Urban Dictionary: Epiphanot

Epiphanot: An idea that at first seems like an amazing insight (at least to the conceiver) but later turns out to be pointless, mundane, stupid, or incorrect, and often is the root cause of bad decisions. Mostly occurs under the influence of drugs or alcohol.


A fine example of this happened around the campfire awhile back when someone said something really non-sensical and was convinced it would make great poetry.


I tend to get such ideas on lack of sleep, and then I’ll scrawl something down on a notepad about it and when I get up and look it over I realize the idea is just crazy weird and not useful for anything.

It's a cool word, anyway.

I'm pretty zonked already so I'm saving most of my mental ability for post themes I find more engaging in my semi-sleeping state.
