  • OT: Favorite acronyms

    We've all heard of fubar and snafu. How about:

    BEIFT - (pronounced "beefed") Behold, Every Indicator Forbodes Trouble.

    BOHICA - Bend Over, Here It Comes Again

    CHAOS - Chief Has Arrived On Scene

    and finally,

    FUNDY - (rumored to appear on British medical charts) F***ed Up, Not Dead Yet


    -Mark
    The curse of having precise measuring tools is being able to actually see how imperfect everything is.

        think something on the order of 'Save The Old Iron Club'
        Never found a breakdown, but every reference is also about saving old iron.

            Around computers:

            BDU fault = Brain Dead User fault

            Programming the 6502 CPU

            hFF op code = HCF code = Halt and Catch Fire (caused CPU to lock)

            I won't bore you with 1000 or more used in Xerox.

            Army official slogan was FTA = Fun, Travel and Adventure, also understood as "F**k The Army" by recruits on the last mile of a 12 mile forced march at midnight.

                SCRAM - Safety Control Rod Axe Man or Safety Cut Rope Axe Man or Sucidal Control Axe Man


                All in regards to the first pile under the chicago stadium. Hillerman was the "SCRAM man" and was responsible for cuting a rope with an axe should the control rods fail to act correctly (they were prepared to dump a considerable amount of cadmium salts on the graphite pile to kill the reaction if the control rods didn't work. The ropes should let additional control rods slide into place and if that failed then the last rope was to dump a bunch of cadmium on the reactor)

                      I hear this one every day- GTFO. Time to get the f---'ome.

                      Everyone knows about ****- ship high in transit. All about not getting those cowpies wet while crossing the pond.
