Question: What’s a SWAG? ——OTP

Answer: SWAG is an highly technical, time-honored acronym for scientific wild-assed guess, a variant of WAG (a plain or unscientific “wild-assed guess”). It is a term to describe an on-the-fly appeal to intuitive processes that lie outside of standardly accepted scientific methodology. In other words, its a plain, ordinary “hunch.” ——SWF
