    I like the idea of abbreviations that improve of put twists on the well know ones. For example, instead of LOL, consider the variants :
    SBFN - Sprayed blood from nose... For when you're laughing REALLY hard
    LVQ - Laughing very quietly... For when then object of ridicule is in the room / thread

    always wondered why the word 'abbreviation' was so long check this Russian abbreviation out NIIOMTPLABOPARMBETZHELBETRABSBOMONIMONKONOTDTEKHSTROMONT


    Meaning: Laboratory for Shuttering, Reinforcement, Concrete and Ferroconcrete Operations for Composite-monolithic and Monolithic Constructions of the Department of Technology of Building Assembly Operations of the Scientific Research Institute of the Organization for Building Mechanization and Technical Aid of the Academy of Building and Architecture of the USSR.

    Thanks for this thread. As a non-native English speaker this is really helpfull. The English-speakers think the whole world speaks fluid English and knows all the abbreviations they use...

    I'm English speaking and I have not got a clue what half of them are I got confused with i.r.l and o.t.i the other day when chatting apparently they mean

    i.r.l -- in really life

    o.t.i --- on the internet



    so yes be fun if the members who know could list a few of them
