A non-vulgar way of saying the expression "Fat F*ck"; something that is "FF Class" is big, large, extreme, over the top, and/or excessive.

This phrase originated in south Florida while trying to describe a large Mercedes a co-worker had gotten under a lease. The original (paraphrased) dialogue was as follows: "What class Mercedes is that?" and the response was "A Fat F*ck Class Mercedes", which then evolved into the phrase, "an FF-Class Mercedes."

The phrase was made widely public by a YouTube Director {who was involved in describing the aforementioned Mercedes}, with the first usage during the upgrade of a Macintosh G4 computer.

The video is entitled "Macintosh G4 Upgrade (FF-Class)", where usage of the phrase is from time marker 04:26 to 04:33.

In the video, an old Macintosh system is heavily upgraded with excessive and expensive add-ons (specifically, the video card) to make it an "FF-Class System."

The drain from the FF-Class video card was so excessive, that it caused a problem with the power supply where the machine wouldn't even boot!

Popularity of the video helped propagate the phrase within the tech sectors in the US and the United Kingdom.
"The Apple 30 Inch Cinema Display? That is an FF-Class Monitor!"
"That was an FF-Class Chinese Buffet!"
"He just bought her an FF-Class engagement ring."
"I received an FF-Class commission check this month."
"I just installed an FF-Class processor upgrade in my computer."
"I just purchased an FF-Class home entertainment system."

2.
A live, unscheduled webcast (note: webcasts are sometimes referred to as streams) that is initiated with minimal promotional efforts, such as a single Twitter post.

A stealthcast allows for a highly personalized and interactive session with a sparse audience. Participants are typically those individuals that are persistently logged into an IRC chat room associated with a specific webcast (enjoying ongoing chats while also hoping to catch a stealthcast), as well as those who joined based on viewing the minimal promotion, either by polling a website, using a third party program for alerts, or by receiving notifications via their mobile device.

The phrase 'stealthcast' was started by YouTube and uStream content creator, Alfred, who wanted to reciprocate a 'thank you' to those monitoring his IRC chat room with a live webcast while also having a personal, interactive session with a small and selective audience.
Via Twitter: "Stealthcast is now in progress. WATCH: {URL}"

An Uber Stealthcast is a Stealthcast that is launched with absolutely no promotional efforts.

Whereas a Stealthcast will typically have one type of notice, typically a singular post via Twitter, an Uber Stealthcast will have no notice.

Specifically, it is a very low-key webcast, typically catering to a small audience that may be in the IRC chat room associated with a video feed.

The phrase was started by YouTube and uStream content creator, Alfred, who wanted to reciprocate entertaining video content, via a webcast, for those who were tirelessly monitoring his IRC chat room.
"Holy cow, I didn't even know he was doing a Stealthcast, I didn't see a post on Twitter!"
"That's correct, he didn't post one. It's an Uber Stealthcast"

5.
The act of urinating.

While streaming, in a computer and data centric context, indicates the flow of audio and/or video data, an individual who is creating live content on the internet is more properly described as "doing a webcast" versus "streaming."
"I'm streaming right now, hands free."
"Really? You're doing a webcast right now?"
"No, I'm urinating, while I'm talking to you on the phone."
