    Acronyms drive me crazy - some of them are not hammock-related so you just gotta use your Google-Fu.

    IIRC - If I Remember Correctly - did we really need an acronym for such an insipid statement?
    YMMV - Your Mileage May Vary - the stupidest acronym to ever come out of Detroit.

    And if you are too lazy to Google some of the acronyms, just ask any kid who texts a lot (which is pretty much every kid).

    ROFLMAO!
