Not me. . . . I was referring to the prior poster, who had never heard the term before. Even if the term doesn't come up in day to day conversation, it's used in American television/media all the time. And Many American TV shows and books have a world wide audience. Thus, it was frankly shocking that a term I had considered universal apparently was not. Interesting to learn.

It reminded me a Star Gate One episode where a scientist was just as excited to discover his original scientific beliefs were found to be wrong.

BTW, that prior poster figured it out simply by reading it in context, so there's that . . .
