    Well , I was talking to a friend yesterday.. And I quoted a post saying something like ,

    "Super Smash Bros. FTW!!!!"
    Then he said.. " This guy is stupid .. Super Smash Bros. is a great game! "
    I answerd : "Thats exactly what he said.. Thats why there is FTW in there.."
    He said : " Wait.. What is FTW?"
    I answerd : "For the win!!!!!!!!!"
    He said : " WHAT?! *laughed* That would explain soo many problems.. "
    I answerd : "What do you meen by that?"
    He said : " I thought FTW is F**k the what ... "
    I laughed.. soo hard : "Like WTF? "

    Many people use "FTW" as a mocking derivation of "WTF", for a fact. You just have to go to /b/ and see. I have actually included FTW as a variation for WTF and "For The Win" as well on a speech I made some months ago about /b/ at my official languages school here at Spain.

    Edit: And I recorded it [​IMG] I'm still wondering if I should upload such enclearing document on youtube, fearful of the btards and anonymous response... Anyone minds blurring my face? [​IMG]

    @Vater Unser:
    Well, most people were talking about how amazing their shephard-controlled 2 week stance in another country was (a scholarship some people get, which I got, and which is like a camp... pretty boring to hear all those people who never got out of their country telling how bad food was at the canteen). So I decided to go for something that at least involved some research and was harder than "Food was bad, but it was very FUN" [​IMG]

    I've always known it to be "for the win", I do believe. Although I did once see something about someone thinking it meant "fuck the world", so the term was banned from some school. I may not be remembering many of the details correctly, but meh. [​IMG]

    Urza, it's comments like that that will put this topic in the testing area. This is a legitimate discussion about a popular internet meme. Whereas your comment is off-topic to the point of spam. [​IMG]

    First of all, this is not an "internet meme". We call these acronyms.

    If you don't see the OP as testing area material, then I seriously question your judge of value.

    As you can see an internet meme is by definition a fad that spreads through the internet. So terms like "pwned", "ftw", etc... are all memes. And saying "in b4 testing area" doesn't contribute to a topic in the least. It really only serves to push the topic on a downward spiral into spammy madness. It's essentially the mid-topic version of "first post!". Now back to the topic at hand~ [​IMG]

    Except the phrases "what the fuck" and "for the win" were used, and popular, before their prevalence on the internet.

    If a mod feels this topic wasn't originally something worthy of the term "spam", he can feel free to delete my posts.
