    there are some really smart people on this board, I can't keep up with their intellectual discussions, so I'm gonna fight back by using big words

    so if you've got a really smart-looking word post it here (and the definition) - those smart-arses are gonna feel the wrath of Roget's

    obfuscate- to confuse or make obscure. It boils down to when you realize you are wrong and don't want to admit it, you attempt to simply confuse people about what you have been saying.

    I might be a good idea Darth if you enter the word and let members search for the meaning. That way they will remember it.
