car talk on language

i don't own a motorcar, but i enjoy listening to car talk, whenever i find myself awake on a saturday morning before the crack of noon. in fact, it's great fun and always an educational experience, not limited to the realms of automotive technology and service, humour and common sense.

for instance, today, i learned the word obnubilate which means to confuse: make unclear, indistinct, or blurred as in «his words obnubilate his true wishes».
