Redefining Internet Slang

The other day, I asked on facebook what FTW meant because my son's definition (For The Win) was very different from what I understood the abbreviation to mean (#&$% the World).

Due to that, I've realized that simple letters might mean very different things to different people and that we can totally change things up if we want.

So, let's do that. Here are some "popular" (according to the internet) web abbreviations and other suggested uses.

For My Landlord (in regard to rent). Example: I just got my paycheck FML
