bogosity /boh-go's*-tee/ /n./ 1. The degree to which
something is bogus. At CMU, 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.
