The meaning of Nope

A little internet research on Nope:

NOPE (Not On Planet Earth): A person or attitude that opposes all real estate or other new property developments that would harm the environment or real estate values (such as a garbage burning plant, a nuclear power plant, a giant feedlot, etc.)

“Nope it’s a Soap!” Just in time for April 1st: Soap that looks like dog caca, “but smells like cappuccino,” according to the website.

“In order to provide some content, in 10 seconds you will be redirected to static copies of the main Nope departments.” (A Nope department?)

“For updated crusher and NOPE information, please go to,” which is a site about a proposed gravel quarry operation and those who oppose it.

“Tribe NOPE welcomes you” to their virtual world.

NOPE also stands for the National Organization of Peer Education, “leaders in peer education for HIV and AIDS.”

If you play with the letters in “nope” it can also become “open”, “peon,” and “pone.”

While researching online, Norton flashed a warning on my screen, saying my computer had contracted the “Fujacks!html” virus. So now, Norton is scanning and I’m using C’s set-up. Maybe Nope is a dangerous word…
