to those who ask.
