Maybe we could also suggest new abbreviations for brands that don't yet have them?!

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

Are these called acronyms? No flaming.....yes or no will be fine. Thanks.
Some folks may cringe each time I use the term "Booze" regarding these high quality drinks.

In the oil patch we use BFHs al the time, they are a very useful tool.

Then there are BFRs like the Saturn V.

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:

HA! A BFH.
I'll have to find a way to use that at work. Most of my co-workers aren't mechanically inclined.
Thank you.

I suggest we only add the acronyms that are used on a regular basis in order to reduce confusion.

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.

Thanks, Brian. If an acronym develops out of familiarity, great but I don't want to be the producer of REd'AV, REd'AB or SADG. ;)

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."

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