Acronyms Men Should Know

What does WD-40 Stand for?

0 Comments October 31

Can of WD-40The meaning of WD-40 is pretty simple, Water Displacement 40th Formula.

I have to say I was disappointed to learn the meaning of WD-40. The blue can of gods gift to everything has always been a staple in every man’s garage. So how could it have such a weak meaning? Water Displacement 40th Formula? As the story goes on the WD-40 website Rocket Chemical Company and three employees were attempting to create a line of rust-prevention solvents and degreasers for use in the aerospace industry. On the 40th attempt to creating a workable formula they came up with WD-40

Not that WD-40′s story is not valid, but I question if the 37th formula had been the right one would it be called WD-37? I tend to believe that at some point a marketing expert said, WD-40 rolls off the tongue a lot easier that WD-37, lets just change the name and make it our little secret.

Anyway, WD-40 has and always will be a true mans tool regardless if it means Water Displacement 40th Formula.

I “Hate” Dr Oz

This is a site for men, or more to the point, this is a site for men in relationships. Husbands, boyfriends and men that have to deal with the daily grind of life, and are then subject to the ensnaring power of Doctor Oz over our better half, the women in our lives.

Don’t get us wrong, we actually think Dr Oz is a great doctor, and we don’t hate him...specifically ☺
