In keeping with this thread's topic, what does "Temiosity" mean?

A quick check of the dictionary shows nothing for this word(?) Have not checked the OED. Is it supposed to be something to do with timidity?

"Temious" is a new word, invented right here on RR a number of years ago. As far as I know, the only dictionary carrying it so far is the Urban Dictionary.

Its first use in the history of the world was in RR post #181062 on May 6, 2011. It's original unrefined meaning was, "Something pulled out of one's ass".

I announced it publicly in RR post #195256 on September 24, 2011. Greger had early intel on temious, and he's the one who crafted the completely temious, yet very believable definition that is in the Urban Dictionary.

Search the RR site for the word for a thorough discussion of its meaning and use.

Are we being asked to believe that a RR poster invented the word "temious" sometime after April 26, 2010, but before being publicly announced on September 24, 2011, that it became so well known outside of Reader Rant in a matter of three days prior to said public announcement, some random named Sidheman, happened-by RR during that time, and posted it to Urban Dictionary on September 21, 2011.
