This little known adjective is known to be used withn the scientific community to descibe the climate-induced corruption of the pulsating motion observed with the Australian (N Qld) box jellyfish. Resulting from the far-reaching impacts of climate change, the well-recognized regularity of the pulsing motion has been altered to a mere groubling state. Chironex fleckeri. Note: The use of the word in popular slang is becomming somewhat of a phenomenon in the ocean sweeping subculture of San Diego, California.
I was so off chops, I just barely groubled my ass home.
