/boh-go's*-tee/ The degree to which something is "bogus" in
the hackish sense of "bad". 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.
