    On my way to work this morning I fired up my DGE cob to enjoy some DGT of last night’s OGS. I stopped to pick up a pouch or two of OTC's because of a recent string on here. Bought CH, but no luck finding PA or SWR. Seams TAD is a reoccurring condition.
    That’s when I realized… holy smokes I speak a second language! Acronym !

    Funny thing I was at the Chicago show and told a guy I like Vapers and he looked at me like I was from another planet. I then said I like Va and Perique blends and all was right with the world. I guess he didn't speak acronym. :)

    I guess tobacco acronymics is only supposed to be a written language, not spoken. Or that guy needs to study up.

    THANK YOU!!! Enough problems and foul ups in the world today are caused by our failure to understand one another, we don't need to deliberately make the situation worse.

    When they do, I hope they can spell "writing" and "environment" :)

    I think their thumbs and hand muscles will become enlarged from overuse and we'll see new ailments similar to carpal tunnel syndrome only involving the tenons of the thumbs. In the future the shape of mankinds hands may very well change.:D

    I manage an independent study legal research and writing course at the University at Buffalo and you should see the garbage these kids turn in. Sometimes I wonder if it's English.

    People have been heard (not by me, but I'm assured it occurs) saying "Lol!" in response to something amusing.

    They won't need thumbs - their mobiles, laptops, etc. will all have wireless connections to electrodes permanently implanted in their brains.
