Virgin's list of BM's acro's and principles

Postby Dropman » Thu Mar 10, 2011 10:18 am

Greetings fellow virgins!

As an international (non-native-English-speaker) virgin BM'er this year I have been reading my ass off in guides, papers and Eplaya postings. And I came across some pretty confusing acronyms, words and principles. But in the end I worked it all out!

May I present... tadaaa.... the beginning of the Virgin Acro List 2011:

--- 8< cut here ---

MOOP = Maybe Others Offer Pizza

Burn'scars = vehicules on voluntary fire

Go-ped = is what you say to your dog when you toss him/her out of the car window on your way to BM

B.E.D. = Bravoury Earns Discretion

DMV = Do Men Volunteer?

--- 8< and here ---

Please help me to complete this list for it is vital for us virgins to know this by heart!

:lol: Maybe this should be included in the "Advice not to give" thread.

When I was a kid I used to pray every night for a new bicycle.
Then I realised that the Lord doesn't work that way so I stole one and asked Him to forgive me.

Uh...I'd say you have a pretty good grasp of English...the idiom part, anyway.
Don't bore your friends with all your troubles. Tell your enemies instead, for they will delight in hearing about them.

The online world like eplaya doesn't explain it.

Just go and figure it out.

Plenty of camps are welcoming to first timers and out of country visitors.
