Seeing as how the V.P. is such a V.I.P., shouldn't we keep the P.C. on the Q.T.? 'Cause if it leaks to the V.C. he could end up M.I.A., and then we'd all be put out in K.P.

In the early days, I accidentally shoulder surfed a friend's email. His dad ended the email with "By the way what does BTW mean?"

I'd like to think this was a dad joke. But it was the early days of everybody learning to internet.

2014-06-17 08:44:58 PM  
Ok, so they keep a list of acronyms, And lots of them are outdated. It's not like you would go through and delete old ones or rarely used ones. Because if you did you'd run into instances where you needed it and didn't have it. Just easier to maintain the list. It's not like that are memorizing and using it.

Stupid article is stupid.

Also urban dictionary is idiotic. Anyone can put anything in there. You can define cars to mean bombs. Then they would parse the sentence. I like to make cars. Into a terror threat.

Lastly, Twitter, really?

Those are not acronyms, those are abbreviations.   

Acronyms are pronounced as a word, such as NASA or SCUBA, whereas abbreviations are stated as letters, such as U.S.A. or BBW.
