    Default What does this mean?

    Ever since I have been using the gears 2 stats website, I have been wondering. What does gib mean.

    Well the highest rated thing on Urban Dictionary claims.. "to cause massive damage to a target, to the point of obliteration.".

    When you make little pieces your enemies, and then you proceed to drink their tears of pain, that's a gib

    Such an amazing answer.

    lol that is brilliant, so poetic!

    How is 'gib' pronounced though - I always say it with a hard g as in general but should it be a soft g as in Mel Gibson?

    Well if it's related to the word 'giblets' (as in guts) then it's pronounced jib-lets

    I thought it was pronounced like "Gibbs" from NCIS for the longest time, but I've heard more and more people saying it like jib

    This is a common fallacy. Sort of like how some people think "Fornication under consent of king" led to a common swear word today.

    As for pronunciation, I think it's regional. I've heard some people swear by "jib," while others think it's silly.

    Personally, I use "gib." Always have.

    Could be. I've seen this topic discussed many times, and it seems there is a wide array of vocab for one shot kill.

    http://translate.google.com/#en/en/gib 'gib'
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gib_%28video_gaming%29

    It's TECHNICALLY jiblet.
    I prefer gib.
    I almost never say giblet, pronounced 'jiblet', and I prefer saying gib/gib'd. I refer to the leftover chunks, as chunks, pieces, body, or corpse.

    I break rules

    I personally use the "jib" pronunciation: http://www.howjsay.com/index.php?word=gib

    But honestly either is acceptable, no matter how you say it, everyone still understands what you were trying to say.

    Why do people keep getting this wrong? This is not where the term originated. Etymology people, learn it.
