   bang   1. n. Common spoken name for `!' (ASCII 0100001),
   especially when used in pronouncing a {bang path} in spoken hackish.
   In {elder days} this was considered a CMUish usage, with MIT and
   Stanford hackers preferring {excl} or {shriek}; but the spread of
   Unix has carried `bang' with it (esp. via the term {bang path}) and
   it is now certainly the most common spoken name for `!'.   Note that
   it is used exclusively for non-emphatic written `!'; one would not
   say "Congratulations bang" (except possibly for humorous purposes),
   but if one wanted to specify the exact characters `foo!' one would
   speak "Eff oh oh bang".   See {shriek}, {{ASCII}}.   2. interj. An
   exclamation signifying roughly "I have achieved enlightenment!", or
   "The dynamite has cleared out my brain!"   Often used to acknowledge
   that one has perpetrated a {thinko} immediately after one has been
   called on it.
