Small Question on the Quarantine
« on: January 27, 2011, 06:29:22 AM »
Good Apocalypse to all.

The name of the Quarantine is:
Specialist [Last Name], [First Name] [MI].

Here in Italy there is a small fuss about what "MI" really means.
Some think that it means Mobile Infantry, others read it as "Middle Initial" so the name of the Quarantine should be "Specialist Donovan, Jenny S."

Can some of you america-born guys enlighten us dumb european about your funny abbreviations? ;-)

Thank you all.
Ciao, I'm Ezio, from Italy.
I'm sorry for my bad english... I'll keep studying ;-)

Middle initial.
A player of mine playing a gunlugger - "So now that I took infinite knives, I'm setting up a knife store." Me - "....what?" Him - "Yeah, I figure with no overhead, I'm gonna make a pretty nice profit." Me - "......"

If a person has no middle name, their middle name/initial is written as NMI, for No Middle Initial.

Edit: I don't know the percentages of people who don't have middle names, though. Probably less than 10% of Americans, at a guess.

In Italy it's the exact opposite ^^
The last bit of information is wonderful.
