Please try to work this newly coined word into your conversation and post the results here. I think both definitions have promise, so I think we should allow both. Please feel free to offer refinements to the definition and/or syntax. to Broder: to waste time and/or energy in an attempt to fail at some task examples: 1. I didn't want to go to the meeting so I Brodered back and forth between my office and the lunch room for 15 minutes until it started. Then I didn't go because it would have been rude to show up late. 2. I didn't want to have hamburgers again today, so last night I Brodered all the propane away by leaving the barbeque running after I was done cooking. to Broder: to blatantly ignore obvious empirical data about the task at hand examples: 1. The recipe called for a cup of flour, but I only had a half cup handy - so I Brodered and used that. The muffins turned out like inedible hockey pucks. 2. Our kicker had never before made a field goal longer than 40 yards, but the coach Brodered and had him kick from 80 yards away anyway. We lost.
