First off, Welcome to my blog, Extremo Bernardo, where I will post about whatever the hell I like (or what I dislike).
My name is Bernando, and I would give you some background information about myself, but I'd have to kill molest you, and nobody wants that.

On the topic of molestation, you should know the difference between acronyms and abbreviations:

A bunch of letters which stand for something, and are spoken by saying each letter.
Examples: FBI, ATM, PVC, ABS, CSIRO and etcetera.

A bunch of letter which stand for something and are spoken by pronouncing the letters as if they are a word.
Examples: Scuba (Self contained underwater breathing apparatus), Laser (Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation) or AIDS (acquired immune deficiency syndrome).

Now that you know, you have no excuses. Acronym sure is a cooler word, but being wrong is uncool. Also note that an acronym is a type of abbreviation, but the inverse is not true.

Have a delicious day!
