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

I am telling you, that's why I come here...interactive baby!ReplyDelete
1)Well, I know it's for SCUBA Diving, but I am sure it stands for something good.
2)NASA - Space and Aeronautics; recognizable
5) recognizable, but dont' know real words.
11) Auto Immune Difficiency Syndrome
13)Bring Your Own Bottle
That's all for me. bad.
Sadly the last one is the only one I know: Bring your own booze! :-)ReplyDelete
Thanks for visiting my TT. Have an awesome afternoon.
Holy, this is a tough one...I've gone completely blank...the only thing I can think of is SNAFU and that is a little harsh when defined.ReplyDelete
Good idea, shows me how often I see them and read them and completely don't think about their original meanings...
SCUBA - Self-contained Underwater Breathing AparatusReplyDelete
NASA - National Aeronautics & Space Administration
AIDS - Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome
BYOB - Bring your own bottle or Bring your own bible!
what a great idea for a TT!!!ReplyDelete
well i'm ashamed to say i know very few hihi.
FUBU - for us by us
AIDS - acquired immune deficiency syndrome
BYOB - bring your own booze
and i'd take a few guesses:
NATO: north atlantic treaty organization
INTERPOL: international police
It's sad that I'm a certified scuba diver but couldn't remember what it meant;-) ? operating system Is FICO similar to FICA...well at least I've probably given you a good laugh;-) I did try an interactive one today, also, but I don't think anyone was up to going back to look at my previous TTs for the answers...so they are posted below my TT now!ReplyDelete
Have a great remainder of the day!
I enjoy reading about this Thursday Thirteen post and this about acronyms aspeially.ReplyDelete
My contribution: DOS - Disk Operating System?
Have a lovely Thursday evening:-)
Fun... fun... fun...ReplyDelete
BYOB... bring your own biscuits ;)
Happy T13! Thanks for visiting!
Umm, sadly I've been working all day and my brain is fried. The only ones that I could remember right away were AIDS and BYOB. How sad is that?ReplyDelete
I know SCUBA, DOS and BYOB for sure...that's about it without looking them up. Great list!ReplyDelete
Ha! I think I'm either braindead or just really out of touch. I only got a couple of them! Great list - I like the acronym idea! My TT is up!ReplyDelete
Man, I'm horrible at these! I only know #'s 1,2,5,11,and 13. A great list to really get your readers thinking. My TT is up!ReplyDelete
I think I know 5 out of 13 - but I think I'm about brain dead - or out of touch, or too old. LOL!ReplyDelete
I loved Kimmy's!!
"BYOB... bring your own biscuits ;)"
It could also stand for 'be your own boss'.
Okay, there are a bunch I know, but a bunch I don't either;) My TT is all about Mackinac Island!ReplyDelete
It's funny that some of these have taken on their own word definitions and are recognized unto themselves. I had forgotten a few that I used to know. Thanks for the reminder!ReplyDelete
I have NO IDEA! FUBU was for us by us I think!ReplyDelete
LOL - these are great! I have no idea...I'll have to sit here and study. :)ReplyDelete
I only know Bring Your Own Booze. I thought I knew NASA but I thing I got that one technically wrong. I guess I got an f!ReplyDelete
No, Colleen, you got an A! I grade by participation, lol. Thanks for visiting all.ReplyDelete
ARGH! Hubby is military and I live in a world of acronyms. I'm forever asking him to put that in human speak.ReplyDelete
