narthex - A public common area within a data network, for the continually-updated summation of status, findings, progress, active missions & committees, etc., within any large project. In concept, similar to a telethon's "thermometer" showing donations-to-date, a sports arena's digital scoreboard with stats, or the "big board" in a War Room a la Dr. Strangelove. [Origin: architecturally similar to a foyer or cloaca, the narthex is a frontal space (often unwalled) of a cathedral, behind which (often screened) were other more private areas within the church building itself. In this sense the narthex can be viewed philosophically as an informal common ground between the clergy and the congregation, between the insiders and the outsiders: it analogizes a house's "front porch" to which anyone has easy access even though a "front door" (which can be locked) implies more private space in the home beyond.]

e.g., "Send no further inquiries by private operator message channels. If the information you desire is not posted on the narthex, then it is proprietary data that you are not allowed to access without network administrator clearance."

nasa - Your significant other. |    No Americans in Space Anymore. Well over a year before Occupy Wall Street, The Silicon Graybeard lamented the imminent passing of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. "Catchy acronym credited to commenter Dyspeptic Curmudgeon on Alpheca. Check the link for an almost presient foretelling of the Occupy Wall Street movement. The acronym was apparently created about the time National Aeronautics and Space Administration Director Charles Bolden told Al Jazerra that President Obama wanted him to make feel-good Muslim outreach a high priority: "One, he wanted me to help re-inspire children to want to get into science and math; he wanted me to expand our international relationships; and third, and perhaps foremost, he wanted me to find a way to reach out to the Muslim world and engage much more with dominantly Muslim nations to help them feel good about their historic contribution to science and engineering -- science, math, and engineering." NASA spokesman Bob Jacobs soon clarified that Bolden was speaking only of "outreach" priorities and not about NASA's "core mission": "science, aeronautics, and space exploration." Sounds reasonable, but Bolden sure stepped in it, didn't he?

e.g., I can't hang out with the guys tonight; I have to go see nasa. |    "NASA -- No Americans in Space Anymore" Think of the summer of 1969. Two big things happened that summer. The first moon landing in July, and Woodstock, a few weeks later.    The first was a tribute to hard working men and women: engineers, technicians, assemblers, and tens of thousands of hard working people who undertook a task that many viewed as impossible. "To land a man on the moon and return him safely to earth by the end of this decade". It was hard work, it was risky work. Men died: outstanding men you'd be proud to have known or worked with. It was a triumph of intellect, done with slide rules and calculators that your Smart Phone out classes by a factor of thousands. Even today, it is thought of as so hard to do that about 5% of the population thinks we never did it.    The second was a bunch of kids having sex in the mud while drugged out of their minds, listening to singers and musicians drugged out of their minds.    The first group was dedicated to doing things others can barely only imagine -- bending the universe to their will through sheer intellect and power. They are "can do" people.    The second group was dedicated to rubbing body parts against each other with no effort of will and no character. Their entire focus in life is their genitals.    The second group is now in charge of the country.    Which kind of person are you? The Tea Party is to Occupy Wall Street as NASA is to Hippiedom.

nasalien - (pronounced nay-ZAY-lee-en; n.) creating an alien (i.e., a nonterrestrial) by adding ridges to an actor's nose, ears, or forehead (or something), resulting in a species somehow exactly the same as humans except for the makeup. (The paradigmatic nasalien is Kira Nerys, the Star Trek Bajoran whose nasalienation consists of nothing more than nose ridges. The pronunciation of Nerys is very close to the Spanish word nariz “nose.”) Nasalienation is also sometimes referred to as “sewing on a tentacle.”

e.g., ldquo;So this guy just has funny teeth and weird eyebrows? What is that all about?” “I guess he's just a nasalien: you know, there for ... I don't know, SF-ish decoration?”
