What if, I say If,
you didn't know what the word Hubris meant,
and you were to lazy to find out.
Does that mean that you ought to go for #1?

    Possibly. It's False Lazyness to not look up words you don't know, and instead spend time pondering, then time replying. The True Lazyness would be to spend the time to find out (which reading the other replies to this poll, specificly Re: I need more..., would have told you, BTW), in order to not have to spend the time wondering and looking silly in the future. (See also Hubris, which makes you not want to look silly not for the time it takes, but as a goal in it's own right.)

    OTOH, posting such a self-depercating note when you could have fixed the problem yourself smacks of a lack of Hubris.
