That brainless state induced in a technology user (usually computer-related) when a more seasoned professional explains things far enough beyond their comprehension that they stop even trying. The minds of users in dummy mode will wander to other topics (i.e. "my bum hurts") and they will follow all but the most obviously counter-intuitive directions without question. Most won't even remember what they were directed to do when they come out of it (usually within half an hour).

Dummy mode can be intentionally induced by throwing together a lot of complex, multiple syllable terms and acronyms that vaguely relate to the situation at hand as a response to a question.

The lowest tier weapon in a classic Doom/Quake-style first person shooter. Named such because all it does is draw attention to the user for somebody better-equipped to pwn.
I just killed somebody with a BFG and this noob still rushed me with a dead man's flare gun.

Standard I Just Made Up. Any fake or unrelated acronym used when bullshitting about computer technology. Usually used to put people in dummy mode.
My boss wanted us to overhaul the network for no reason, so I told him about a bunch of SIJMU compliances that we'd no longer have. He backed off.
