Acronym Assistance Needed

Being relatively new to Unicylcing Forum…

Please define: does UPD stand for Unplanned Dismount?

Are there others I/we the newbie(s) should be aware of?

UPD = UnPlanned Dismount. (Usually a jocular reference to falling off, although some use it more specifically to mean an unplanned dismount without complete loss of control or dignity.

MUni/Muni is Mountain Unicycling.

Not many others of which I can think.:slight_smile:

Aw, man!!

You just gave away the answer to my Trivial Pursuit question! :stuck_out_tongue:

[I][B]Darling!
It’s SOOOOO obvious!
Don’t let those rascals befuddle you!

“UPD” stands for “Unicycling Police Department”
They’re your safety patrol… they’re watching out for you!
Get to know them! [/B][/I]

Maaaatha,

This Police Dept is where?..Keystone?

POS means piece of … and refers to a less than acceptable unicycle.

I always thought that was “In My Humble Opinion” you also see “IMNSHO” which I think means “In My Not So Humble Opinion” (for posters who are full of themselves)

LMAO = Laugh My Ass Off
ROTFLMAO = Rolling On The Floor Laughing My Ass Off
FU = Go Away (only half an acronym really)
IANAL = I Am Not A Lawyer (usually preceeding some potentially dodgy legal advice)

FWIW[1], IIRC[2], ISTR[3] that YMMV is short for Your Milage May Vary. IANAL, BTW… ROFLMAOSMIRRAOSIB[4]!

HTH, HAND[5]!

Phil, just me
