Mysterious Names For Moves

I was looking around the internet and I’ve come across a situation a couple times….
They name a move.. and then no one has a definition for it.

So does anyone how to do the following three things?

1) China Syndrome
2) Alien Birth Ritual
3) Quasi-Alien Birth Ritual

Thanks to anyone that’s in the know!

    I do not know the other two moves, but I definitely know the "china syndrome" because I was the orginator. I named it after the 1979 movie of that name starring Jane Fonda, Michael Douglas, etc. Okay, here is how the move goes in a couple of easy steps.
    1.) The trick is to set the disc up nicely in front of yourself — not too high. Normally, I like to do one spinning move into an easy pull-out under the leg. It’s the pull-out that becomes your setup of the disc and remember to set it up right in front of you and not too high.
    2.) Now, whichever hand you use to pull the disc, that is the direction you will now spin your body.
    3.) Let’s assume you are spinning your body to the left. Keep your body at a low center of gravity, and when you swing around, the trick is to get both your left leg and right leg to fly just over the disc that is setup in front of you.
    4.) Now, assuming you have got both legs flying nicely over the disc, your body should appear somewhat horizontal, as if you might actually fall on your ass.
    5.) The "china syndrome" is officially completed if you can catch the disc with your right hand just as your 2nd leg flys over the disc. (note: Keep in mind that it would be your left hand catching it here if you were spinning to your right.
    6.) The reason I called this move the "china syndrome" is because, whether you catch it or not, it is very likely you will be landing with some significant force, comparable let’s say to a nuclear reactor that blows up.
    7.) Jim Dodleson, of course, was one of the best at pulling this move off.

    Alien Birth Ritual is comprised a
    Roto Crank to spinning juice pull.
    Arvand 2000 is the same thing but with the ‘off’ leg lifted and without the
    roto. In fact you would spin the opposite way.
    I don’t know if that helped or just caused more confussion.

    China Syndrom is yet another classic example of a move being done
    independently by several people. I did the same move without ever seeing or
    hearing of it in what was probably 1981. Except I called it the "Extraneous"
    since it was essentially a double "indigenous".

    With all due respect to Skippy, this is a move that he and others bit from me when I introduced it in a major tournament. I take it as a huge compliment and there are no hard feelings. Heinfactor
