What are NaN miles? What does NaN miles mean?

Filed under ‘too embarrassed to ask someone’, I checked in with my friend Google and she explained the sudden appearance of the acronym. Apparently, NaN means ‘Not a Number’ and is a default when a) no mileage is listed on your 1983 Arctic Cat snowmobile or b) the numbers were input incorrectly. It defaults to NaN as an indication that you made an oops inputting the mileage or you simply could not be bothered to find the key, turn it on, check the mileage, and record the mileage.

It must be a recent upgrade on Facebook because one day it seemed to suddenly appear and confuse the heck out of me. Wouldn’t MNA be a better acronym: Mileage not available? What about CBTGM: Couldn’t be bothered to get the mileage? I am not alone in my curiosity regarding the acronym. When googling for information, one person wrote that they thought it indicated that the car for sale had been driven very slowly or carefully by a ‘Nana’ (a grandma). I also considered that it was a new acronym that only the ‘cool’ kids used which exacerbated my anxiety about asking a Gen Z for assistance.

Do I admit that I am no longer cool? Is the use of the word ‘cool’ something that is no longer cool? On the topic of cool, I want to be clear. I don’t throw around words like malarky or hullabaloo, but I do cling to adjectives like, “That is so cool!” and “That’s wild!” and tend to toss them around willy-nilly.

What does “NaN” miles mean? It usually means “not a number” or that there’s no value associated to the number of miles.
