    Pakistan's Slip Cordon, noun

    Someone who squanders opportunities that others would love to have, but it doesn't matter since another one will come along soon***

    He did a Pakistan's Slip Cordon by oversleeping and missing his HR interview at Google, but Facebook saw his project on GitHub and made him a better offer anyway.

    *** also see Federer's breakpoints

    viriya's cricrate, noun

    A labor of love that may not attract significant appreciation or monetary reward.

    My Ph.D. thesis has become a bit of a viriya's cricrate at this point, as I could easily chuck it and get paid handsomely for doing **** all at some MNC, but I'm gonna do whatever it takes to get this over the line.

    Bevan at 6, noun

    Something that invariably gets you out of a tight spot when you need it the most

    I thought I was totally screwed when I completely lost my way driving in the desert, but my phone GPS fortunately did a Bevan at 6 and got me to a nearby gas station.

    Vettori verb

    to make an admirable contribution to an embarrassing performance in the interests of making said performance marginally less embarrassing.

    "I knew I was gonna fail that paper so pulled an all nighter to Vettori the situation a bit so my parents wouldn't stop paying my rent"

    or

    Vettori noun

    Someone who is astoundingly effective while appearing to do very little.

    "I thought Josh was going to be fired for sure but it turns out he's a total Vettori, get more done that the rest of the department put together in his morning shift."

    Following on from certain discussions in the match thread

    claim Anderson's past it
    , verb

    To make a statement which is quickly demonstrated to be false

    My brother's trying to avoid his ex at the moment, so when she knocked on our door the other day, I told her he was out. Turned out I'd claimed Anderson's past it, as he came out of the living room right behind me at that very moment.

    So ****ing good
    Cricket's moral worldview:

    "Tragedy is when I cut my finger. Comedy is when you fall into an open sewer and die."

    ashwin, verb

    To land yourself in hot water by saying something stupid or careless, then make things worse by attempting to talk your way out of it

    "First Chris got himself in trouble with the management for sending emails making lewd comments to the CEO's secretary, but he really ashwinned when he tried to justify his actions by claiming she'd slept with nearly everyone in the office anyway."
