Similarly, I thought "ftfy" was "gently caress this, gently caress you."

What does it mean I have always read it as gently caress this gently caress you

Okay so if FTW came from angry bikers and biker gangs originated in San Diego as vets returned from WWII to the naval base there with bad attitudes and a lot of combat meth, where would they have learned the art of making every little thing into abbreviations from?

It's the U.S. military ladies and gents. They are the ones who say FTW

Bernie Sanders is white.

I finally saw a picture of him on the Rachel Maddow blog. My only experience of him ( ) beforehand was quotes in D&D, so I thought he was black because he actually gives a poo poo about racial inequality, and the Right considers him an inciter of "race violence".

The actress who played Hatsumomo in Memoirs Of A Geisha was 40 at the time of filming. I thought she was like 22.

The lady who sang Heaven Is A Place On Earth (which I've just realized sounds like You Give Love A Bad Name) was also the lead singer of the Go-Gos.

smdh stands for "shaking my drat head", and not, as I'd previously thought, " suck my dick, haters ".

I've almost never seen the abbreviation outside of yospos, so it took me a while to bother looking it up because my version almost always fits.

Someone told me it meant "so much hate" or "so much drat hate".

Being a larger man in a humid climate, I occasionally suffer from swamp rear end. I thought that everyone just dealt with it and took a shower when they got home, but apparently I was wrong. Was complaining about this to my friends the other day and they called me a retard for not taping silica packets to my underwear. They absorb all the moisture... can't believe I never thought of this before.

I blame being a really big fan of the movie "Fear of a Black Hat", where in one scene, the leader of the group uses the abbreviations FYM, and ASMD; "gently caress ya'll ma'fuckas", "and suck my dick", respectively.

I learned about ASMD from Unreal Tournament after looking up what the ASMD shock rifle stood for, and when I looked it up to double check just now I learned it's actually a reference to this movie. Gosh!

Probably true, the military loves to create new acronyms.

When a ship is decommissioned I love to play the game of how many times can you find FTN (gently caress the Navy) scrawled on the ship. Bonus points for hard to find places. I've seen long vitriol dripping letters written in Sharpie on the back of a panel that had to be unbolted to get at it.

Basically the same ingenuity you see in prisoners for making shivs and stuff you also see in sailors, in fact if I think about it they eat the same way too.


For my own revelation, my sister used to have a round rock with a little sticker on it that said "TUIT" she gave it to me and said it was "a round tuit", it wasn't until years after she moved out that the stupid thing is a pun on "around to it". Right up there with pet rocks for stupid gimmick things but I was so young when she gave it to me and I just put it away and didn't think about it, it just didn't click until years later.

When I was a kid, my much older cousin told my younger brother and younger cousin (they were the only family members really into video games) that they could always just google "(whatever game) faq" to find cheat codes and so on. The kicker was that he told them "FAQ" was pronounced "fahkyoo."
