Bomah

Somebody who's wicked smaht; a Brain. At least in Saugus, that is. From the Bomar Brain, one of the first affordable calculators, which was made in Acton.

re: Bomah

I grew up in Saugus but I never heard that word thrown at me (I was one of the smaht kids) Then again, I was minted in 1982, so maybe I'm too young. Someone probably said it to me when I was very young and I never picked up on it.

I grew up in Saugus and no one ever said it (I was one of the smaht kids on honnahs classes, but we never used it). Then again, I was born in 1982, so maybe I'm not old enough. Some grownup prolly said it to me and I never picked up on it.

re: Bomah

Oh, I remember that well. Mid-80s at good old SHS.I actually still use it on occasion online; it confuses my friends from other parts of the country.
