Abbreviations! Let's do it

Ok this came up in chat. A member was not familiar with a lot of the abbreviations most of us use and take for granted. Stuff like LOL=laugh out loud that sort of thing. There are also lots of reptile related abbreviations that not everyone is familiar with. I thought we could put our heads together and make a good list of them all. I will be happy to put it into a word doc or something for future reference. I've seen it on other sites and it is very helpful

Corr, you're right that's what FUBAR is! At least here it is! F.I.N.E also has other meaning...(******-up, Insecure, Nurotic and Emotional)
