GET THE INTERNET OUT OF THE REAL WORLD (68)

1 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2007-12-30 05:10 ID:kZAlYyKU

ITT discussion of people who use memes, jokes, or lingo in the real world. If I hear one more person say "lawl" in real life I think I am going to die

2 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2007-12-30 08:58 ID:HgtWbWRS

why should you care?

3 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2007-12-30 13:08 ID:LtMYRMbc

I saw a cell phone ad that said something like "Don't let their 'lols' add up to a 'OMG'"

4 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2007-12-30 15:30 ID:w8P4kcOX

I used to say Lol IRL, but its died down now. Some people in my class say it still, we're all pretty much nerds. Sometimes when people use wow commands while they're doing something, it makes me facepam.

Example:

/sit before they sit down or somethin,g I don't play WoW so I don't know.

Or not

That's sad (about the /sit part).

7 Name: bobby hill : 2007-12-31 21:48 ID:S4v71G57

its realy retarted, I might bring up desu or a meme, but never stuff like lol, I said lulz on ocasion tho.

8 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2008-01-01 07:51 ID:28fV5oT/

You faggots, I never EVER do that.
I don't even want others to know I post on a chan site.

9 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2008-01-01 10:10 ID:78izdEjt

ONLY DO IT WITH IRONY.

Cannot stress this enough.

Incorrect usage:
Person A: A man walked into a bar and knocked himself out.
Person B: lol

Correct usage:
Person: So I found this web site which claimed to have non-nude high school girls except it turned out to be a lie as some of them were nudes. I lolled, and also fapped hard.

Which is to say, using LOL is acceptable if talking about a time where you WERE on the Internet. Whereas using it with respect to current conversations is unacceptable.

"lawl" on the other hand is unacceptable on or off the Internets.

11 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2008-01-01 15:11 ID:LtMYRMbc

Actually, I use "lol" every now and then, but only when being sarcastic.

12 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2008-01-01 20:04 ID:Heaven

>>9
agreed

13 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2008-01-04 21:13 ID:Heaven

saying "lol" at a joke is like saying "FAP FAP FAP" at a nudie bar.

When I found 4chan, I wondered how come so many people there talk like that one friend of mine. Then I realized that he speaks an ED dialect of 4changlish. No wonder so many of my other friends make fun of him all the time.

14 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2008-01-05 02:00 ID:FEAVa41A

They're Internet Fanatics- Literally, they take their Interneting too seriously and they can't find the line between Reality and the Internet.

15 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2008-01-09 02:09 ID:CwdW552x

>>13

Ugh... 4changlish with an ED dialect? Shoot me now.

16 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2008-01-09 23:30 ID:x5VE130g

Seriously what do you care about? those people are tards, and will probably win a darwin award.

17 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2008-01-16 06:49 ID:+VRhYVuw

I'll say thing like, "O-M-G" or sometimes I'll say out loud, "Sigh~" but it's not habitual. I do it to be funny.

18 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2008-01-16 18:04 ID:trjY7JFv

there's this one guy who says "for the win", i want to slap him. i think if someone actually said "lulz" i'd just lose it.

19 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2008-01-17 04:38 ID:2QG2h+aA

Well, I know where you guys are coming from, but you can't deny that the internet will have a growing cultural influence that has and will continue to penetrate into language. I don't know if you can fight it. It'd be interesting if thirty years from now with the new generations, "lol" or some form of it entered every-day conversation and found itself in the dictionary.

At least Japan is fortunate that there is no good way to pronounce "wwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww". At least not yet.

20 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2008-01-17 06:14 ID:QTQmybRi

I know this girl back home (I'm away for uni) that speaks in nothing but washed-up, tired old memes she picks up off of the 4chan facebook page and livejournal runoff. She will very literally and very often pronounce things like "LULZ!!" "for the win!!" and "I CAN HAS _________???" all the fucking time. I think the one thing that really really really hacks me off is that she pronounces "orz" (as it should be phonetically spoken) all the time, just for fun because she thinks it is entertaining. I can't stand the bitch.

>>21 There's a meme that needs to bleed into real life.

I know people who are into The Game. People who respond very emotionally when someone causes them to lose. One woman whose husband heard "OH FUCK I JUST LOST THE GAME" from across the house every day. And then the entire group we're in has to talk about teh gaem for five minutes.

23 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2008-02-13 06:20 ID:yABVuy8a

I'm tired of memes in general, on the internet and off.

I use lol when a funny situation is not funny enough to make me laugh.

26 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2008-02-15 02:21 ID:cx3tUMFN

I use lol when typing one-handed. That's about my only excuse.

27 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2008-02-15 21:00 ID:4TTy7eG3

>>26, i can guess what you're doing with your left hand but what situation calls for "lol" at the same time?

28 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2008-02-16 13:07 ID:oUA1fwQ1

One possibility: the person on the other side said they knocked their coffee over when they came.

The internet, once you think about it, is controlling the real world. It is actually supporting cliques and bullying. The internet wasn't a mistake, the people who created Facebook and MySpace, however, made a HUGE mistake.

oh damn, that's the only internet related thing i say outloud.

"Not right now, you don't."

34 Name: dyke nails : 2008-02-26 05:12 ID:z4GFhVPm

This guy at work was bugging me, so I told him I didn't want his AIDS. He was like, "Lol! That's a WoW term!!!"

And then I facepalm'd IRL.

35 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2008-02-26 20:58 ID:nuPxYKEf

>>34
You printed out facepalm.jpg and showed it to him?

36 Name: dyke nails : 2008-02-27 09:14 ID:L5yiFEVc

>>35
nope. i put my palm in my face for a perfect RL facepalm lol wow.

37 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2008-02-28 08:13 ID:H+x8Bdw+

>>36
I do facepalming a lot IRL.

But then again I work in tech support...

38 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2008-02-28 19:00 ID:qTZrHr1C

In my school newspaper there was a page of anonymous confession cards written by students (I think).

One said "I masturbate to 2 girls 1 cup."

39 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2008-02-29 19:02 ID:hPKys/0S

>>38

> One said "I masturbate to 2 girls 1 cup."

What has that to do with this thread? 2g1c is like a normal video available on the net. ;)

40 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2008-04-05 18:18 ID:8cD0JVcW

Some faggy teen actually said "facepalm dot jay pee gee" to me when I was buying a coffee at starbucks, i wanted to kick his ass

41 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2008-04-05 22:56 ID:Heaven

> buying a coffee at starbucks

I'd like to take you both out into the street.

42 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2008-04-06 13:39 ID:Heaven

>>40 no shit, it's "jay peg", not "jay pee gee".

People these days.

Have a seat over there, and you, have a seat on his lap. Faggots.

44 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2008-04-07 20:42 ID:wSK3Bx4q

hax my anus

45 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2008-04-12 20:50 ID:gX4qTrkq

I dunno. Seriously, if I heard someone using net speak or a meme IRL, I'd probably want to talk to them. Especially if it were a 4chan meme. I never hear stuff like that around here. I swear I'm the only person in the midwest to have ever heard of 4chan. Probably not a bad thing.

46 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2008-04-13 00:26 ID:Heaven

Ok.

47 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2008-04-14 07:54 ID:L0Bboa7P

>>42
And next you're gonna tell me that it's "meem" and not "me-me"??!?!

48 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2008-04-14 15:15 ID:Heaven

Actually I facepalm a lot IRL. I used to do it for years, but it became more habitual when I started browsing chans more. I never say the word though, even if I used it once and one of my buddies picked it up and now "knows how it's called". I hope he doesn't find where I picked the term up...

49 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2008-04-14 20:25 ID:Heaven

It is heard that it likes Mizugurou in a sexual fashion.

50 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2008-04-15 03:56 ID:RBYEwnL8

I would never use internet talk IRL, but this year me and some friends hijacked our Senior panoramic picture with signs that said "All your base are belong to us!" Surprisingly we got it cleared through the dean...

51 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2008-04-16 20:10 ID:Heaven

So, I was at lunch at college today and I heard someone discussing rickrolling with his group, and my friend kind of had to keep himself from giving them a stern lecture on what and what isn't funny. Like >>1->>50's posting. Not funny.

52 Name: anal otoko : 2008-04-20 20:20 ID:1578ohJ+

I say "asd" a lot. I realize now that many people must think I'm a fool. Screw them anyway.

53 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2008-04-24 04:00 ID:PQlNY9lp

>>22
i fucking hate the game
i live with a guy who's always fucking talking about it and how he "lost" it
and yknow. I DON'T CARE about the fucking game. it was an amusing novelty for about five minutes after i heard of it, but some people just picked that shit up and ran with it. every time i hear someone say "i just lost the game" (which is usually him) i kind of want to punch them

only not really, because i'm not the sort of person to punch someone for something like that

but its FUCKING ANNOYING

54 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2008-04-24 16:53 ID:Fgqo2wU8

I was talking with a person who went to the same high school as me; when I heard him use the words "epic fail."

I immediately facepalmed, and realized I should kill myself.

55 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2008-04-26 02:47 ID:TYX1NMw5

> when I heard him use the words "epic fail." I immediately facepalmed

irony

56 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2008-04-29 18:05 ID:dG/zBcih

>>55

This is the internet though. Not like he said "OH SHIT FACEPALM" in real life.

A geek circle at my college I always overhear spewing memes. One guy says "do you like mudkips?" and the others all laugh like big old nerds. They also say lol IRL and loudly discuss the chans and /b/. VERY LOUDLY.

57 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2008-04-29 19:38 ID:2lferLqo

>>56

:(
Stop oppressing me and my friends, jerk.

58 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2008-05-06 09:36 ID:G0lW0nlm

>>57
If you're anything like what >>56 describes then I want to oppress you at full force.

>The internet, once you think about it, is controlling the real world. It is actually supporting cliques and bullying.

as irl, this all depends on where you go

Net does has an impact on real world. You know, here at Mexico the anti-emo movements have been a little bit overboard. Lots of this guys have died murdered, just because some guys started the flame against Emo (which in a personal way, I don't like either...) but we must reinforce our tolerance.

61 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2008-05-14 23:36 ID:TWXtQHiw

I have no desire to tolerate Emos, I applaud the grubby Mexican bastards who gave them what they deserved.

62 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2008-05-15 13:34 ID:Heaven

mexico - 1
emo - 0

I have a friend who ALLWAYS talk about 4chan
4chan this
4chan that
do you know what they did today on b?
do you know what they did today on jap
did you see the thread about [randomboringthinghere] today?
and so on
i try to explain to him that i dont care
but nothing seems to help

64 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2008-06-03 15:21 ID:Heaven

A Japanese acquaintance of mine mentioned there were people at his university who also used 2ch memespeak and standard netspeak IRL - in front of the uninitiated as well. He was disgusted.

I also see no way to win this battle, unless each person opposed makes it their priority to immediately point out how retarded a person sounds anytime they spew their annoyances. Even then, it seems near-impossible as the "persecution" might further embolden them.

Friends don't let friends netspeak IRL.

If they persist, I suppose it's not too harsh to disown them? You'd be doing at least yourself a favor.

65 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2018-05-30 01:45 ID:zaqHobAm

How do we reverse this trend?

66 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2018-06-14 06:59 ID:w6HQviY3

By destroying the internet.

67 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2018-06-15 10:10 ID:zO8Vd9gV

Just finished reading The Shallows by Nicholas Carr, and I've become very cynical of what the internet has become and what it is doing to our culture. I've also been thinking a lot about how people used to spread information between computers, using text files that would often be printed out and read away from the computers themselves. It's hard not to think about things like this and not sound like a Luddite, but I guess that's what my growing dislike of the web is going to end up making me in to.

It's intrusion into daily life will only increase as smart phones continue to proliferate among ever younger children, and the idea that the internet is an extension of the real world will be so entrenched in to their minds that it will only get worse when they enter the work force and then politics.

68 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2018-06-18 15:04 ID:QkxTzJeg

>>67
so you're saying it's only gonna get worse as the little faggots grow up?
great.
