If you go to www.dbdebunk.com you will see other horrible examples of trendy jargobabble being bandied about with not a care in the world as to what the words actually mean. I lifted that quote from there, because I think it's brilliant, in that it perfectly exposes the complete ignorance of the speaker.

Reading between the lines from Mr Pascal's site, I think that you will come to realise that many-uns (old, young and middle) don't know shite.
