GI - a person who " gets it", also, the highest form of intelligent life you will ever see on this or any other forum (on this planet anyway.)

DGI - "don't get it", there are still a few of those types out there, but there ranks are dwindling fast.

DWGI - "don't want to get it", these are the folks to look out for. They got there 401K's, SUV's, corporate jobs, golf, to hold onto, don't confuse them with the facts, however, watch out for these brainiacs if they ever do wake up, for they have the most money to spend but also the most to lose, so, you'll get run over as they try to get what you want!!! G.I. ???

Mudwrestling - a full body contact sport that you will be doing with K.O.S. either before or after the rollover if your female and lather up well. He seems to like the smarter of the G.I.'s but probably isn't picky at this late date!!!

Polly - one who just thinks all is well, no problemo, wears Gucci loafers in his Bimmer while driving to the beachhouse to suck up some Latte', afterwards boots up and rails on all the doomers on the TB2K site for not believing in the American dream of eternal prosperity and stock market euphoria!!

Hoarding - not a term used on this forum, replaced with this phrase: establishing and implementing a forward looking resource acquisition and storage paradigm !!

This list is a start. There will be others to add to it and fine tune accordingly.
