Acronym for "nerd out loud".

Used to describe an event, action, or feeling of something truely "nerdy"; be it understanding a Star Wars reference, purchasing a new X-men/Fantastic Four crossover comic book, dressing as a Hobbit for a movie marathon, or giggling when you hear the original Pacman intro music played out loud. Usually the term describes these occasions occuring in a public locale or forum.

The term is often subjected to modification, such as the addendum of 'd, changing it's meaning to the paste-tense "nerded out loud". It has also been posed as a question ("NOL?"), inquiring as to wether the recipient "nerded out" over the subject matter.

Tradionally only used in text-based communications on the internet or other digital media, it's become commonplace for it to be used ironically in everyday verbal communications.
