  • Speaking of "win", excessive use of that word (and its counterpart/nonantonym, "fail") is another sure pathway to morondom. Perhaps a spoken intellectual equivalent to greengrocer's apostrophe.

    I love sionnach's last sentence.

    Also, I very seldom write LOL also... actually I never write it, and seldom type it... but when I do it's because I actually did make some kind of untoward noise. I don't think it counts to limh or even to smile in my head (simh). But if I actually make some kind of audible noise, I figure that's a fair LOL.

  • whichbe: I think that the elusive 'lol' elixir has also been isolated in the sap of the loblolly pine. Should you have such a tree, or cluster of them, and should you be contemplating harvesting them because your 401K has become a 201K (i.e. lost half its value), an estimate of your return can be obtained by running this program . It is not clear whether cats can play any useful role in isolating the 'lol' ichor from the tree; though chained_bear might be able to lease out a loblolly boy or two to help with the harvest.

  • Wow. Someone actually sat down and wrote that paragraph.

    January 6, 2009

  • From Wikipedia:

    "David Crystal notes that use of LOL is not necessarily genuine, just as the use of smiley faces or grins is not necessarily genuine, posing the rhetorical question "How many people are actually 'laughing out loud' when they send LOL?". Franzini concurs, stating that there is as yet no research that has determined the percentage of people who are actually laughing out loud when they write 'LOL'."

  • This is mystical "stuff" at the center of a lollypop that is mined through a quest of enumerable licking, then delightfully spread throughout the lands by cats.
