You also said that about your name and location, why would I expect anything more than lies about your picture?

Eh not really. That's a later tacked on version of what it was. SOS in Morse code was specifically SOS due to its simple structure, easy to recall and transmit. It was short hand for distress: ... _ _ _ ...

But it still means Save our souls, in English, not Morse.

The Morse code of SOS precedes it being an acronym for Save Our Souls, not in conjunction with.

And looking this up on wiki helped me learn a new word, "backronym", so thanks gents!

"In popular usage, SOS became associated with phrases such as "save our ship" or "save our souls". These were a later development, most likely used to help remember the correct letters (a backronym). As the SOS signal is a prosign, its respective letters have no inherent meaning per se, it was simply chosen due to it being easy to remember."
"Let me tell you the truth. The truth is, 'what is'. And 'what should be' is a fantasy, a terrible terrible lie that someone gave to the people long ago. The 'what should be' never did exist, but people keep trying to live up to it. There is no 'what should be,' there is only what is." - Lenny Bruce

"Satan goes to church, did you know that?" - Godsands

True2GaGa, don't explain yourself to these guys. They just like making you upset.
There's always gonna be those people who think they can prove to themselves that they are better than someone by picking on them.
