Toss around words such as "phlyarology" and people may think you're talking nonsense, which, in a way, you are. From the Greek phluaros ("silly talk"), phlyarology does indeed mean "talking nonsense" — and a phlyarologist is a person who engages in phlyarology. Though the practice is widespread, the word itself is uncommon. It seems to have been coined in an article about a meeting of clergymen that was published in an English periodical in 1867, possibly never to be used again.

C) Politics

D) Stand-up comedy

Previous answer: A perfect score in a single game of 10-pin bowling is 300.
