Separate names with a comma.

this reminds me of an article I read in a design mag a few years ago, titled 'Bullsh*t Bingo' about creatives 'verbose' tendencies
If I get a spare 5, I'll scan it in and post it...
haha...I'd love to see that...
I still sometimes confuse the hell out of people when I type 5M rather than 5,000.
That is a good find eyelikeart, thank you. I also liked the top phrases that they chose: "Shock-and-awe," the phrase the U.S. military used to describe the type of campaign it would wage in Iraq, topped other Iraq-related terms like "rush to war," "weapons of mass destruction" and "spider-hole" as the top phrase of 2003.
I'm still just a little confused eyelikeart, to me 5M would mean 5 million. When you typed the 5,000, that means 5 thousand.
Especially when they expect 5,000 to be 5k, of course my Roman numeral convertor is broken so I can't check how M + M + M + M + M is written.
It started as an adjective, moved to verb then noun. It's a ghastly word, one that we should immediately dump. I think the Fox News think tank members (<-oxymoron!) should be destroyed. (Along with 80% of their hosts)
your wish is my....
oh dude....that's awesome!
It's a printing term.
How To Talk Like A Printer
The article made a lot of sense, most I have heard before when ordering a print job. Now I have learned something new today that 5M is 5 thousand. Hopefully it's trivia that I can remember!
Indeed that article was intresting.
Tho I doubt printers get things in groupings of 500 that is way to large.
