T13 - Acronym Edition

Thirteen Acronyms

Just a a silly acronym quiz. Tells you nothing about myself except that I enjoy posting these interactive T13s. See if you can guess what each acronym stands for. No googling! lol (Update: Answers in parentheses.)

*SCUBA (Self-Contained Underwater Breathing Apparatus)
NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration)
FICO (Fair, Isaac and Company - your credit score :-)
*LASER (Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation)
FUBU (For Us By Us - among other things I can't repeat here!)
NASDAQ (National Association of Securities Dealers Automated Quotation)
*RADAR (RAdio Direction And Range)
NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organization)
SETI (Search for ExtraTerrestrial Intelligence)
DOS (Disk Operating System - Thank Mr. Gates)
*AIDS (Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome)
INTERPOL (International Criminal Police Organization - not an exact acronym)
BYOB (Bring Your Own Bottle, Booze, Bisquits, Beef, Bible ...)

*These seem to have become words in their own right and no longer obvious as acronyms. Have I missed any other obvious ones? Thanks for playing!

Extra Credit:
U.N.C.L.E. (As in "The Man From" :-)
(United Network Command for Law and Enforcement - fictional, of course)

Here are some links to other T13s.
