wild ass guess!

The {{wag}} tag, when inserted in an article, looks like this wild ass guess!. It means one of two things:

  1. What was just asserted in the text is presumed to be a totally wild guess, with no actual thought put into the guess.
  2. The author at the time knew he was making a totally exaggerated leap of logic, and wanted to let people know.

In either case, realize the assertion given is an opinion, and take it with a grain of salt.
