Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. - what does this text mean?
I just finished watching Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and there was a text I didn't understand. http://img31.imageshack.us/img31/3241/3dhs.jpg
It said "Raising tide in a holding pattern. Planing to go dark. What is your status?" I am curious, what it means.
That's not plain English -- it's some kind of military jargon. It's probable that the agents had previously agreed on the exact meaning of the coded phrases. My guess is that "Rising tide" may refer to an attack. Holding pattern means that the "rising tide" is waiting before it will continue. "Planning to go dark" probably means they're going to turn off all their transmitters and/or lights, etc., so that they can move undetected. "What's your status?" is asking how they are / what their situation is.
