I don't know about everyone else, I can't bring myself to refer to Ridge Verte as RV. Too many images of Randy Quaid in a bath robe with a cup of coffee in one hand and a hose in the other come to mind.

JL for the Jades, especially since they no longer refer to the big crapsinthe maker that once made good booze.

 

RiV & RiB? or GMfMT and CMfMT? (Ridge Verte or Blanche, and Green or Clear Mana from Montana)

 

LG = La Grenouille

Share more about this oil patch. I'm a clerk.

A big fucking hammer is a great way to bolt, or un bolt pressure vessels, when used with good quality hammer wrenches. Good engineers design for such, lazy ones design for the use of hydraulic torque wrenches. Also a great way to tap an inserted piece in/out of things. Also a great way to cut and crimp a 1/4" hydraulic control line all at once, reducing time, and potential for contamination of said line. And a great means for paramedics to learn about busted fingers. :laugh:

Whew! THANK YOU Brian!

 

Those F'n acronyms drive me nuts and I had planned to just refer to what ever I was drinking as either green 'sinthe or white 'sinthe.

 

People take short cuts until nobody has any idea W.T.F.! people are trying to say. It's a keyboard and it has a backspace button.....relax and type the names......I think the producers would appreciate it.

 

Just my two cents.

KFC. Changing the name of Col. Sander's place was the tip of the downward spiral. Mickey D's, The continuation. Kmart is now simply a giant red "K."

I shan't place my head upon these train tracks. GFY. :tongue:

Me neither... I'm a veggie. and the GFY = "great for you," yeah...that's it! Absinthe is great for you...that's what I meant...

 

Really, that highlighted interpretation? I'd never suggest that, though I'm sure it would come in handy on a few occasions here. :devil:
