    Wow, how many abbreviations is it necessary to know to live without discomfort in an English speaking country?

    In russia we know "НДС, ПМЖ, ПМС, ГАИ(ГИБДД), МВД (УВД, ОВД), РФ, ММВБ, КВН, КВД..."
    There are many others, but I mean the most widespread ones, which are known to nearly all people.
    Send me a PM if you need me.

    I was a member when I was a kid. They do a lot more then that. They had a nice pool, basketball court, had sleep over's. All kinds of stuff, and they really didn't push the religion.

    Young man, there's no need to feel down.
    I said, young man, pick yourself off the ground.
    I said, young man, 'cause you're in a new town
    There's no need to be unhappy.

    Young man, there's a place you can go.
    I said, young man, when you're short on your dough.
    You can stay there, and I'm sure you will find
    Many ways to have a good time.

    It's fun to stay at the y-m-c-a.
    It's fun to stay at the y-m-c-a.

    They have everything for young men to enjoy,
    You can hang out with all the boys ...

    It's fun to stay at the y-m-c-a.
    It's fun to stay at the y-m-c-a.

    You can get yourself clean, you can have a good meal,
    You can do whatever you feel ...

    Yep, you can't master English until you are familiar with the song TATY just posted.

    Especially if you haven't done the Y, M, C and A with your arms while dancing to it!

    Он, наверное, имел ввиду ППС (патрульно-постовая служба). Я тоже никакого ПМС не знаю.

    Ты что, никогда не слышал, как говорят (о валюте) "по курсу ММВБ" или "по курсу ЦБ" (Центробанка) ?

    А я вот, что такое КВД не сразу вспомнил.
    Please, correct my mistakes, except for the cases I misspell something on purpose!

    ЛОЛ: Я вспомнил этот ответ из статей в "Огонеке". Они спросили юноше - "что такое СССР?"
    ЧТО ТАКОЕ СССР:
    чего-то я как раз с папой про Ленина читал. Ведь был такой - Ленин? Вроде бы СССР - это страна такая. Или не страна? Я вообще историю не очень люблю. В общем, скажу так: СССР - это бывшее государственное управление при правительстве Ленина.


    Ведь был такой -- Ленин?!?!?! Вроде бы СССР - это страна такая? Или не страна?

    God granted me the serenity to accept the things
    I cannot change
    Courage to change the things I can
    And wisdom to know the difference
