Another Subtle Joke Trampled. Coined by Adrian I believe.
I thought I had it figured ...

Feel free to point and laugh.

Shamelessly borrowed from the Bad Science forum.
Um?


OP, 2007
I didn't understand what winjim meant when he posted that acronym yesterday.
It wasn't in the forum list but Cosmicbike knew the answer.
Thinking I probably wasn't the only one who might want to look it up, I posted it in here and also edited the original post to add it there too.

It's the number of bikes you need, where N is the number of bikes you have.
The other metric is S-1, where S is the number of bikes where your partner would leave you!

It's cropped up before, a few pages back.

I'm not entirely sure but I think it means Adrain Said Just That.

I could of course be totally wrong, and everyone will point and laugh.
It was used by Adrian but it meant "another subtle joke trampled".

I haven't read this whole thread but hopefully I'm not the first to point out that these are not all acronyms but mostly abbreviations. An acronym is where the initials are read as a word, such as RAM, radar, NATO or laser.

I'd love to pretend that I was making a subtle joke, and that therefore you had just trampled on it.

But I wasn't. I was just wrong.
