"Snappy elastic backronym"
I voted for that!
The results of our reader poll are in, and we're delighted to report that our Low Orbit Helium Assisted Navigator (LOHAN) doomsday box will forthwith be officially known as the Big Red Abort Switch To Release Aerial Payload, aka BRASTRAP. Dave Akerman's emergency cut-down box So, it's congratulations to reader Steve Davis …
Is anyone else concerned about the use of this backronym (which I voted for BTW)?
My concern is centred on the well known inability of the male of the species to actually undo the average brastrap.
I feel that the task of firing the BRASTRAP (devine deity of choice forbid) should be allocated to a lady person to ensure that the whole thing comes off smoothly.
Fully expected the WARRANTY VOID IF BROKEN sticker of the RockBLOCK Iridium satellite comms unit Steve Davis won to be broken.
That might have been in the proper low-budget spirit of the project to give used/broken/reverse-engineered prizes. Even if the prize was new in the box, show a picture of a used/damaged item. :-)
