    Default Acronym Thread for foreigners ( like me )

    My mother language is not the english, so I find it hard to understand things like IMHO OMG FCOL etc (this one I understand)
    So shall I suggest to the mods to start a thread ( or it could be this one ), where anybody who has an acronym used wildly in mind could write down, for people like me to understand them
    Thanks

    Calvin grows up to be Frazz. The logical continuation of this is, of course, that Frazz then grows up to be Edward Norton's character from Fight Club. And thus, all four of these characters are gods.Let's go one more step. Calvin grows up to be Jeremy, who grows up to be Frazz, who grows up to be "Tyler Durden," while Suzie grows up to be Haruhi Suzumiya; since Kyon becomes The Doctor, this leads to the inescapable conclusion that after the end of Fight Club, Calvin becomes Captain Jack.
