In my Data Structures course, the professor recently asked us to guess what it means to perform an amortized analysis of something. Since we didn't know what amortized meant, he told us to guess what that meant.

Paul noticed that it had the fragment 'mort' in it, so he conjectured that it involved killing someone.
I rebutted that it also had the fragment 'amor' in it, indicating that we're loving something.
So we compromised and conjectured that it involved necrophilia.

As it turns out, it doesn't.
