I've been compiling a list of acronymn for my own reference, and I thought they should go here:

 

SSD (Super Star Destroyer)

GE (Grand Emporium)

TH (Town Hall)

SC (Sopwith Camel)

HH (Haunted House)

MC (Minecraft)

SOP (Sydney Opera House)

QFLL (Quick Flip Lowlife Looser?)

 

Also, I still don't know what these are. Will someone clue me in?

 

SW

BF

SD

GC

Lets go ahead and add TP for exciters toilet paper posts today

 

I just don't want to hear folks "woe is me" about not being able to find anything useful to spend $75 on at Target.

 

If we add TP, we have to add BH.  You always need TP for your BH.

LOL. Duly noted. I already added it in my acronyms. If anyone is having trouble spending $75 at Target just ask your wife because mine certainly has no problem meeting that criteria

BP members are known for their liberal use of acronyms. Please post examples of extreme acronym use. I'm looking for sentences that would be utterly confusing or ridiculous to outsiders but are accepted here without comment.

 

I'll start. Here's an example that gave me pause, yet only confused one member who was unfamiliar with PR:

 

 

Best you can do now is set default method to RC, use GC for full amount, while utilizing shopping CB site, and getting CB from CC GC purchase, and throwing PR 5% on top.
