A new acronym

I've been aware of "PEBKAC" and "ID-Ten-T error" since forever, but I encountered a beauty today that I've never heard before: "PICNIC" (problem in chair, not in computer). And it was a user who told it to me!

Anybody have any more of these?

Being that I'm more or less a shut-in, I wonder if you could tell me what the first two mean

I'm catching on...

When we're riding our horses, if the horse ever does something you don't want him to do, it's always considered a "pilot error".
