Deipnosophist - Really?

Are you familair with that word?  It is based on at least one word you know.  Deipnon is the Greek word for the main meal of the day, what we would consider to be dinner.  Sophist is the term for a persuasive speaker.  Combine them and you have a term for someone who is an entertaining and enjoyable dinner conversationalist. 

I'd like to think that attending Big Questions would develop a deipnosophistic tendency in a person...
