An explanation that makes a discussed situation less plain by complicating what's apparent.

Also describes the process of looking a gift horse in the mouth and naming each tooth, after you bring it home of course. That's appreciation.

Often used by doctors, lawyers, and sociologically sane scientists for profit. (The mad ones do it just for the kicks).

When "It works, just because," is no longer an acceptable explanation due to decreased intimidation and a refusal to settle.
"I've just invented a new word!"
"Could you give me a brief explaination?"
"One day a character with a ballooned ego blew his thumb until his brain burst to which he thought 'Gee, that was fun, I wonder what else I can do? What would Jason do? Hell in a hand basket? Better quit while I'm ahead.'"
"What's the word though?"
"I thought I just explained it to you!"

To tell someone about something, like whats it for, whats it do, how much it costs. That's pretty much it.
I will explain why I always pick the people:
1) Mike
2) Liam
3) Lily
4) Bill
I picked those names since they are nice and short, and they came to my mind first. There, I just explained why I chose those names.

Example:
Mike: What's it like to have a dishwasher? Explain to me why it's so nice to have, and why I should spend my money on one.
Liam: Well, first off, you don't have to hand clean dishes, it does it for you. Also, it usually gets all the stuff off.
Mike: Explain why it's easier than hand washing stuff.
Liam: First off, you just have to put the dishes in, select the settings, start it, and enjoy life for the few hours you have before having to put them away.
Mike: Oh. Sounds like it's pretty easy, I'll get one tomorrow!
