R U (e.g. Are you) JASSD about JACD or do you have a case of JAID and JACBUS?

Will RAID RAIN on your cloud parade?

For those who like to keep up on buzzwords (for buzzword bingo) and acronyms, perhaps even FTW (e.g. For the Win), here are some old and new, fun and real ones to ponder.

As to which are real or new, fun or old, I will leave that up to you.
