The EU

Google says the EU requires a notice of cookie use (by Google) and says they have posted a notice. I don't see it. If cookies bother you, go elsewhere. If the EU bothers you, emigrate. If you live outside the EU, don't go there.

Terminology Issues

For John, BLUFIn every group of people too large under existing coronavirus rules there is always someone who has a new word or a different use for a word you thought you knew.  Nothing to see here; just move along.

I was on an EMail amongst my two Brothers and their friends, with a discussion of an AAR—After Action Report.

I referred to AAR as an Acronym.  One of my Brothers' wisenheimer friends asked if it was an Acronym or if it was an Initialism.  An Initialism?  What kind of a woke expression is "Initialism"?  Yes, Initialism is a word in the Dictionary.

I could see the distinction based on pronounceable and not pronounceable, but not using a world like "Initialism".

By the way, based upon my personal experience with AARs, I pronounce it Arrrgh.
