More useful aviation acronyms or abbreviations

These useful aviation acronyms or abbreviations come courtesy of Captain Smithy who recently posted them on PPRuNe (Professional Pilots Rumour Network):

SNAFU – Situation Normal, All F’ked Up (Usually referencing mainly to EASA matters)
TAUFU – Totally And Utterly F’ked Up (As above)
FUBAR – F’ked Up Beyond Any Recognition (Referencing the subject of an in-depth AAIB report, or perhaps the aftermath of a person/animal’s rather messy encounter with a moving propeller , etc.)
BOHICA – Bend Over, Here It Comes Again (Metaphorically speaking, what happens to pilots if something bad happens on a regular occurrence, e.g retribution from the CAA for busting CAS, EASA making more silly rules, landing fees/AVGAS increasing in price again, receiving a bollocking from the CFI after a bad incident, a bollocking from the girlfriend/wife for spending more time/money on flying than with her , etc.)
SUSFU – Situation Unchanged, Still F’ked Up (Again, usually applies to EASA matters)
