    • I just really wanted to know the country of origin for lmao
      "My people believe the raven to be a harbinger of change. When the raven’s shadow sweeps across your heart your life will change, for good or ill, there is no way to know. And you, Vaelin Al Sorna, warrior in service to the Faith, are the Shadow of the Raven"
    • haha yeah I know! but I figured there were plenty of other acronyms we were using incorrectly that had fascinating cultural stories

    • the one that's about laughing my backside (in other words) off is actually started because of a pop band that has been around for about 15 to 20 years but was only ever popular from that of their name and its meaning, The only song that they ever had that I know of that was popular is blank and I know it...wiggle wiggle wiggle wiggle....but for some reason they prematurely were a band worse then even the violent fmmes so nobody ever heard of them again till they did that song because its a "shock factor" that ever brings them any popularity anyway.


      Blur or beck I forget witch featured a song that featured the band's influence on article pop....but they are almost on the same page as Weird Al ….



      random huh
    • most other short term abbreviations of simi- culture come from the internet so country of origin isn't really their.....it could have been anyone that sent early bill gates GTHO for get the heck out....and bill used it to paul and paul (ex buissness parter and blizzard entertainment owner) and some others and made it popular and then simi enatical changes where made to seduce a more rude meaning and then turned over a new leaf on what many people would think up next....early 80's internet where wild with things of this nature, it has alos made a comeback with kids cause nowdays there are many things that I have to make my niece explain when we text back and forth and sometimes I still don't get why she uses something and then tells me the meaning behind it yet it makes no actual sense however is a widley used teenage saying from what I understand.....

      these types of things are just floater of country of origin or reagon of use.....a lot comes from all over the united state however where internet was always big...phones where even bigger here after internet started sprawling to other countries. now other countries are caught up so to speak (maybe not all) on both having phones and internet so the newer terms are worldwide...the rest are American for the most part of country of origin in my belief....

      I started on the internet in 1986 and have seen these sayings come up randomly new and overused as many are for years now..but the only people that had internet in china in 1986 where ambassadors or whatnot of working class people...I don't believe their banks even had it yet

      America the land of the free....used internet from 1950's or 60's or something like that and have come up with accronims all along becaue of pornography sharing in the military however most of the terms about that have died accept one that is bbw is from that era.....I forget what it means big bueatiful woman I belive but im not sure....it was mostly American's sending other lonely soldiers pictures of their wifes to german soldiers who where withought communication outside of the computer witch the home didn't have in the 50's or 60's or 70's and thus made internet have any actual use for the military in the first place I think swf is from that era too witch means single white female....witch many wherent it was an objective of officers to send these types of photographs to keep the men in germany with pride and the officers would act as if they where turning their pc over to the swf but would really just text them naughty things about their fantasies that the military used a code between officers clubs and sent mostly the same fantasy's to the soldiers of different areas then just germany however used up to 20-30 fantasy ideals for each platoon then of that 30 mailed 30 more men based somewhere in france….the officers where caught and called pigs because of European mostly british people calling the queens royal army pigs because of their silly hats....



      something some older ladies and gentlemen of USA and the UK shared with me on most of what I know about the military involvement in early internet and initials to start where Formerly Birthed bye officers of the us army anyway
    • wow! the history they don't teach you in school
      "My people believe the raven to be a harbinger of change. When the raven’s shadow sweeps across your heart your life will change, for good or ill, there is no way to know. And you, Vaelin Al Sorna, warrior in service to the Faith, are the Shadow of the Raven"
    • ty gin.

      the things Wikipedia tells are cool, but schools and Wikipedia would be better if you learned history of say "MICROSOFT" or any human bye actually reading their own literature on there company or selves because a lot of whats said is almost false...or not complete....

      the company I own only tells who founded it witch wasn't me but not who all the owners are, and so im not listed on Wikipedia =) but own a pretty big company too...and then you cant find names of current certain workers in company wikipedias because of protection acts so a lot of smart older people I've meet who run banks and know a lot about older times on internet taught me some...I think I should believe them=)

      Old ppl are always smarter about truth on history if they where alive as well
