Not everyone has a microwave but I like acronyms as well as the next person.

 

 I like acronyms too but I am pedantic enough to believe that if you can't pronounce it as a new word (NATO, SNAFU) it isn't an acronym it's an initialism.

The military often finds weird ways to "say" acronyms that should be unpronounceable.

Tried fresh broccoli for the first time last night.  It was packaged with butter.  I gave it one minute, then a rest of 8-10, then more minutes until it puffed (didn't time it, but about 3 minutes).  It was edible, but regular steamed broccoli is much better.  So for me, this method fails on fresh broccoli.
