Google-splaining

 So, two things:

Since I don't have Twitter anymore, I don't have a place to drop short bon mots I think are clever -- if they're not clever, they're not bon mots.

Other thing, Kewl Term from the "It's a Thing" podcast, namely: Google-splaining.  (Punctuation my own, choose your own.)  Somewhat derived from the term man-splaining, which same term annoys the heck out of me. But I digress.

Basically, when someone did a Google search or two ("my own research") and then feels they can explain the details of something to everyone, including people who actually understand the subject, they're Google-splaining.  They may have used any of the search engines, but it's Google-splaining.

I like the term for a number of reasons, especially that when you hear or see it you instantly know what it means.

Didn't ya?
