NUDIUSTERTIAN is the name of a new technology in mirrors, where there is no distortion in the in the image. They are much safer than traditional rearview mirrors (on cars) that distort the distance of approaching cars. These true image mirrors have reduced the incidence of highway collisions by a factor of 15%.

Nude= naked/no clothes. ius= even more, so no jewellery allowed as well as clothes. tertian = third stage in life, therefore a nudiustertian is an over-sixties naturist and let me tell you, that is not a pretty sight.

LOL Cunliffe!!!  Ok, I gotta at least try......
 
Nudiustertian is an inhabitant of that little known country, Nudiusteria.
Because of their isolation, they have a genetic predisposition to an allergy to clothing.
This was really not that much of an issue.......................
 
.......................until their delegation arrived at the UN meeting.............

Well, in Italian CLOUDS is NUVOLE so NU is for NUVOLE.
Then DIUS is for GOD,
STERTIAN sounds like the endding of CISTERCIAN (Monks).
 
So a NUDIUSTERTIAN is a new religious sect of monks worshipping the God of the Clouds.

LOL cunliffe!

Nude = naked 
Uster = a town in Switzerland 
Tian = a ceramic vessel used for cooking and serving food in Provence 

Hence, a Nudiustertian is a person from Uster, who loves to cook French food while being naked.
