You're all alone, mate. "FUBAR", or "F***ed up beyond all recognition", if I remember correctly, was a term used by hopsital and ambulance staff to alert each other secretly on the condition of incomming cases. Another common one was: "GOOMER" (Go-Mer). "Get Out Of My Emergency Room", used to tell nursing staff that they suspected a person was just a whiner or a faker or someone who could have waited to be treated by a doctor.

That's my understanding. It MAY NOT BE FACT... Don't quote me.

It's my understanding that FUBAR is more of a military term, actually.. never heard of it used in a medical sense.

It was around the place Juuuusssttt a little before Saving Private Ryan. Like... Twenty or thirty years. Maybe sixty to one hundred. Maybe just a smidge more. *Contiues to exaggerate* I think Caine described Able that way.

"Where art your brother, Able?"
"Am I my brothers keeper??"
"His blood doth cry to me from the earth."
"FINE! Fine, okay? I beat him to death with the jaw bone of an ♥♥♥, are you happy now!? He's FUBAR! I've commited the first murder... You think I'm sorry, huh? Well I'm NOT! You were all 'ooohhh Able your lamb sacrifice is SOOO good', 'oh Able, you're so much better then your brother Caine'... Well now I've sacrificed the most important lamb in my parents flock to you. DO YOU LOVE ME NOW?!"

I once heard that it has similar origins as "krauts". It is a german word that got picked up by U.S. soldiers in ww2. There is a word that remotely sound like fubar, which means terrible or awful.

Furchtbar sounds like FUBAR at best when an Idiot is saying it.

This. From my understanding, FUBAR was used in the military to express they were in a sticky situation. Another variation is TARFUN(Things are really F****** up now.)
