|In Chankardianland, we
use a lot of private jargons. They all stem from practical and frequent
needs. These jargons afford us expediency, precision and
Over the years, we even evolved to developing an elaborate version of
comprehensive lingo for Radio (voice) and Text messaging, complete with
custom cipher that can be performed (both encrypt & decrypt) in the head,
in near-real-time, and
still provides a relatively high level of disguise to the non-experts in
"declassify" each private jargon (because I couldn't resist the
urge to "leak" it out by using it in an article), I'll add them here. Of
course, 99% of our actual practical codes and jargons will remain private. Only a few of
the casual, goofy ones will ever be listed.

Chankardian speaks, as an "eloquent" version of a common expression to
sneer at something for being worthless nonsense.
remain your not-so-humble servant
Twisted version of Shakespearian speaks, modified to account for the fact that in
Chankardian thinking, an unconditionally humble servant is
considered an assakyssa, and therefore self-serving, dishonest and
A decidedly "low class" and rebellious way of
A group of aspullas, who speak with a fork
tongue, give nonsensical responses, due to diabolical agenda or sheer
ineptitude. It's an allusion to the dark cavity from which they retrieve
most of their answers.

BAMS: Below Average Monkey Score
There are many subjects in which majority of the people will inevitably
exact wrong answers
in a multiple-choice questionnaire, resulting in a near-zero score, worse
than random answers. This consistency is due to pervasive misconceptions,
through misinformation and disinformation. History and sciences are perfect examples,
among the U.S. populace. This phenomenon occurs in every non-trivial topic
among IT practitioners.

This goes to show that his viscosity is right up there with volcanic lava.
Note: In science, viscosity is the property of a
fluid that resists the force tending to cause the fluid to flow. In plain
English: high viscosity = "thick."

Such are the foundations of decent human beings. Lacking of worldly

lead one to resort to atrocities and destructions, often unwittingly.

blood, sweat & tears
Chankardian often refer to BST, believed to be the core ingredients of every meaningful
endeavor. We recognize the BST involved in everything that others
performed. Note that in the normal course of IT operations,
where hardware is concern, blood takes on literal meaning, not metaphorical.
Cuts and other injuries are fairly common.

Our sanitized version of the military jargon. The original version is
along the line of "foul" up beyond all repairs.
Interestingly, a variant spelled "foobar" has
been circulating in programmer circles. In sample codes, it's customary for
the user to enter "foo" and the program will respond with "bar"
and so on...
