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,
