2. What does GI stand for?

Good idea

When someone is complimenting your intelligence or initiative, GI stands for "good idea." This appreciative acronym is most often used in online chat and text messages.

For example, if a friend were to ask you what they should have for dinner, and you were to suggest they have pizza from their favorite pizza place, your friend might respond with "GI." Many (if not most) good ideas involve eating tasty food, or are a direct result of just having eaten tasty food.

Example

"I really want to get some ramen from that new ramen place."
"That's a gi, we should definitely try it soon."

Turns out, it's not a GI to write slang definitions right before lunch
