LCVG..

So I searched the forums and could not find any information on what LCVG stands for.

 

The most prominent definition when googled is the Liquid Cooling and Ventilation Garment worn by astronauts. Is this where the name comes from?

 

How long has the site been around? I don't know why it matters. Perhaps because I like history, and wanted to get some background and history of LCVG.com :)

Precisely. Made using nylon tricot and spandex, the LCVG is basically a long underwear which covers the entire body, not just the legs. Laced with thin plastic tubes, cool water is allowed to flow through the suit using these tubes in order to remove heat produced by astronaut. The cooling water can either come from the astronaut's backpack or also an umbilical cord.

Now that it's been explained, I think it is easy to see why this site was named LCVG.com.

You know, I've been wondering the same damned thing for months now, but I've been too afraid to ask about it, simply because I fear that if I do, they'll beat the crap out of me. ;)

 

Would any of you smart Owner-type fellas like to answer this call?

No, not really.

 

That actually makes no sense at all.

 

A better explanation would be, "I like space suits and though LCVG was a cool acronym."

 

But some weird metophoric relationship between fancy long underpants for spacemen and gaming is kind of a let down...

 

:bang:

A friend of mine asked me that too, when I pointed him to this forum. I told him I had no idea, but the first suggestions I could come up with were:

 

Life Consists of Video Games

 

or

 

Life Controlled by Video Games

 

As evidenced by what Scott posted in the linked thread, neither was the true answer. It seemed obvious that the VG would stand for either "video game(s)" or "video gamer(s)", and I can see now that it does.

 

Hmm, just having some fun with it now, some other possibilities:

 

Lovers of Console Video Games

Liquid-Cooled Video Gamers

Leafy Cabbage is Very Good

Lameass Cadaver Vomit Galore

Life Consists of Video Games

 

I actually like that. The original intention was "Lucid Console Video Games" which is something Kelley and I discussed way back when. After Scott jumped onboard we started joking around and calling it "Latino Caucasion Video Games". In all honesty it means little much in the way that 'IGN" means nothing now etc. It simply sounded good to me as an address in general. I rather like "Life Consists of Video Games" though. Mind if I use that? :D

By all means! I know it essentially describes my existence - and I'm sure I'm not alone here. :)

 

Lameass Cadaver Vomit Galore

This one was inspired by our less-than-stellar foray into the Positron Task Force mission. I hope I never have to see that much puke at one time again... sickie.gif
