I will not stop! Typing something like this would be irritating:

I live in the United States of America. I drive an old American Motors Corporation Jeep Grand Wagoneer to the Independent Grocers Alliance to pick up a twelve pack of Dog Fish Head Ninty Minute Imperial Pale Ale, it is my favorite, nearly everyday. I like them for the high International Bitterness Units from the Humulus lupulus. So I went to my Hewlett-Packard Personal Computer and logged into Home Brew Talk to look for a Clone Recipe.

The OP better BOHICA. (My favorite military acronym)

OP must have voted non-engineer. We can make entire sentences out of acronyms.

I just read on the troll wiki that trolls are not able to read abbreviations. Thus, this thread.
