Somehow, in California Aerospace Engineering and Manufacturing culture, "Machts nichts" became "Mouse nuts".

We will now return to our normal programming...
Ah, California Aerospace Engineering and Manufacturing linguistics!

I recall one or two words and phrases from that lexicon; residuals from my misspent youth employed in that culture.

Example: KLUGE (noun). Only some time after I left the culture I discovered, actual people were NAMED, Kluge! Some day, an academic Doctorate will be awarded an etymologist whose thesis reveals the origin of, "kluge," in the California Aerospace Engineering and Manufacturing context.

A, "free world" definition of kluge (or kludge): A badly assembled collection of parts hastily assembled to serve some particular purpose. Some say this definition captures the essence of KLRs. We, of course, the KLRista cognoscenti, know that interpretation is false.

NOW, back to our regularly-scheduled programming!
