This may seem like a stupid question....but, what exactly does "IIRC" mean? I've been wondering about this for months. Thanks.

Where did you read it? In what context?

In internet jargon it means "If I Recall Correctly". :)

Phew! I wasn't the only one who had no clue what it ment. I was just too shy to ask. (yet i will ask if people like watermelon. Go figure.)

Try typing it into google. Google is a search engine popular with a lot of internet users nowadays. It's at www.google.com :)

IIRC, If I Recall Correctly, showed up on the first page a few times. When I added "acronym" to the search criteria, it showed up a lot. It can also mean If I Remember Correctly which is nearly the same thing, or even If I Really Cared in some contexts.

My personal favorite is ROTFLMAO, which is "Rolling On The Floor Laughing My A** Off."
