    Here's a couple that might be of particular use in both the Humidor and Cuban Cigar forums

    RTFM - Read The Fucking Manual

    PEBKAC - Problem Exists Between Keyboard And Chair

    And one more for you that I'll use in a sentence. If you don't get it, read it again - it'll come to you eventually. :p "Oh that? It wasn't a big deal. The guy was all worked up due to an ID10T error."

    Thanks for the info. One thing I haven't been able to find however is the origin of Herf (and yes I have check the search box). Is it an acronym, an abbreviation, something else? Can someone enlighten this newbie? I know this can't be a first time request, so please bear with me.

    The term "Herf" used to describe the smoking of a cigar comes from the 1960's in America when many cigar smokers listened to Herf Alpert and the Tijuana Brass while smoking their favorite stogie. The music was latinesque and thus provided an atmosphere of semi-cuban reminiscence. Soon, cigar smokers began to say things like "I was with the Brass last night and the Herf was so good I thought I was in Havana." Thus, we can all thank Herf Alpert for his influence on 'garbonics.

    Interesting thought, and here I always thought it was Herb Alpert! How could I be so wrong, and me being old enough to have been a fan. :(

    I was amused when I saw B&M (or actually BM). My wife did medical billing, and BM there stood for bowel movement.

    B&M (Alternately BM) = Brick and Mortar (to indicate an actual Shop you go to for cigars as opposed to ordering off the internet)

    Well, if you were really cool you would know it is Fat Upper PUBIC Area and if you had bothered you'd know we also like people who know how to use the shift key. And yes, you don't need to post that here. ;)

    Read this and then see if you change your response to include an apology, not sarcasm.

    I guess I don't have a clue. I didn't know this forum was a bunch of uptight people who can't take a joke and are so easily offended. How is my use of a shift key going and no grateful i will not apologize for anything all you'll get is sarcasm. You want to know why? Well I said if this wasn't the place for what I said then let me know, if avb didn't want sarcasm maybe he/she shouldn't have made a joke because I wasn't using proper English as to you wanting me to read the do's and don'ts of this forum haha right you'd have a better shot of having me kicked off the board. Actually if i find it filled with up tight people like the two of you I'll probably kick myself off because personally I hate whine bags but to each is own some people have to take a forum seriously because in real life they are probably a joke.

    Bye-bye zaltzy, your posts were useless anyways. Stop taking up bandwidth with your whining and crying, and go enjoy your "LOL Generation"-style forums elsewhere. I can't even fathom whether you graduated high school english or not with your lack of proper capitalization and punctuation, and I can only surmise that you are going nowhere fast in life with that crappy attitude you are carrying around with you. Have some respect for f*ck's sake. Believe me when I say you're done.


    I believe I do actually have something to add to the acronyms with a message for whiney here when I say: GTFO!!

    It is sad that this is where the world is headed. I truly am shocked daily to find the lack of respect that the younger generation shows adults and the lack of intelligence shown in written work. *sigh* I think I'll go for a smoke...
