    It's meaningless to you because you have no idea what the people who coined it mean by it, nor have you indicated any interest in asking them. You aren't speaking for anyone but yourself.

    It's actually fascinating that you're not an engineer, or a scientist, or a shoe developer, and yet you're bold enough to say it has no real-world application.

    I like to ask the people who know about these things before I go asserting that something is useless, when in fact I know next to nothing about the problem at hand. Then I don't end up sounding like a know-it-all who actually knows nothing.
