It's Megadeth, not Megadeath.

Well, not to be a nitpicker, but as a physicist by training, I am a bit surprised that "mega" is considered a unit of measurement. It is merely "a unit prefix in the metric system denoting a factor of one million" (to quote after Wikipedia). So we have megahertz or megatonne, but it's "hertz" and "tonne" that are the proper units, not "mega."
Anyway, my two cents.

I think it's all a bunch of Korn. That's my 2 cents worth.

that would be netspeak (tweatspeak?) for "but then, what do I know". (b.t.w.d.i.k.)

You missed the point. Not everyone texts.

Hi again M'Lady - I understand that, for sure. I don't text - I actually still only use a feature phone - my smartphone has only wifi, no cell, and is used only as a very small tablet I can carry in my pocket.
I take it you weren't asking for yourself?
Since this discussion was on a site from HTG, I presumed (maybe mistakenly) that most readers would be savvy to the acronyms. (actually, I seldom use them myself any more since I stopped using teletype and CB radio - yes, we used the "new" acronyms/shorthand back in the 60's, and just thought I'd be speaking in the same "tongue" as the group)...
If everything old is new again, how come I don't feel new?
ladyfitzgerald at September 30th, 2013 13:45 — #13
For the same reason I don't. Sucks to be old, doesn't it?
The text abbreviation you used starts with a more common one, BTW, so I was quite puzzled when I saw By The Way D.I.K.
