a five

Five by five is a radio communications expression that means 'loud and clear'. One of the fives represents the S units of reception strength. The other five is a rating of the signal clarity. Five by five is a good, clear signal. The radio use of this expression goes back to the 1950s: "'All right, testing, one-two-three-four. . .' 'Five by five, Mr. Holloran!'" (Hunter, Blackboard Jungle, 1954).The more metaphorical meaning, popularized by Faith Lehane from the television show Buffy the Vampire Slayer, wasn't recorded until the 1980s. The use of the word is primarily used in the military, or when discussing something similar.



five by five
Loud and clear. From military erminology. Old radios had two readings. Loudness and clarity rated from 0-5. Thus five by five means literally loud and clear.
Example:
How's my signal?

Five by five.


five by five
Term meaning everything is OK.

The term comes from old radio slang. When communicating over radio, the operator would report the strength and clarity of the signal on a scale of 1 to 5 each. Therefore, if a radio operator described the signal as "five by five" it meant it was both loud and clear.
Example:
I don't use the phrase "five by five" because they use it on Buffy.


five-by-five
Originally an aeronautical term that is the equivalent to the modern "Loud & Clear". In slang usage, it means "great, fine"; popular in New England, it was made famous in "Buffy: the Vampire Slayer" from its overuse by the rogue slayer Faith.
Example:
"No worries, B. That vamp tried to kill us but I got mad skills. We're five-by-five here."


five-for-five
Taking someone to school in the art of foos by scoring on five consecutive shots -- the more variety the better. This is especially effective when done in the context of a booking, or when capped by a money shot.
Example:
Ain't nothing like going five-for-five against Pooch, nearly putting his eye out with the money shot.


Five-Five-Fiving
Verb -- Freaking out or tripping on drugs, usually psychadelic mushrooms or hallucenogens.. Inspired by the song "Five-Five-Five," by Frank Zappa. The instrumentals tend to inspire people to take drugs. Once in a state of inebriation, the maddening guitar riffs of "Five-Five-Five" make Phish look like O'Dweeds compared to the wicked buzz you cop from Frank's Fiver. Which is ironic, because Frank Zappa was very much against drugs.

Also simply referred to as Fiving, rolling with Frank's bunch, or 2F.
Example:
"Yeah, man, I was totally Five-Five-Fiving it last night with Frank's bunch. Had like, fifty mushrooms and some beer, man. It was like getting a year's worth of pussy in four minutes. Uh... what was I talkin' about, man?"

"No way! You were 2F without me, man!? Dude, I so hate you now! Just kididng, brah."
