Prancercise:  another one I came upon by accident, Prancerising is having its 5 minutes of fame on YouTube (go and do a search, I know you want to!). Wikipedia bills it as a holistic fitness method based on “a springy, rhythmic way of moving forward, similar to a horse’s gait and ideally induced by elation”.  It was created by an American woman, Joanna Rohrback and has been compared to the low-impact aerobics that were popularized by 1980s workout videos.

PAW: used by teenagers to indicate that parents are watching.

TIL: When you come across some information that isn’t new but is new to you, so you share it then add the tag TIL – “today I learned”.

TIA:  thanks in advance.  Personally, I really dislike the use of this one as if you can’t be bothered to write it in full then you don’t come across as being thankful.
