In a few means that you don't know in how time an event will occur.
For example: " Yo, do you know when she will come"

" Yeah I think she's gonna be here **in a few**

Short for "few people understand." Refers to a perspective an individual thinks is important but not enough people are aware of.

Used as a meme in cryptocurrency communities.

Ethereum is rewriting the financial system, few people understand.

Generally means three. No less than three can be slightly more. Three is the most common number associated with few.

A value between 3-6, but is often used informally to describe any value above 1.

A couple = 2
Several= 7 or more (sev-eral—sev-en)
A few = the range between several and a few
TuanTunc: I don’t know why the fuck people in America commonly use few as their go to bullshit number. Like how fucking much is a few?

Wuani (has lisp): if those silly citizens have any sense, then they should define a few as between 3-6, as a couple is 2, and several is based off seven, it means seven or more.

TuanTunc: isn’t that going under the assumption that all these terms are independent from each other and that all rules and terms English check and balance each other?
