Is confuddle even a word? Do you mean befuddle?

He's combining the old terms confuse and befuddle into a new term. Totally acceptable under modern descriptive linguistic theory.

You should be able to figure this out. It isn't rocket surgery or anything.

Isn't befuddle already mean confused? That would be redundant.

wow this guy is awesome,that was totally wicked

it is impressive, mostly impressive that he managed to find a way to make money off a really obscure and mostly useless skill.

Actually there's a trick to figure out the missing number in that one mathemagic. The number is dividable by 9 wich means all the multiplications will be dividable by 9 also. When the volunteers say the numbers outloud, all he has to do is to apply the rule of 9 and add all numbers up. Subtract that number from 9 and you know what the missing number is.

not really in modern tongue. It's just like like my word Craptastic. I merged fantastic and crap, obviously, into a word that basically jsut a bolder word for CRAP. You can also substitute crap for s**t.

I can see the difference in your example, but I don't see the difference in confused/befuddle. I guess English as a second is showing...

I've been a fan of "confuzzled" myself. A mixing of confused and puzzled. Just like befuddled they're all quite close in meaning, and the merging into new terms is just a fun way to express the same meaning.

Rocket science and brain surgery are obviously not the same thing, but they're both expressions used to explain something that is quite complicated, or something very simple when used after a negative. I'm also a fan of "rocket surgery" and sometimes it'll spark a couple of laughs if used in conversation.

Wow!
