    I'm sad to say I know at least 80 percent of them. Too much time spent online, no doubt.

      That would be beautiful if we were communicating anything of value.

      There is actually an argument floating around the internet that using acronyms makes us more efficient as it allows us to communicate more information with fewer keystrokes. There by giving us--definition of efficient--maximum productivity with minimum wasted effort or expense.

    For what it's worth, I got all the blue ones simply because I am a programmer and designer. I didn't know a good chunk of the orange ones, but that's because I tend to spell out everything I say. I can't help but feel that there's no linear approach to this, simply because people have different experiences and preferences.

    Also, the blue description at the end just seems needlessly rude. All the others aren't glowing compliments, but it just seems like that one devolved into stereotypes. It doesn't help that it's shorter than all the rest of them...

    Outside of that, this is very well done, and the facts along the edge were quite interesting to boot! =)
