The unit of bogosity. Abbreviated mL in ASCII. Consensus is that this is the largest unit practical for everyday use. The microLenat, originally invented by David Jefferson, was promulgated as a ribbing of the famous computer scientist Doug Lenat by a tenured graduate student at CMU. Lenat had failed the student on an important exam because the student gave only "AI is bogus" as his answer to the questions.
While watching a demonstration of the Cyc expert system, my bogometer redlined and then exploded. In its place was a hole in the space-time continuum caused by an epic excess of bogosity, which is believed to have measured 1,000,000 microLenats.

The degree to which something is bogus. 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.
Bush's claim that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction (WMD) pegged my bogometer at 1000 microLenats, producing bogosity of Biblical proportions.

A man in a suit attempted to con me, but my bogometer exposed his bogosity and I escaped without being ripped off.
