Breathing Valuable Air. Amusing and highly efficient, and transferable to a wide variety of situations. Ack KT. Widely used acronym used by party hosts and operators of unlicensed restaurants, instructing or requesting guests to bring drink, rather than expect it to be provided or available for purchase at the venue. There are other variations, for example, Bring Your Own Beef for barbeques , Bring Your Own Bagels gatherings of Jewish folk, or anyone really who likes bagels , and Bring Your Own Bag s for shops keen to reduce use of free carrier bags.
It has been suggested that Bring Your Own Basket s for picnics was an older version of the term although this seems not to be substantiated, and frankly I doubt it will be because the notion is a little bit daft. Thanks P Bruton. Consumer To Consumer.

Can't Add, Doesn't Even Try. Assessment acronym for the numerically and motivationally challenged. Cover All Possibilities. Versatile training and planning acronym. Thanks L Woodhouse. The code is unique and random and distorted so that computers hopefully cannot read and re-use it, which guards websites against mischievous or criminal automated attack. The acronym reflects its technical meaning and origins, and also reflects its purpose, which while primarily acting as a security device, also enables the 'capture' of data. The Turing test element refers to the exceptional English mathematician and computer scientist Alan Turing and his theory and test work, first published in , dealing with artificial intelligence and comparisons between human and computer 'thinking' capabilities.
Alan Turing was a fascinating character in his own right - regarded as a founder of computer science, he was part of the famous and pivotal codebreaking team at Bletchley Park in the Second World War, and subsequently went on to pioneer the development of early computers and artificial intelligence.
Shamefully his country later saw fit to prosecute and convict him for being a homosexual, following which he committed suicide in , aged forty-one. Today Britain is very keen to patronise and impose our holier than thou ideas on the developing world. As with any situation where one seeks influence and change, perhaps a little more humility and awareness of our own past and ongoing failings would be more constructive.
Counselling, Advice, Referral, Assessment and Throughcare. The term sometimes understandably mistaken to be CARROT also extends to the assistance and workers involved in the delivery of prisoner drug abuse treatment and rehabilitation. The acronym does not signify a sequential process, but instead the elements contained within it.
The actual sequence would typically place the Assessment element ahead of Advice and Referral, but the resulting CAART was presumably not memorable enough, or perhaps too close to the slang term 'cart', meaning prison or gallows, derived from the the late s when horse-drawn carts were used for prisoner transport, and which is the origin of the modern expression 'in the cart' meaning to be in trouble or difficulty.
The element called Throughcare might alternatively be represented as Aftercare after release. We must assume that Throughcare was preferred because devising a useful mnemonic with three A's, a C and and R would have been impossible. There is an interesting lesson in this, aside from illustrating the elements of a rehabilitation process, namely that a good acronym should be memorable and distinct in its abbreviated and full form, and unfortunately CARAT is not, despite the very worthy aims and activities which underpin it.
Cover Arse, Remain Employed. Thanks P Halstead. Computer Assisted Self-Help. An acronym for the modern age. Computer-based methods for self-improvement, even therapy, are becoming increasingly viable, effective and common. Actually, and logically, Businessballs is a Computer Assisted Self-Help website, despite its limited functionality.

Gavottes - Maison Kaprélian
The additional ongoing development of artificial intelligence and its incorporation within computer-based applications will ensure that CASH websites and services become progressively sophisticated and widespread, across many different fields, from stress-management to life-change, marriage guidance to addictions counselling, and just about any other attitudinal or behavioural change you can imagine.
