Could it be MAGIC? No.

MAGIC, that technological wonder of the next age, reportedly stands for “Mathematics Access Grid: Instruction and Collaboration.” This is possibly the worse acronym since Arnold Rimmer’s “The Committee for the Liberation and Integration of Terrifying Organisms and their Rehabilitation Into Society,” or maybe “The War Against Terror.” So mighty brains of postgrads, I challenge you to provide me with alternative things that MAGIC could stand for. Preferably funny, but rude will do. Your prize you ask? The fame and fortune that will come from having original work of yours proudly displayed on this website. Magic.
