am new, have already said this - but what does BO mean?

I tried the search engine, but you need at least 3 characters to get even a chance of a hit ... that stymied my "IQ" search too ...:head
BO = Black out (loss of consciousness)
Samba = LMC = loss of motor control = shaking when you come up (close to black out)

Someone wrote a FAQ about this somewhere.

Here is the list I think Eric was referring to, I can't find the actual thread but this should help to start with . There are lots of terms that are confusing but the good news about this forum is that there are more people willing to help you on this forum than there are terms to understand, so generally you will get an answer to any question you ask.

Oh yeah.....There are no stupid questions so ask if you don't know, the worst that will happen is a no reply and that doesn't hurt much!
