Did anyone know that the term LASER was an acronym for "Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation"?!
Or am I the only one who didn't know this:confused:

They were originally going to go with calling it "PEW PEW PEW!" but it was not professional enough, and their bosses made them go back and choose something else.
