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"

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

    this is starting to turn into an ongoing chain where you name a group of letters and someone trys to figureout what they mean then they make one up amd so on

    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 ???

    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 .

    What does IDIC stand for (I really don't know).
