Oh…I thought it might mean “Lots of Luck…” but that never seemed to fit :-?


(Dittohead) #4

lol haha :stuck_out_tongue:


(kevin3d) #5

Ahhh…I get it now :stuck_out_tongue: But doesn’t that make you redundant? :smiley:


(stukkm) #6

it’s funny because as soon as i saw your topic i felt like lol (and it’s laughing out loud not laugh out loudly but oh well). i’m not making fun of you for not knowing that by the way, if i were i’d call you a newb or n00b :wink: but i won’t, i don’t do that


(acasto) #7

It’s not as bad as me trying to figure out what n00b or newb meant. For the longest time I thought it was a reference to Star Wars, like a nubian. :o

i remember thinking lmao was supposed to be some kind of messed up spelling of a word instead of an acronym.

rofl.

And for those who don’t know…

rofl = rolling on the floor laughing
lmao = laughing my *** off
roflmao = both of the above

(IMProvisar) #16

Oh, here’s another one. It’s really only useful when speaking, and not in written/typed text. An “aye dee ten tee” error. Write the letters and number out… ID10T… or Idiot error. Easier and funny to tell someone they experienced an I D 10 T error, than tell them they screwed up.

THAT one I’ll have to remember :smiley:

One of my favorites…
