    I give up... What does AIB stand for?

    Just like the title says... and we can remove this thread once I have a sufficient answer.

    Or feel free to add other l33t sp3ak words and forum abbreviations you may need help deciphering!

    I still haven't figured out how to put in Off-topic tags. Also don't know how to parse quotations from other sources.

    To use the Off Topic tags, type (without spaces) [ O T ] at the beginning, and [ / O T ] at the end and the result will be

    Off-topic:
    Graham remains among the least-frequently occuring male names in the United States according to the Census Bureau.

    When you reach "laefest," I'm told it's a typo of "alefest," and it stuck.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    This reminds me of a thread Dan was building that was posted for a long time...I think it was called The Culture of Cyburbia...or something like that. It had interesting stuff as I recall: Blue Shirts, Alefests, etc.. but looks like it's gone.

    I'm getting so old and my memory is so bad. Perhaps I'm hallucenating--or it's the wine...
