RAN is the abbreviation of the Royal Australian Navy, the senior service of the Australian Defence Force. Australian Sailors are known for having exceptional training and experience due to the fact the majority of Australian ships are minimum-manned, meaning Australian sailors have to compensate for the duties, of say, four or five sailors of a larger navy i.e. USN, RN, etc.

The RAN has served alongside major allies such as U.S, Britain, New Zealand, etc since it's inception around Australia's federation, alongside the Australian land forces, known as the Australian Regular Army.

Stars in many Megaman sprite comics such as the Primer Chronicles, Bob and George and Plague's Misadventures. Is the masterpiece of Kalinka/Calinca Cossack, daughter of Dr. Cossack.

Stands for Random Asshole Nexus. This is the place where a critical number of people have agglomerated in one tight space such that the pressure to be an asshole becomes overwhelming for members of the crowd and therefore any non-asshole individual in the mix can reasonably anticipate being forced to interact with at least one random asshole – or get caught in the RAN - despite their best intentions otherwise.
I had no idea I would be forced to interface with the RAN until I saw the show was 'concert seating.'
