A loaded question is a question with a false or questionable presupposition, and it is "loaded" with that presumption.
The question "Have you stopped beating your wife?" is a loaded question that presupposes that you have beaten your wife prior to its asking, as well as that you have a wife. If you are unmarried, or have never beaten your wife, then the question is loaded.

A question that usually requires a long answer. A close relative of stupid question and rhetorical question.
Joan: I have a quick question for you. How do you solve for "x" in this complex differential equation?
The course that an undergraduate mathematics and/or physics major must take at some point in their four year degree program. The purpose of this course is to cognitively bitch slap the shit out of the young and aspiring mathematician until he collapses into a deep, comatose like depression. At this point, the young mathematician begins to question concepts like the number zero, and its relationship to the amount of love received by his/her parents, the amount of attention received from the opposite sex, the amount of intelligence which resides within the capacities of their own mind, etc. Some classical analogues of this course are as follows: "getting stiff armed by Gerome Bettis while receiving a left hook from Tyson; having a homeless person give you his change, because he felt you needed it more; getting dunked on by a kid in a wheelchair; childbirth; Learning that your mother gave birth to you while taking a dump; catching a line drive down center field with your face; running through a gauntlet of ninjas, all of whom can round-house kick sand into glass." and last but not least, "its like taking 100 tabs of ecstasy while journeying to the center of existence"
Steve--"Hey Dave, how do you think you did on that Complex Analysis test?", Dave--"Dude, i got raped.", Steve-- "indeed, was it everything you had hoped for?" , Dave-- "yeah man, and more."
Question made to confuse, or befuddle someone. Can lead to universal implosion, or exploding of one's head.
If Pinocchio says, "My nose will grow now." What happens?
A great Cretan once said; "All Cretans are lyers." Is he lying or telling the truth?
These are examples of the Pinocchio Complex.
Scartball is a sport invented in the late 90s in Boone, North Carolina. The Scartball in question is a Wal-Mart toy-section style fun-ball, usually found in those giant bins with shrek or barbie or something on them. Scartball is played on a tennis (scartball) court. The use of hands is not allowed, although the use of whiskey is encouraged. Games are played to 11, and you must win by 2 points.
Let's head up to the swim complex and bust out some scartball.
Yet another dumb and overcompensating thing white males say to teach other to show how macho, tough and heterosexual they are.
The person using this term ignores the fact that tan lines often look ridiculous and embarrassing for women who have them, because his purpose is to show how manly he is.
For these types of people, tan lines = woman sunbathing = swimsuit = sex. Therefore, an ostentatious display of heterosexuality must occur, in which love of tan lines is boasted about as loud as possible. This is in keeping with this type of male's equating ANYTHING female with wanting to 'fuck' said thing.
This technique ensures that no one questions this type of male's manliness, although he is often hiding an inferiority complex or his homosexuality.
White male: "Fuckin' right, I LOVE tan lines!!"
Passerby: "Why? They kind of look ridiculous and embarrassing...?"
White male: "Tan lines!!! Fuck yeah!! I get laid A LOT!!!"
Passerby: "But you didn't answer my question...?"
White male: "Yeah!!! Tan lines!!! FUCK!!! Pass me another beer!!!"
Also known as Cameronism.
A common disorder among women characterized by an unhealthy attraction to men who are "broken" or "vulnerable". The woman with the complex believes that she can "fix" or heal the man through the power of her love.
Refers to Dr. Allison Cameron, of the television show House M.D. who fell in love and married a man dying of cancer, and later falls in love with the sarcastic, bitter, and crippled Doctor House.
*ALL women have some form of a Cameron Complex. This answers the question of, why women like "bad boys" and musicians - because they are hoping to be able to "fix" them and make them into family men who are stable and secure.
Stacey: He totally opened up to me last night and told me all about his dog dying when he was 6. I think I'm in love.
Alicia: Oh honey...you have a Cameron Complex
