From root words culture and accost - or maybe accumulate. Scholars are unsure; they fell behind on New Yorkers and never got to that piece.
1. Occurs when one has amassed more current events related literature published within a single month than feasibly readable in the average human year. The growing stack of soon to be history papers causes a type of paranoia in which the fear of not being relevantly cultured will actually drive the person to the other extreme: procrasturbation and reality tv.

Typically applied to a situation in which one participant believes she is in a safe space and the companion believes she is practicing her dissertation in the field of "happening to know something that happened."
