noun. A little less than nano-diddly; a little more than nano-squat.

Related terms: nano-bionic-whateverization, nano-cylo-std, nano-destructo-mat, nano-douche-bot, nanomajig, nanopoop, nanoschlong, nanosomethingorother, nano-souled, nanotesticles, nano-wand of love.

Real citation: “We can only see things that are reflected by a very narrow band of wavelengths, and then, only things that are within our field of vision. The things have to be large enough, facing us, distinguishable from the background, and on the surface. And we can never see them as they are, but only as they were, with a delay set by the speed of light. That’s very quick I grant you, but you could be looking into deep space, and even if you’re not, you get the point: even if the delay is only a nanodoodle, you’re still slightly behind the times.”
(David Staume, 2006, Modern Philosophy,

Made-up citation: “A life can be ruined in a nanodoodle—but only with a really, really fast life-ruining device.”
