Top definition
the phenomenon whereby you wish to do so many constructive things but end up not doing any of them since you can't seem to decide on which (comes from the adage of the donkey that sees two piles of food equidistant to each other but ends up starving to death because he's such an ass)
"Yeah, last summer I wanted to join a softball team, take part in a poker club, paint abstract act, design T-shirts, learn a programming language and cook exotic dishes, but the Buridan's Ass Phenomenon took into effect and I ended up doing nothing because I just had no focus. I am such an ass."
