View Full Version : What in the world is SMJ?

From time to time, people refer to us as SMJ. :confused:

It has always struck me as one of life's little mysteries, and then I move on since my hair (what's left) is on fire.

Three times today. Including one where it was used twice in the same note. Not as if W to M is an easy fat finger to make, but that's not a typo.

Anyone have any idea what SMJ is or where it comes from?

When I was at Leavenworth, one of our detractors referred to us as the Small Minds Journal. Does that fit context?

Over the years I've gotten SMJ instead of SWJ enough to make me notice and like you several times in one e-mail.

Here is a list so far:

SMJ Southern Medical Journal
SMJ Strategic Management Journal
SMJ Saber Marionette J (WinAMP skin)
SMJ subject matter jurisdiction
SMJ Summary Judgment (legal term)
SMJ Saudi Medical Journal
SMJ Scatman John (singer)
SMJ Songklanagarind Medical Journal (Prince of Songkla University, Thailand)
SMJ Smartjack (Hekimian)
SMJ Sweet Mother of Jesus

SMJ= Smallwars Manual Journal. I saw it wriiten that way a long time ago somewhere, so that would be my guess and that is all it is just a guess.

Perhaps it is a motor-skills thing.

SWJ = two keystrokes with the left ring finger and one keystroke with the right index finger
SMJ = one keystroke with the left ring finger and two keystrokes with the right index finger

I doubt many people make the mistake of typing SRJ or SOJ because those involve other fingers.

Of course, I've misplaced my tinfoil hat, so maybe there is a conspiracy behind all of this that is being shielded from me.:eek:

In grade school we would write JMJ on the top of our written assignments and draw a cross underneath. Jesus, Mary, and Joseph. SMJ Savior, Mary and Joseph?
