How a person travels (frequently impromptu) who uses no special-affinity credit cards (that tie into retailers, hoteliers, etc.), keeps no priority accounts with hotel chains, does not accumulate airline miles, nor qualifies for rebates or discounts, nor contributes to add-a-dollar or round-it-up programs.
"When I travel I go where I want to go when I want to go. I don't travel often, but when I do I pay standard fare or phone ahead. I don't rack up hotel points, airline points, Amtrak points, cruise-ship points, department store points, major-league team points, hotel/motel points, rent-a-car points or charity points. I pay what I pay and if it's too much, I shop around or don't go. Nobody needs to know my password or log-in, and I don't get a dozen e-mails a week. I get bumps and privileges like you wouldn't believe. Nothing influences my choice of company or chain when I travel. That's called flying Priority None."

A scanlator is a person who performs scanlations, which are the unauthorized scanning + translation of a source work, usually a Japanese manga of some sort, into English for dissemination by e-mail or blog.

For more information, see scanlation.

.
"Who's the translator on this graphic novel? Or should I say 'scanlator'."

"Scanlator is the word, the person is called "Kuzzy" but there's no full name, e-mail or blog address. They prefer to keep it that way because what they're doing breaks international copyright laws, even in cases of works that have been sitting untranslated into English for years."

Abbreviation for "also known as," useful when defining terms that are known under two or more names:

Shortwave radio, a/k/a World Band radio; or

Taiwan a/k/a Formosa.

Also pseudonyms vis-a-vis given names:

Victoria Beckham a/k/a Victoria Adams and Posh Spice.

A simplified use has more recently emerged: simply to type the letters. omitting the slashes (a/k/a "virgules") in between -- it is rare that anyone would confuse "aka" with a word called something like "akk-uh" and "aka" is easier to type:

David Johansen aka Buster Poindexter.

Reginald Dwight aka Elton John.

But both spellings are currently in use:

Do you have any biographical information about writer George Orwell, a/k/a (or aka) Eric Blair?

Although an abbreviation, note that no period is required.

.
from a Wanted poster: Wanted: Johnny Breeze, a/k/a John Brahms, a/k/a John Briscoe, a/k/a John Buchanan . . .

Slightly old-fashioned term for what is usually today called a "Billy Club" or (UK) an officer's baton, a rodlike piece of wood, usually painted black, worn by police to strike or subdue suspects.

In the USA many registered, private security guards who are not licensed to carry firearms may carry a Night Stick.

Certain phallic implications are almost inevitable.

Slang for porno stories printed in softcore skin magazines, generally designed to provoke and encourage masturbation. (Such magazines, that combine the stories with nude pictorial spreads and other features, are often called "stroke books").
Ever since they stopped publishing MEN magazine, I've lost my favorite source of friction fiction.

A youngish man, usually gay, who has gotten quite fat but is neither old enough nor obese enough to qualify as a full-fledged "chub." Less insulting than the term "heifer" used sometimes to reference the same kind of individual.
"Joe may not quite be a "chubette," but with that paunch, his goatee and chest hair, he's a Bear by anyone's definition." If he gains much more weight he'll qualify for chubette. Moo! But chubby chasers will stand in line around the block to get to him.

Q: How many "chubettes" grow into full-time "chubs"?

A: They all do, unless they lose some weight and tone up; in which case they might pass for muscle bears.
