!!Elaboration
I guess the laconic version isn't so helpful.

In the Real Life, I am a human who has issues that hindered my biological and mental development. So yeah, I am dumber than most people around me, sick ninety-nine percent of the time, and very nearsighted after looking at the sun under a telescope (SEE? I am dumb). When I was very little, my parents' think I am mentally retarded (in the smart people way), but it turns out I am normal. Normal. Yep.

You see, in where I came from, at that time, biologically and mentally inferior is '''BAD'''. Very bad. Bad enough that suicides because of it comes in packs and packs each year (now, with introduction of Internet and advancement in [[AC: science!]] and common sense, the number dwindle down). My parents pushed me into various classes, from penmanship to violin. Let's say that as of today, my handwriting is rat scratch class and I broke my violin's string far too many times. I am a failure. It is only after we flew across the Atlantic that my parents accept it. It is not saying that I am a failure in life, just that I am biologically and mentally inferior, and there are a lot of people in that state in the history book and(*cough cough*) the Congress. So no, I am not giving up on life.

[[folder: Current works that I am following:]]
* ''Manga/UchuuKyoudai'' (My wonderful optimism fuel...)
* ''Manga/ShingekiNoKyojin''

* Cato Institution. LOL.
[[/folder]]

Contrary to what my handle might implied, I don't have a blue passport that allowed me to submit a resume to NASA...yet. In fact, I have a red passport that '''bans''' me from entering any of the NASA facilities, especially after someone in Congress made some racist remarks (that shall not be named, but if you are American and paid attention to the news, you might have heard of him). Did not prevent me from getting a handshake from Pete Worden. *evil smirk* And that picture is in the vast NASA database too!

\*hold hand above heart* '''I hereby swear to This Very Wiki and the Smithsonian Twitter Archive and S. Pete Worden that I shall try my best to get my arse into NASA as a civil servant and shall never give up spamming resume until I do and never leave the agency no matter how terrible it is until it cease to exist in the entire multiverse.'''

!!Where Did The Name Came From?

One day, bored and want to torture myself, I did a search for "abolish NASA". After about n-pages later, and very late at night, I found an article criticizing Daniel Goldin!NASA. The person the writer quote said "we live in a world without NASA" or something similar and AoE'ed all geekdom by stating that we treat NASA like a GOD. Which isn't far out of reality not just in U.S, but around the world, especially in youngsters from where I came from that knows nothing about the whole Capitalism vs. Communism thing.

The next day, I thought about a world without NASA. Let's see--the Allies might not be able to win World War I, depends on how strong the British Navy is without all the U.S. support. Prussia might still exist. Adolf Hitler might not hate the Allies and start the World War II. U.S. might not become a super power. Advisory Committee for Aeronautics might become a technological giant. We might be using a mobile telegraph (didn't research history very well when I thought about it, but admit it, it is kinda cool, right?). That's a picky nail there.

The next next day, I drowned myself in GaiaOnline's zOMG, get myself in a DMS crew, and went ass-kicking. Except the crew was boring. So very briefly, I present myself as the priest of my alter ego. My crewmates' responses were "NASA is a church?". Me: "I wish it was, so it will have more money than 17.8 billion".

I need something more badass (and more politically correct). So how about...Knight of NASA?

A few months later, I spotted "church of NASA" in ''Missing Man'' by Michael Cassutt.

'''TL;DR''': someone forgot to wrote in the "Get Known" form that you could introduce space by capitalizing.

!!Bottom Line
If you are from my school, I am the person who wrote [=CCDev=] as the successor to STS instead of the official [=CxP=]/SLS in the school yearbook. Because [[PoesLaw privatize is the way to go]], [=CCDev=] is how Obama and Charlie Bolden see as the ultimate successor to STS, not because I want to glorify NASA.
----
I shall come back a few years later and be amuse by how stupid I was today. Hopefully I didn't violate my oath by then.

Although I wanted to, I don't have [[{{TheSpaceRace}} National Aeronautics]] [[DwightDEisenhower and Space Act]] under my pillow. Nor the [[UsefulNotes/WorldWarI Naval]] [[WoodrowWilson Appropriation Act of 1915]] (so thank [[AllGermansAreNazis G]][[StupidJetpackHitler e]][[HitlerAteSugar r]][[CommieNazis m]][[UsefulNotes/NaziGermany a]][[UsefulNotes/WorldWarII n]][[ThoseWackyNazis y]] for the creation of NASA).
