I hope my apology is accepted! Now on to my story.
- SHTF: Sh*t hits the fan.
- TEOTWAWKI; The end of the world as we know it.
- WROL: Without rule of law.
- GOOD: Get out of Dodge
In the real world, who talks like this? If your friends need an acronym dictionary to figure out what you’re talking about, they may decide the prepper world is some sort of secret society with “special” handshakes and creepy initiation ceremonies. (Editor’s note: The proper way to use an acronym is on SECOND reference. Otherwise, there is no way to tell what the acronym means. NRA, for example, doesn’t necessarily mean the National Rifle Association. And do you really want to explain what SHTF means to someone you ran across at church? End of Leon’s rant.)
