Incase anyone wants to know (who don't already know it) it is pronounced "ing"--Fly boy42 20:52, 22 April 2006 (CDT)

"NG" DOES refer to the National Geographic Society, cf. --DerMagus 15:13, 12 July 2006 (CDT)

  • It can just as easily refer to Newgrounds, National Guard, Newsgroup, or even "Neutral Good". There are a total of 17 possible references from that single disambiguation page - who are you to say that National Geographic Society is the one being referenced by KoL? (in all likelihood, it's a reference to the Cantonese surname, though that itself is referenced via "Ana Ng") --Quietust 15:17, 12 July 2006 (CDT)

Battling a globe? How do you think the connection between "NG" and a globe is to be made? Accident? This was my instant reaction when I encountered the globe first time. How do the other ones fit? Maybe even unintended references exist? Show me another fitting abbreviation. Tell me how to solve the globe-defeating riddle.--DerMagus 15:26, 12 July 2006 (CDT)

The connection comes from the lyrics of the song 'Ana Ng': "Make a hole with a gun perpendicular / To the name of this town on a desktop globe / Exit wound in a foreign nation / Showing the home of the one this was written for". See the "use" message. --Incandenza 15:33, 12 July 2006 (CDT)

The NG (my reference) is far more known than this strange song, I think. Besides, there are lots of double or triple references. I would have been completely unable to either find the song or to apply it. I find this ridiculous as (only) solution to this "riddle". NG as National Geographic Society is 100% clear for me whan I encounter a globe. Geography in perfection, so to say.--DerMagus 15:36, 12 July 2006 (CDT)

The National Geographic may or may not be more widely known (to the KOL audience?) but the combat message CLEARLY refers to the lyric. Note the boldfacing of the word perpendicular in the globe description. They Might Be Giants references abound in this game. As best you could say NG MIGHT refer to the National Geographic but definatly refers to Ana NG. --Mkanoap 15:41, 12 July 2006 (CDT)

The Ana Ng reference and puzzle solution is clearly intended. To solve the puzzle by assuming NG == National Geographic is a highly idiosyncratic approach at best. The fact that you find the intended solution "ridiculous" or wouldn't have been able to figure it out doesn't make your strange alternative any more plausible. --Incandenza 16:05, 12 July 2006 (CDT)

Needs more testing to ascertain distribution. --Foggy 10:03, 26 September 2007 (CDT)
