Benign Idiopathic Seizure

Regarding Chief Justice John Robert's illness, translating doctorese into English.
  • Seizure ~ A sudden attack or convulsion due to involuntary electrical activity in the brain.
  • Idiopathic ~ Of or relating to a disease having no known cause.
  • Benign ~ Not life-threatening or severe.
Layman's Translation: We don't know what happened to the Chief Justice's brain but it's not important.

Or, as filtered through the Fox News Headline 3000 Translator:

"Nothing to see here, moving on..."
