FTW is a commonly used term nowadays among the youth of the internet. Most people view it as, "For the Win". This transliteration of this acronym, however, is in every way, false. It dates back to the days of the ancient Eskimos, and their favorite sport. The usage of this term is understandably mixed up, as it may have seemed like a cheer to the early Alaskan settlers that sailed from Guatemala.

As the alaskan Eskimos divulged themselves in this recreational activity, many of them would cheer on their comrades, "FTW!"

To the English speaking Guatemalans, they ay have interpreted it as, "For the Win", however it's true definition using the literal translation from its Chinese roots, is "FLIP THE WALRUS", as indeed, the Eskimaean sport of using raw strength and pieces of drift wood to flip walruses lying on a beach was quite popular in that day.

So the definition, "For the Win" is fallacious.

FTW. verb. early chinese, : "Flip the Walrus", it can also mean the turning over of other various aquatic animals.

Now you know the real story of FTW.
1. "It's too heavy! I can't lift it!" said the eskimo Junjube, as he attempted to flip his walrus. Kairou, his lover shouted to him, "FTW!!" (Flip

2. Whalers on a ship are attempting to turn over their catch. "FTW!!" (Flip the Whale)

3. A rather obese woman has fallen on her back. A child cries out for help. "FTW!!" (Flip the ((fat)) woman)

FTW = first the wictory!

Oh poor souls who think FTW means For The Win! jami93, a Finnish boy (*cough*a troll*cough*) who often comments to a webcomic Sosiaalisesti Rajoittuneet has told us the REAL meaning of FTW.
"No no no, when I said ftw, I meant first the wictory! For the win doesn't make ANY sense at all"
