Wife Acceptance Factor (WAF).

Posted 03-11-2010 at 06:27 AM by dsmyth

The Wife Acceptance Factor, or Wife Approval Factor (WAF), is an estimation of the wife's acceptance or refusal of a new acquisition by the husband.

The Woman Acceptance Factor is inversely proportional to the possible amount of conflict resulting from the different points of view. The lower the WAF, the more convincing needs to be done, or the more conflicts arises from the acquisition or project.

Wow. Linux has come a LONG way since Slackware 3.2
