I'm in a laugh deficit mode at the moment. So many of you have been with our brothers and sisters in foreign military organizations? What slang did you think hit the mark?

I'll start with Cambodia. I'd eat lunch frequently at the French Military Liaison Mission in Phnom Penh. They'd have meat that you didn't have to worry about. I was hanging swapping sea stories with some Brit officers. Somewhere along the line I said "GD REMFS!". The Brit Bird asked what that meant. When I told him his response was:

"You Colonials have such a way with words. We call them TIPs. Tactically Insignificant Personnel."

Fire when ready Gridley.

I tend to use "Operator Head Space and Timing." My wife hates it when I use that one, since she doesn't understand it.

I love using "Schwerpunkt" and watching the quizzical looks. I think they have figured out what it means via context now.
