Bullshit fatigue

Usual Friday morning banter at work talking about the news that some "retired vice-admiral turns down US national security adviser offer".

"How is this even possible?" was my argument, "nobody checked with the guy?"

As I was ranting about how the amount of bullshit going around is bothering me, especially with the recent political landslides and very weird events in countries like Turkey, an esteemed colleague came up with the much needed diagnosis.

"May be you are suffering from bullshit fatigue?"

Spot on. I am suffering from bullshit fatigue...

Bullshit Fatigue:- A neurological condition where bullshit receptors in one's brain becomes over stimulated. Symptoms can vary from
  • Feelings of rage, rather than the customary roll of the eye induced by delivery of false or incomplete information with a blast of absolute conviction (a.k.a. bullshit).
  • Extreme cynicism
  • Weltschmerz
