Word of the day – byzantine

Byzantine (adj.) (sometimes lowercase) complex or intricate; characterized by elaborate scheming and intrigue

‘And then, at the far end, are those lies that are so byzantine, so full of twists and nuances, that I can never remember how they go, even though I’ve heard them recounted a dozen times.’
– regarding his father’s inclination toward premeditated jokes from The Know-It-All by A.J. Jacobs
