This week’s pretentious word is proppant:
Proppant: noun. Sand or similar particulate material suspended in water or other fluid and used in hydraulic fracturing (fracking) to keep fissures open.
In the Battlestar Galactica universe, proppants should not be used while fracking.
See if you can come up with a funnier, yet pretentious-sounding sentence! (Try to keep this one as PG rated as possible.)
