    I possibly could be of help, although you'd have to wait quite a while, as my team won't be starting to build a robot until school starts.

    Thats not what urban dictionary says. It has a much more accurate definition for the context the op used the word "scrim" in.

    I'd be down to scrim, my robot needs another week or so and then it should be ready to go, so any time after that would work for me.

    I'd be happy to skrim, I probably need a few more weeks, but I'd be happy after that

    Referenced from Merriam-Webster Dictionary:

    Definition of scrimmage:
    [...]
    2. a : the interplay between two football teams that begins with the snap of the ball and continues until the ball is dead
    b : practice play (as in football or basketball) between two squads

    Colloquially, "scrim" is used as a short-hand abbreviation of "scrimmage". Note that, by definition, in football, a scrimmage is practice play. However, it is commonly used within the scopes of various other sports and activites - in this case, robotics.

    May I suggest that you read the whole thread before contributing? It is entirely possible that I understood the first post, but wanted to encourage You Young People to use proper English to talk reel gud and stuph.

    May I suggest that you perhaps consider that I had actually read the entirety of the thread prior to posting? It is entirely possible - and indeed the truth of the situation - that I understood, at least to a margin sufficient enough to qualify a response, your message. As well, I would like you to consider that, while maintaining a certain level of formality in one's writing is required to ensure it is comprehensible, the shortening and alteration of words in colloquial speak/writing should be perfectly acceptable, especially considering that most of us aren't interested in writing well-thought, refined essays with sophisticated vocabulary but rather just want to get our points across. I find your assertion that we aren't using "proper English" rather egregious considering that "proper" is relative to the circumstances and that using the word "scrim" is not even comparable to "talk reel gud and stuph" (which is an absurd exaggeration of online conversation despite its ability to be understood perfectly well). I would also like to point out that even in your advocation for the usage of proper English, you were unable to maintain that same expectation for the two sentences you typed. "You Young People" is not a proper noun and does not need to be capitalized. While I understand that mistakes can happen, I find it rather ironic that you contradicted your own standards within two sentences.

  20. @Rick TYler I thought your original post and your response (defining humor) was pretty funny and pretty inoffensive. I actually laughed when I read your second one. :)

    That said, Advanced Placement United States History is usually referred to as APUSH in high school. It's a lot shorter and saves everyone a lot of time. I don't see anything wrong with using imperfect English as long as everyone understands what you mean. "APUSH" isn't a word, but it saves us all 9 syllables.

    @littlebro5 relax my man :P
