REALLY stupid question

  1. Mar 25, 2003 #1
    I have been on the Forums for a long time, and I have seen a lot of acrostics, and abbreviations. But I just can't figure out what IIRC stands for . Can someone tell me please?

    "If I Really Cared" or "If It Really Counts"

    ^Oh I've seen it used as 'If i recall correctly' on other forums [?]

    I hate acronyms; why do people not write things out?

    Fart Out Loud?
  17. Mar 26, 2003 #16
    Perhaps, Facts Of Life (this is my real guess, my last one was just a joke, since I couldn't think of any actual answers).

    Another REALLY stupid question...

    What does MIT stand for?
  19. Mar 26, 2003 #18
    haha you got it right!!! too bad you came out later and said you were just joking...

    MIT: Massachusets Institute of Technology?

    or perhaps in internet speak: my insightful thoughts ???
  20. Mar 27, 2003 #19
    No, no, that was my real answer (yeah right). Didn't you catch the sarcasm, in the post where I denied it (yeah right). How could you have possibly thought that I didn't get the right answer? :wink:

    I was going to ask what IDGARA stood for, but I don't think it's appropriate for discussion .
  21. Mar 28, 2003 #20
    What does IDIC stand for (I really don't know).
  22. Mar 28, 2003 #21
    What does IDIC stand for?
  23. Mar 30, 2003 #22
    International Department of Idiot Control?
    or maybe
    I Do It Constantly?
    If that's the case, you'll never see me using the latter. :frown:

    LOL Kyle! I think only net gamers would understand 1337. (does anyone who doesn't play online games understand it?)

    I understand all of the sentence except for the CWOT and FTF...

    (PS: Kyle, I only just figured out that your name is most likely 'Kyle. B.' and not 'Ki-leb' )
