Tilt, everyone knows "laugh out loud" is LOL and LoL is League of Legends.

In other worlds, a failed attempt of a poorly executed joke.

I prefer just lol, all lowercase.

I laugh at funny stuff, so I'll guess so. Not everyone who thinks they are is very funny though.

Apparently not. I've been told a number of times on SOH that "it was a joke" but I've totally failed to see the humor, or exactly how I should have recognized something as "a joke."

My family & friends might disagree, though.

Well I think it's difficult to decipher sarcasm in just plain text. It's easier if it's in person. That may have something to do with it.

Serious Susan strikes again! Though you seemed to have one in your earlier poll.

Yes, a person's intent is often hard to decipher in text form. Tone of voice and facial expressions play a big role in our communication. A person may intend it to be "a joke," but it may not come across as one since you can't tell HOW they said it.

Actually my own comment was mostly sarcastic. Most of the "jokes" I've been accused of not getting seemed to be at someone's expense - sometimes me - like the guy who yelled at me for posting 2 messages trying to help folks stuck in 2.0-land.

When I explained what I was doing, he yelled at me again for not seeing that it was a joke.

Hmph.

But sometimes I do miss actual humor, because there's no sarcasm font. (I think sarcasm should be in purple or orange, myself.)

They really need to implement a universal "sarcasm mark."

Fyre - I agree with that to some extent, but think about literature & other printed material. I think sarcasm can come across just FINE in literature - because the author give us clues. When people don't take the trouble to do that, that they fail.

And I've been arguing that exact point online for 20 years.

Well, I don't think a sarcasm mark would me mandatory, like an '!' or a '?.' It would be more like: "I this suits your purpose, great. If it's not to your liking, don't use it." It'd be similar to a ';' mandatory-wise.

In fact, it would probably never be used in literature. It would be implemented mainly for use in informal communications, such as texting or emailing (or SOH-ing).

You could have it be a specific emoticon. Like ✂. Or just make it a text icon. Like §.

Tilt, if you're talking to me, I don't remember the guy's user name, but thanks, you're too sweet. However, RJ gave him a good kick (I believe the phrase he used was "turd sandwich" & then got reamed himself, for being mean. Ya can't win.

I just used that phrase today. But what I said, clearly was a joke.

Wrong, sir! PuppyLvr and Listgarten are actually SoH lovers! It's freaking adorable.

pipes
07/08/13 12:53 pm

I wouldn't go that far, but they were already together before SOH. I think. It don't count if you're lovers before, or not relating to SOH.

MrLucchese If curious, ask.
07/08/13 12:54 pm

Nope! They met through SoH.

MrLucchese If curious, ask.

I remember flipping out from the adorableness when I found that out.

07/08/13 12:58 pm

Very manly of you. And that's just ridiculous. For one that they would live in the same town, and two, that they would actually love each other. Eh, whatever.

Nope. We started chatting on SoH, and I was using too much data so we switched to texting (4k texts a month). Then we switched to FaceTime (2k min a month) and then met in person.

This is the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard. But I obviously believe you. It just seems so unlikely. And that your parents didn't mind, etc. so where are you two now? I'm also 15 btw, nice to see young users on SOH.

It's crazy and unlikely... But 100% true. What do you mean by "where we are now"???

You're still in SoCal and he's in northern cal, I presume. I guess long distance relationships work out.
