Very good idea posing this list. :!: It can be frustrating reading posts with jargon not understood

And zinnies and zpennies.
I haven't seen any canslaw, but rusty shreds of old metal roofing carpet most of the older sites I've been hitting. Makes you long for a pulltab or nail, after awhile.

So what would rusty roofing shreds be called?

Actually, the three common operating principles are BFO (Beat Frequency Oscillation), TR (Transmit/Receive) and PI (Pulse Induction). VLF is simply a frequency range in which some TR's are designed to operate. Not all, but most of the models operating in this range are called "VLF", and the term VLF was used to reference those models with the capability to adjust to cancel out, or ignore, the ground mineral signal.

In the glossary above, the VLF should be changed to describe "Very-Low Frequency .. "Generally, a ground cancelling mode of operation."

Here's one that started going around last summer... "bling, bling" or "blingy."

Anybody want to define that? Is it a special kind of junk jewelry?

I thought bling was big jewlery (fake or real), but I am a redneck. Could be wrong.

Red face "tot"

I keep seeing "tot" used in the different forums. I'm sure you can tell how new I am, but I'm going to ask it anyway.....WHAT does it stand for? All I could think of was "type of turf"!
