FYI. A three letter abbreviation of "For your information." It's often used when correcting people or clearing up misconceptions. "You're stupid" "I got all A's FYI" but then I thought, what if I used it randomly, as an ice breaker. I could go up to someone and say "FYI Karoke means 'empty orchestra' in Japanese." Normally one would be inclined to ask why you randomly walked up to them and shared this random fact but with our new way of looking at FYI it solves that. You start off by telling them why, it's for their information! I mean hey, it's not "For your benefit" or "For your interests" and information is such a general word that the options are limitless.
