Seriously, I hate it.

But I suppose it's only to be expected from the generation which invented what I like to call the ''remedial-culture''.

Don't you remember being in highschool, where your popularity rose in proportion to your low I.Q ?

Anyways, that's why Im not surprised that nearly everyone I talk to will answer me with ''lol'' atleast half the time. Because it makes a convenient shortcut for typing out or vocalizing a response which might require from them the staggering sum total of a single iota of thought.

By the way... ''inb4 predictable lol posts''

Thoughts ?

A kid took a fetal pig during pig dissection, put a napkin on it as a cape, wrote "super pig" on it, then threw it out the window onto the greenhouse below, yelling "super pig, blast off!". He failed the pig lab

They credited us with the birth of that sort of heavy metal thing. Well, if that's the case, there should be an immediate abortion.

I'd rather hang out with someone who says, "lol," than somebody who would sit there and look down on others for retarded reasons. I'm guessing other people feel the same way. I think I just figured out the popularity thing you were talking about.

I love you =] I can't say I was very fond of you when we first started talking because you trolled the hell out of my threads, but after talking to you here I've grown very attached to you.

Yeah, write to my fanclub about it, honey.

You mean in real life? If so, then yeah, that is extremely lame.
But on the computer, I think it's fine.

Would you prefer we said "I am laughing out loud"?


I'd prefer it.

I don't really mind it on the internet or in a text message, but I think it's kind of annoying when people say it when I talk to them in person, and they actually mean it...

its one letter shorter than haha, thus allowing someone to know that you think what has been said/done is funny one letter quicker. If using shortcuts is bad in a textual conversation is bad, than you should type "intelligence quotient" instead of IQ before insulting said users of the abbreviation "lol".

BUT... if you're talking about people who actual verbalize "L-O-L", than yes i agree with you, that pisses me off too.

Well, it's a slightly less awkward way of saying "I find humour in something that was recently said". And doesn't mean quite the same thing as actually laughing, or posting a . I can't say I'm bothered by it, and I don't think you can say people only say it because they're not as smart as you.

I think its somewhat sarcastic. because nobody actually laughs out loud over the internet.
except for when i read the responses to this thread.
epic lulz

lol


Actually I hate it when people say lawl or l-o-l in an actual conversation. I'm with you, friend

Quote by Uber Man
well, i only say L.O.L. as sarcasm or for comic effect by poking fun at myself.... sigh.. im not the coolest person.

EDIT you are talking about verbally saying lol right?

Im actually talking about when they say it on the computer AND in real life.

Obviously it's much worse when they verbalise it. It's still this rightly irritating when all someone has to say to whatever statement/comment/query you're making is ''lol''. Honestly, it's like an epidemic of social and intellectual myopia and it is driving me mad. I feel like Im on a deserted island.


EDIT: to be perfectly clear; Im referring to when people use ''lol'' to something you say when its nowhere near funny. Things that are either serious, inquisitive, skeptical, sad, etc etc.

For instance...

''Next summer, I might head west on a motorcycle with a friend and write down what I see in a journal. I heard Ché Guevara did a similar thing in his youth with a good friend''

The answer: ''lol''

I hate it too. I never say lol. It's a horrible attempt at conversing and basically says,"okay, what you just said I didn't give a rats ass about, so I'm just going to reply with the most unintelligible meme ever".

Quote by aig91
I hate it when it's spoken. It makes the person talking look like an idiot. I don't think it really matters if someone types "lol." But, that's just my opinion.

It's more when you know they aren't really laughing and are really just too lazy to move their fingers a few measely inches to speak their mind on what is really going on in a conversation.

oh yea, I know what you mean. It's generally when someone feels as though they should respond to something you've just said but can't think of anything worth typing, so they say lol.


I generally only use lol only when something is actually fairly funny.

Well, I guess I've always been the kind of person almost insultingly indifferent to the issues which drive people mad, and absolutely sincere to the things most people have no care for.

Oh, and I've never really liked people either, so I guess I can't argue that either.
