    Or, more specifically, not being familiar with the abbreviation of one of, if not the most culturally significant, far reaching and influential happenings of the 20th century is alarming to the point of comment at the very least and at worst is an indictment on your generation and the education you receive and/or are receptive to. One would at least have assumed that popular culture and the plethora of movies produced that either are about that war or address that war in some way (all of which would have at one point included the abbreviation of the word Vietnam). And we're not talking about little indie movies here, check out this list - Tropic Thunder, Platoon, Forrest Gump, Apocalypse Now, Full Metal Jacket, any Rambo movie, Taxi Driver, The Deer Hunter, Good Morning Vietnam, The Expendables, Operation Dumbo Drop, We Were Soldiers - the list goes on. So to say that some might find your unfamiliarity with that expression surprising is actually not surprising at all.

    Wow we're still going on about this. Lol

    I'm aware of the Vietnam war, sure I'm not a genius like you but it was like 3am, here on the Internet, words are said for anything so I wasn't sure and clearly I should have known because of the uproar caused. Woopty doo

    What uproar? What are you even talking about? I'm just trying to educate you. But if this is the attitude that your generation takes to having information shared with them, then holy cow man, how do you kids get by?

    Really? I thought it was earbuds, ipads and telling people to go to hell. Your version is way too 90's. And too nice.
