OK, here's another question about initials.

In the military, what is a QRF?

Bonus question for an extra $0: Why is a Humvee called a Humvee? What set of words did that originate from?

When my Dad was getting his controlled airspace plane ticket... when he was at Brisbane Airport,they kept talking about the BRT and it was the Radar building..... He finally asked his teacher what it was, it was the "Big Round Thing" it was the actual traffic controllers that called it that :)

No wonder there are so many ridiculous cross-arguments going on all time. Nobody is clear.. like what is wrong with some precision. ?

I actually just searched and saw what you said about VHS... but the reference is wikipedia.

I actually looked on the couple of actual real VHS cassettes I still have ....

and it said Video High Standard. So I dispute your answer. I believe it is incorrect.. and often stukk on wikipedia is just plain wrong.

So I have physical evidence, and you have wikipedia.

GUESS who is actually correct.?

VHS (short for Video Home System)[1][2][3] is a standard for consumer-level analog video recording on tape cassettes. Developed by Victor Company of Japan (JVC) in the early 1970s, it was released in Japan on September 9, 1976, and in the United States on August 23, 1977

from another link

VHS The Video Home System is a consumer-level analog recording videotape-based cassette standard developed by Victor Company (JVC) of Japan


the VHS standard was made by JVC.... just because another company decided to put a different name on their disc doesn't change the Standard, they just named their product with the same Initials..
