Today, while reading an online article, I came across the following comment:
Young people regret their mistakes. Old people regret not deciding. In the contest of prevaricating between which choices we predict we will one day celebrate and those we will one day regret and the alternative of taking decisive action now, it is the latter that should win. Go for it!
It seems to me that the word "prevaricate" is being used incorrectly here- my understanding is that the word denotes evasive behaviour. Am I correct in thinking that the above sentence makes no sense? I'm inclined to think that the poster should have used 'vacillate'instead.
