Refers to the false feeling of superiority one gets from correcting someone else by looking something up online, despite the fact the person making the correction did not actually know the answer prior to looking it up. Especially applicable during board games involving trivia.

A: "What is the largest country?"
B: "China."

A: Smugly replies, "It's Russia."
B: "Get off your wikipodium, you didn't know either."
