More You Know: Acronyms

I plan on incorporating this in one of my stories. I don’t understand the revolution that has taken place with abbreviations. I seriously need a cheat sheet to tell me what these mean. I don’t use twitter nor do I use these acronyms except in occasional LOL, but really am I laughing out loud? The answer is no. So why use it? I should more use LI as in laughing inside. I find most of these acronyms as pure laziness. Just spell out the damn words. Is it so hard? I grew up in a different time. Some of them were so stupid, I refused to include them such as SFW as in safe for work. Huh? Enjoy the list and learn something new. I did.
