Not to be confused with the Squaddie two-step, Disco-Leg is a condition that afflicts a person when they suddenly find themselves out of their comfort zone. It is characterized firstly by a slight quaver in one foot, and unless arrested at this stage will travel up the calf until the knee starts to vibrate at approximately 70Hz. Once the shudder has hit the knee it is impossible to stop and will take over the thigh, spread through the hips and down the other leg.

Usually caused by standing at the edge of something extremely high up, for example the Trainasium, although it can be caused by the RSM coming home early from a Mess Meeting while you are upstairs banging his 18 year old daughter.
