Snoopsyology

Created by: splendiction

Pronunciation: snoop see o lo gy

Sentence: The trusted Dr. C Awl’s latest podcast of his students’ latest studies into what people do when they think nobody’s looking reached a conclusion that privacy no longer exists. Further research by the observed snoopsyologist will undoubtedly uncover even less about what we already know, or want to know, about people we don’t know. Dr. C. Awl does contend thick presence of various forms of surveillance will eliminate “gossip”, or “hearsay” as well as “curiosity” as eventually all will be heard and seen by all. The only really safe people will be the deaf and blind.

Etymology: From snoop (to spy on) and "ology" (any branch of knowledge or a science.)
