BSotS Vernacular

Here at BSotS, we enjoy a certain form of communication. Call it... English. Or gibberish. So for those who are new or struggling to understand some of the word vomit that's thrown around here, this is your guide.

I suggest you print it out or find some way to have it have it forever imprinted in you brain because no one will explain this to you ever again.
