I'm curious. I've seen the letters "FTW" in various places on the Internet but when I try to find what they mean I get either "For The Win" (which I don't understand) or F*** The World (which I do).

What does it mean? :?


When I use it I mean "For The Win"...I should really just use an ordinary adjective but I've been on too many forums and have picked up bad habits...

Urban Dictionary says:
(2)English Translation: For the win.
/phrase/
/adjective/
-\A term which can be originated to a popular game show "HollyWood Squares" when , on the final move contestants would announce their move was "For the win".
-\Used oftenly when giving importance to a specific noun.(ei. "My computer, FTW")

I've never forgiven Patricia Cornwell for not only accusuing Walter Sickert of being Jack the Ripper :roll: but destroying at least one of his paintings in a loony attempt to prove it. :x

There's LOL and *BOL* (bursts out laughing) now, too, which sometimes gets * for actions for some unknown reason while LOL doesn't.

C'mon people. Where is the love?


I like the first four in the Brentford Trilogy and the tales of Hugo Rune, especially the Brightonomicon.
