= B =
bogosity /boh-go's*-tee/ n.
1. [orig. CMU, now very
common] The degree to which something is bogus. Bogosity is
measured with a bogometer; in a seminar, when a speaker says
something bogus, a listener might raise his hand and say "My
bogometer just triggered". More extremely, "You just pinned my
bogometer" means you just said or did something so outrageously
bogus that it is off the scale, pinning the bogometer needle at the
highest possible reading (one might also say "You just redlined my
bogometer"). The agreed-upon unit of bogosity is the
microLenat. 2. The potential field generated by a bogon flux; see quantum bogodynamics. See also bogon flux,
bogon filter, bogus.
