Lars, you never watch Star Trek?

Betazoids are an empathic bunch that are allied with the Federation... Councellor Deanna Troy is half betazoid in "The Next Generation".

RPM means Revolutions per minute... "Varv per minut" would be a Swedish translation. (See you speak Swedish).

Although it's been awhile, doesn't i.e. stand for iam est (not id est) and doesn't e.g. stand for examplia gratia (not exampli gratiae, meaning a pleasing example or for the sake of an example)?

Like I said, it's been a bit since I played with the Old Tongue ...

While I'm debating Latin abbreviations (would they be acronyms if we wrote IE instead of i.e.?), what is the use in abbreviating et alia with et al.? By my count, that saves exactly 1 (one) character. Hardly seems worth it.

Ops... I thought it means "Rapid Permanent Megbytes" so you never run out of disk space... Guess that explains why Seagate never answered my complaints after installing EU......:confused:

btw, ijptpmr

driftwood, wrong about id est, half-right about exampli gratia
(no one uses a dictionary anymore? i must be getting old...)

p.s. i shouldn't have brought this up, but let's leave out the politics. just for sag (sh*ts and giggles) i asked my cousin about the tensions in greece the last time i was there. he asked me wtf i was talking about. the situation isn't wwltbh (what we're led to believe here). true, sometimes governments do things that we regret, we can't use a government to act as a stereotype for the people living there. twjbw (that would just be wrong). besides, wipjubocss (what if people judged us based on clinton's sex scandal)?
