word of the day: moot

this one has had me confused, and has been getting me in trouble for years! It seems kinda self-contradictory (is there a word for that?).

moot: adj. subject to or suitable for discussion, but having no practical importance, and being irrelevant. It also refers to academic, thought experiments.

Does anyone know what this word even means?
