Another new word.

Whatknot: n. A knot that, on inspection, appears to be totally impossible; they usually form completely on their own and show up most frequently in cords for electronics. Only when they are untangled - either by skill or by luck - do they seem plausible, yet it remains a mystery how they formed to begin with. Example: "People in my house get these impossible knots in things all the time, and I'm always the one that has to untangle the darned whatknots."
