Gnomenclature is the science concerning the production of electricity. Inside of wires there are thousands of tiny gnomes awaiting command to begin high-fiving. When you flip a light switch on, it triggers a chain reaction between the gnomes. One high-fives the other and a domino affect begins, carrying exponentially increasing gnome high-five magic along a chain of microscopic gnomes, eventually leading to the bulb which is set to continuously run by a gnome performing interpretive dance inside the filament.

Charlie - "What they need to do is bring some scientists in to negotiate the terms of gnomenclature with them"

"Yeah, the gnomenclature around that vaporware was amazing. He kept coming back to the 'Syngergistic Software Alliance Standard,' and I still have no idea if any other companies that are in the alliance besides them."
