Some sort of Abbriviation, National Education Research forum, New Economy Research forum. I think there is some military abbreviation to it too. What was the name of that website where you could find the abbreviatation of words.

'Nerf' means nerve in French.
I've seen french movie titles with the word nerf in it and buffy also known as nerf herder. But I really have no clue what it means.

Tylenol doesn't mean anything. Neither does Pepsi. Brand names don't have to have any sort of etymology or meaning.

Well, Embargo spelled backwards is "o grab me"
After all, French backwards is hcnerf. I don't know, I just notice things like that.
In star wars, a Nerf is some kind of livestock
I remember "Nerf" being refered to as some kind of substance, I don't remember where though.

One of Parker Brothers' most successful ventures in the seventies began with a four-inch polyurethane foam ball. In 1969, a games inventor came to the company with a volleyball game that was safe for indoor play. After studying the game carefully, Parker Brothers executives decided to eliminate everything but the foam ball. In 1970 the NERF® Ball was introduced as the "world's first official indoor ball." It didn't harm furniture, windows or people.
Obviously, the ball filled a strong consumer need since by the year's end, more than four million NERF balls had been sold.
Parker Brothers wasn't about to stop. The four-inch ball was followed closely by a large version called Super NERF® Ball. Shortly after, in 1972, a basketball game called NERFOOP® and the NERF® Football joined the family. The football fast became the "King of the Gridiron" and the largest selling football in the world. The company continued to add to the NERF® line until they handed the "ball" to Kenner Products, a sister company, in 1991.
ALSO, in the early days Dr. Lonnie Johnson, the inventor of Super Soaker, was resposible for the design and other R&D of nerf blasters. Nowadays the awesome team at Hasbro has stepped it up to design and develop the Nerf lines we love so much.

Just a guess.

Nerfs rarely grow over a meter and a half long, but their horns and powerful kicks still make them worthy of respect among ranchers. The species originated on Alderaan, but the exquisite taste of nerf steaks and the nerfs' adaptability soon allowed herders to transplant herds onto several Core Worlds and well into the colony systems. Production increased to meet demand for all the Core systems, but nerf meat and wool rarely make it out into the Mid Rim or beyond. Planets farther out usually have their own local favorites, and most ranchers would rather raise banthas who have gentler dispositions and are gentler on the nose.
Mountain Grown Variety
The nerfs on the rocky colony planet of Fennesa have adapted to the mountainous terrain over their several thousand years there. More nimble than their flatland cousins, these nerfs live on the rocky mountain slopes, eating the grass and thistled scrubs that grow between rocks. While the typical "plains" nerf is kept in pens and let out to pasture only when necessary, nerf herders of the mountainous persuasion leave their herds out nearly year-round. They usually keep rams and ewes on separate mountains as a safety precaution, but by using their sticks to keep a herd on its own mountain, the herders keep them corralled and protected from predators with topography.
Getting nerfs off the mountain for shearing or slaughter is (no pun intended) the downside to this scheme. Mountain nerfs are incorrigible hiders. Most Fennesa mountains are riddled with shallow caves and rocky overhangs, where the nerfs hide for weeks. This isn't a problem until herders have to drive the herd down to the barns for shearing and health inspections. Some herders have experimented with tracking devices, but most still do it the old-fashioned way: hunting the nerfs down one by one, dragging them out of their holes, and sending them on to the herd below.
Fighting within a herd is more dangerous on elevated terrain. The nerf rams seldom hurt each other while butting heads, but the Fennesa Nerf Herding Council estimates that each year about 5.6 rams out of a thousand are lost due to falls. Although herders clear a mountain of predators before they release a herd onto it, the occasional wounded or dead ram at the bottom attracts scavengers who also enjoy a good nerf steak (very rare).
A healthy mountain nerf can defend itself from these nuisances with its horns, its surprisingly powerful kicks, and its spittle. Mountain nerf spittle is not only foul smelling but also slightly acidic, leaving a sting and a red mark on the unlucky target.
Once their primary weapons have been deployed, nerfs prefer to bolt away from unfamiliar creatures. On loose rock, this has been known to start landslides. Animal behaviorists disagree on whether this is an intentional defense ploy by the mountain nerfs. Most predators prefer to attack from above, making the ploy useless. On the other hand, the nerfs are quick and show a willingness to run past predators to reach higher ground. Whether this is clever or stupid remains debatable.
And there you have it, the nerf.
