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
it was foretold
I miss the days when the worst of it was kids making troll faces at each other and saying "lawl".
It's seriously something equivalent to a massive blow in the face seeing a thread about this, especially one made back in 2007.
I'm young as hell, and I've been around on the internet for a terrible amount of time for my age. I've been reflecting on it; the seeping influence of what used to be 'niche' internet subcultures is now the basis of most every student's life.
Is the Internet Culture board just the Culture board now?
yeah, pretty much. Also, nice sage.
lol holy shit, sorry for the obscene formatting. I haven't posted on a textboard for quite some time.
I've used net speak irl, but it's always been on reflex. I've said pic related during a presentation and called something based on reflex once or twice, privately though.
The worst net speak irl I've seen is politics. My college has speeches and every few a freshman, who's obviously got all their info from twitter/Youtube ranters, tries to debate people with degrees and years of experience in their field. They use meme speak only their online groups use, which is disrespected every were else, and they always start with loaded questions.
sometimes my friend says out loud DEUS VULT
