Gunny G: Now Grok This!
Grok? What the hell is grok?
In today’s vernacular, grok means simply and basically, to understand or “get it” — do you get it now?
Do you get it? was a slang term of the pre-WWII movies, etc. Now in 2008 it has again become a popular buzzword with the younger crowd and also those older dinosaurs who remember it from earlier times. Getting it was again resurrected during the 1970s with the est seminars (see below), though not in exactly the same way as previously.
So we all know, or think we know, the meaning of getting it, but grok means a bit more than what we usually think of as just getting it, so for a more thorough meaning of grok one must refer to Stranger In A Strange Land….
Gunny G: Hand Signal, Hand Salutes. etc.
Already it appears this new “hand signal,” should it catch on, may become another bs issue of the online herd among those who cannot grok even the most simple of things.
