Questurbation: The act of asking a question when you don’t care what the answer is but just want to sound intelligent.
Some students, and maybe even some work colleagues engage in questurbation often, and if you know these people, they really don’t care what answer they get, so long as what they asked sounds better than the answer they receive. This might occur more often in places like technological institutes or law schools, or maybe out in the field dealing with more earthly sciences like geology or paleontology. It can sometimes happen on tours of museums, or even at places like the Jack Daniels Distillery in Lynchburg, Tennessee. You might even be one who engages in questurbation to one up on your classmates or co-workers when it comes to presentations or lectures, but don’t let all that brainiac loose at once. Once it gets out, your reputation for being cool might slide towards being nerdy, but this is 2011, and nerds are actually pretty trendy now. So, release the hounds!
One-liner of the Day:
The only difference between the people I’ve dated and Charles Manson is that Manson has the decency to look like a nut case when you first meet him.
