What does SOL stand for?

S*** out of luck


SOL stands for "s*** outta luck." If you're SOL, it means you're having a very bad day, and things are likely about to get even worse.

Specifically, being SOL means you're out of good, viable options to solve a problem (or problems) you're facing. But don't worry - you'll get through this! After all, everyone here is rooting for you.
