Same here. Some of my friends say that all the time, so I naturally assumed that was what it meant.

Perhaps it's all context.

So if you're trying to say that your comment or idea or statement is better than everyone else's . . . then it's For The Win.


But if you're trying to express confusion and befuddlement, as in "what the hell are you talking about?", then it's Fuck The What?




I don't frickin' know!

In certain two-wheeled circles, ftw means "fuck the world." If you see it tattooed on certain gentlemen of hairyness and gereral toughness, they are not internet geeks. They do mean it to mean "fuck the world."
