A measurement (in Ohms) of how much an electrical circuit pushes back when it's pushed.
The phone/phono jack input to an amp is usually a high-impedence circuit. It will not allow a high amount of current to flow into the amp. Woofers on the other hand are low-impedence devices which allow a large current flow from the amp to provide a massive amount of power to the people...unless you push too much and smoke em.

The bounciness of electricity, measured in ohms.
Nobody can define impedance so that anyone can understand.

A theory which states that a universe is created from sheer awesomeness and the awesomeness which creates a universe radiates from someone with sheer awesomeness. The awesomeness obstructs any other force which can potentially create life or the like - Hence, it is called the "IMPEDE Continuum". (FYI, if you don't know, Impede means to obstruct.) In other words, awesomeness created the universe and everything else was created by China. Awesome right?
Person 1: Guess what?
Person 2: What?
Person 1: Totally did something awesome.
Person 2: And that was...?
Person 1: I created this theory about how awesomeness can create a universe. I called it "The IMPEDE Continuum"

<Explains The IMPEDE Continuum>

Person 1: Awesome right?
Person 2: Awesome....

<awkward silence>

Person 2: I wonder what kind of universe just got created...

Condescending geek speak for suggesting that your power cord is unplugged. Used to make people with social lives to feel as though they've been bested by a being whose diet consists primarily of Cheetos and Mountain Dew.
User: My computer won't turn on.

IT Guy: Perhaps it's a PEBKAC error, or your AC cable may be experiencing atmospheric impedance.

User: Atmos...? Ooooh! Heh, very clever. I'll have to share that one with my hot girlfriend.

IT Guy: I'm so lonely.
