GET THE INTERNET OUT OF THE REAL WORLD (78)

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

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.

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.

I do facepalming a lot IRL.

But then again I work in tech support...

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."

> 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. ;)

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

> buying a coffee at starbucks

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

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

People these days.

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

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.

>>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.

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

irony

>>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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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

impossible in Russia. there is war now

I think like all things in life, moderation is key. Memes are great in that they represent a group-based idea of something that is funny, interesting or literally exists. They can help like-minded people connect. But I think lately the word meme has come to have some of the same properties as the word fuck; It's easily used in many contexts. I think this is dangerous because it can lead people to be lazy in their critical thinking. i.e. "Why is that like that?" "Because meme"

Ahh, damnit, I did that a few times. Sorry. I have tried my best to avoid it.

12 years later. still relevant

Great book, thanks for recommending it. It's more relevant than ever, and the issue is only going to get worse as we all go headfirst into it all.

Man, this thread makes me miss when the internet was simpler, when there weren't as many dark forests that everyone retreated into and it all seemed more fun.

77 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2019-06-30 19:52 ID:rk8Ne12F

>>76
The problem with the modern net is that people see it as a legitimate platform. Back in the day people posted whatever they wanted without any fear or ambitions because they knew that nobody in the real world would ever see it. Nowadays, the internet and the real world are joined at the hip. Posting that you want to kill all the jews is no longer just you venting in the virtual world, it's a very real political statement.

78 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2019-07-23 18:55 ID:314L29yK

>>77
It's only a srs bsns political statement because idiots take the internet seriously. We all need to find a way to re-frontier the World Wide Web or we're all going to see nothing but deranged posts and endless bad content.
