  • Holaaa
  • "OK" means (O)zero (K)killed.
    this expression has been used by the Britain army during the first or the second world war, notifying that they had executed their mission and nobody had been killed.
    thanks

  • O = Zero
    K = Killed


    When people were in the war, they used to say "we got Zero people killed this day", so that meant that everything was good, so, the short form to say things are right is saying O.K., which means zero killed.

  • I think you're wrong Carlos.
    That's a joke.
    Everything has been said on that matter on previous replies. Have an eye on it.
    No harm intended, eh.

    [i don't can you inform me please

     


    Dear himlebeny,


    If you can, you can.
    If you cannot, you can't or you cannot, but you never "do not can" because "to can" doesn't stand any other auxiliary verb. To can is a verb of power and power is self-sufficient.


    About the information you are asking for, go through the previous messages in this thread and you'll get it. I wish you the needed strenght to read through.


    See you later.
    Gee
