Feeling Really Dumb!

I've just joined this forum this evening and I keep seeing something over and over that I don't understand.

Can someone please tell me what TNT means?

I am sure I will be having one of those DUH moments when I find out.

Thanks for not laughing too hard

You are very Welcome!

That wasn't dumb, it would have been dumb if you hadn't asked!

Don't feel stupid!
I did a "pardon my ignorance" (PMI) and asked similar questions, am thinking Taxlady posted FAQ from the original website. Very helpful. Since I use IPad, we don't see all the stuff on the regular site.

Everyone makes you feel welcome, and all have a strangely bizarre sense of humor which I love! Welcome!

I agree with Fiona; the only dumb question is the one you don't ask.

I spin 180 degrees every time I log into DC.
Welcome, LMB! It'll all fall into place if you join in the fun.

I don't know. What about the 4th grader who, when I was teaching about Ferdinand Magellan and how he died in the Philippines in 1521, asked (in all seriousness), "Is he still dead?"

You should have answered, "I don't know, that was before I was born."

I would've smacked him upside the head for his stupid question, but we have Moderators and Admins to prevent that sort of thing.
