microLenat    
/mi:"-kroh-len"-*t/ The unit of {bogosity}, written uL; the
consensus is that this is the largest unit practical for
everyday use. The microLenat, originally invented by David
Jefferson, was promulgated as an attack against noted computer
scientist {Doug Lenat} by a {tenured graduate student} at
{CMU}. Doug had failed the student on an important exam for
giving only "AI is bogus" as his answer to the questions. The
slur is generally considered unmerited, but it has become a
running gag nevertheless. Some of Doug's friends argue that
*of course* a microLenat is bogus, since it is only one
millionth of a Lenat. Others have suggested that the unit
should be redesignated after the grad student, as the
microReid.
