WORD OF THE DAY! 3/15/14!

thousand yard stare [thow-zund-yard-stehr]
1. A phrase coined to describe the empty, blank, unfocused gaze of a battle-weary soldier, but the symptom is also found in and used to describe other victims of trauma.

EX. Check out the newest episode of the Game Grumps's Pokémon Fire Red series that, due to footage being lost, was animated by linzb0t; in which, Egoraptor describes a Lt. Surge's Pikachu being shell-shocked by the Pokémon war described in-game and by fans and having the thousand yard stare. That is perhaps the most adorably tragic thousand yard stare imaginable.
