Siglas y curiosidades

No todo el mundo lo sabe, pero el conocido S.O.S. inconfundible en código Morse (tres puntos, tres rayas y tres puntos) significa "save our souls". Se dice que el archicélebre O.K. viene de una ocasión en que un importante pero iletrado personaje quiso abreviar la expresión "all right", confundiendo a y o y escribiendo una r que más parecía k (nada que ver con K.O., que significa "knock out"). Fuck es "Fornication Under Consent of the King", permiso necesario en cierto tiempo y lugar para entregarse a los deberes maritales. Laser: "Light Amplification By Stimulated Emission of Radiation". Radar: "Radio Detection And Ranging". El inolvidable cerebro del Discovery en "2001: Una Odisea Espacial" de Kubrick y Clarke recibió el nombre de Hal, que significa "Heuristically-programmed Algorithmic Computer". Si andamos el abecedario inglés una letra hacia adelante, obtenemos I.B.M. Casualidad pura y neta, según el propio Clarke. En español tenemos los lexicalizados RENFE ("Red Nacional de Ferrocarriles Españoles") y ONCE ("Organización Nacional de Ciegos de España"). Fuente para estos acrónimos, y otros cuantos miles: esta página.
