- Nominated by Meng and Xingtao
- Neutrino at Daya Wan
- Chinese mythology (From Xingtao)
- A nearly female figure in Chinese mythology is the goddess Nu Wa (sometimes Nu Kua-女娲). According to one legend it was she who was the creator of mankind. So almost every Chinese know who NuWa is. - More Info: http://www.kundalini.org.hk/sychinese/nuwa.htm
- From Brett
- Another twist is "NuWa", in some lazy American English pronunciations which you will often hear around here in Long Island, could be taken to mean "newer" which is somehow fitting for our ever changing software. - Also, in Japanese, the phrase "Nu Wa" might mean "I'm talking about the neutrino". As in "nu wa daisuki" meaning "this neutrino, I like".
