When I see "RPG," I think "Rocket-Propelled Grenade."

...which, I suppose, makes me a geek of the wrong sort to fully appreciate this.

But my favorite coat is brown, after all.

H/T to Irons in the Fire.

Are you more or less of a geek if the first thing that comes to mind is Role Playing Game?

For me the gernade came first, but only by a hair.

RPG is also "Rape Prevention Glasses." Referring to the old standard issue glasses the military used to provide, male and femal. Glasses so fugly even a rapist would be repelled. Also known as "Birth Control Glasses" because you weren't going to get laid wearing them.

Firefly was one of my favorite series, damn shame it went belly up. I bought the DVD sets though, as well as the finale SERENITY movie. Good writing, funny as hell - Jane was a riot! My favorite line - I CALL HER VERA!

Russell - no, you're not. Just a different sort.

Matt - when I first heard "RPG" applied to those horrible glasses I thought, "Yeah, that fits." But it's even more confusing than the other things.

Thanks for the linkage!

And, honestly, we are in the same boat when it comes to the acronyms, but sometimes I really let me nerd flag fly ;)
