    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Common terms used (which i don't know)

    Hello all,
    I read your forums almost every day and I keep seeing terms that everyone seems to know that I was hoping someone could elaborate on for me. I have searched the forums but did not find anything.

    _ing _un - What does this mean?

    LARP(ing) - sounds like a fictitious creature that hangs with unicorns.

    And go ahead and throw in some terms that I might have missed. I understand what a McDojo is, but it might be helpful for someone to define terms like this for us newbs.
    thank you.

    Urban Dictionary can answer most 1337 Sp34k questions, Bullshido.com is working on a glossary of BS Forum specific ones.

    On a side note, I was reading the McDojo wikki on the .org side.
    Isn't the 'Superhuman feats' entry more Bullshido than McDojo? It seems misplaced.
    The Qualifications entry seems also to lean towards Bullshido. IE. Osiris' school is a commercial school (aka McDojo), but he's a very qualified instructor from everything I've been able to garner. I would think the fraud credentials part would be strictly Bullshido, not McDojo (although a school could easily be both).

    Ps. Not meaning to single out Osiris, he's simply the first valid ass-kicking commercial school owner that popped into my mind.

    Live Action Role-Playing - Just what it sounds like. Often entails dressing up in costume and pretending to fight.

    Kat describes LARPers rather well here...

Some LARPers will go so far as to pretend to have magic powers.

    For example.
