Indeed. Instead you end up looking like a hipster poseur.
Nah. Most hipsters couldn't afford them after paying for Vegan certified artisanal free-range tomatoes, plus I don't own enough flannel shirts and can't grow a long enough beard.

Hey there, guy on the off-grid living group -- no, English isn't your first language and yes, "cu" is the abbreviation for cubic and "m" is the abbreviation for meters, but please please please stop referring to the capacity of your tanks as "1.5 cum"

I am tempted to write the International Organization for Standardization and suggest cum be declared the official shorthand for cubic meter.

Wrong again dhex. It's 1500 liters.
Or maybe a "litre" is 136 4/11 liters in dhex speak.

Yeah, everyone knows that volume of a 'cum' is not a cubic meter but about ten cubic centimeters.

Yes, but that's the small size. The medium and large sizes are magna cum and summa cum.

Those are a rich mine of malapropisms. In the last couple days we've heard people say that a lack of progress in the case has left them "fustrated" and "flustrated", and one guy was asked if anyone could "clobberate" his alibi.

Keep the beans, rice, flour and pasta up high where the kids can't get to them, keep the booze and sugar down low where they can. :D

Is that pronounced extra-poolate, or extra-pullate?
