Today I was shown several ditloids, most were pretty easy but there were 3 I couldn't get. A ditloid for anyone who doesn't know, is an abbreviation of (usually) a saying. For example: 13IABD = 13 in a baker's dozen, or 5FOAH = 5 fingers on a hand. The first three of the following I couldn't get, and the rest are just for fun-

1. 2x2TAWOTA
2. 57HV
3. 6WOHTE
4. 12SOTZ
5. SWAT7D
6. 3BM
7. 100YIAC

Thanks guys, would never have been able to get any of them. Anyone want to try the other four, they're a lot easier than the first few.

@DrewDad,
to be fair, I probably have the ark on the brain after listening to gunga explain that the big flood trumps carbon dating.

silly science amuses me...

@Edsterr,
Heck. I misread 5 and thought I had it as 6 sides on a cube....

I've seen 3. written as 9PITSS, and 8PITSS for a while (poor Pluto), but why is it 7PITSS?

@Lustig Andrei,
That makes more sense. Not sure what I was thinking of though.
