I think yolo is actually a great concept, because it is true. However, its been blown out if proportion and into a hipster term and used out of context.
My workplace adopted YOLO as their safety campaign. First of all I don't think they quite get what it means, and second I refuse to wear any of the shirts or supporting merchandise they offer.
I only use YOLO as a way of poking fun at a friend of my hubs. I also use totes and jelly which I have been doing for YEARS.
After my cross country coach heard what YOLO ment he said the most inspirational thing anyone has every said "Go YOLO it up"
I just want to say that I heard that YOLO is grammatically incorrect. It should be YLOO, if anything. You live only once, after all.
My inner grammar nerd adores that correct observation.
You may only *live* once, but if I hear you use that phrase non-ironically, I wish upon you a hundred thousand deaths until you descend into the depths of hell reserved for the douchiest of douchecanoes.
True but stupid.
Kids used to say it all the time and I'd tell them their one was almost up!
I said stupid, even though I went through a phase when I said it ALL the time.
It used to annoy me, but I think it's kind of funny now
I don't believe in reincarnation, so I think it's simply true.
I actually had a student write that in a paragraph for class. Not only is it annoying but It is NOT SPANISH! He just didn't get it.
It's a fad saying.
Doesn't bother me.
I don't say it.
I cant even say "you only live once" in a heated moment smh
Stupid and funny. Funny as in, haha you should try using your brain some time.
Thank god the people who say that only live once. Wouldn't want them in a second life.
Thankfully people don't say it much around here.
Carpe diem for idiots.
I work In Yolo county...it is spray painted everywhere. I want to beat my head in everytime I hear or see it.
No beating your pretty little head. :)
WTF is YOLO?!
You only live once :-/
Sometimes the situation calls for me to say you only live once. I never say YOLO but it still bothers me
I use Yolo in dumb ways to make fun of people who use it. Example, I gotta tie my shoe YOLO!
When someone says YOLO, I want to scream.
We went to myrtle beach, SC in June and someone wrote #yolo in the sand. Yes, even the hashtag. I died inside a little.
You obviously love owls too?!?
Owls are awesome. I've got a creepy ass statue of one guarding my front door. The eyes are orange and practically glow in the right lighting. I rescued it from someone's trash in the dead of night last summer. My dad keeps trying to take it though...
Next up: "Totes jelly", as in "You're totes (totally) jelly (jealous) at my new selfie (photograph of myself, taken by myself, either by holding my phone at arm's length or by pointing it at a mirror)."
Stop being totes jelly
Hahahaha! Is that real?!? This just gave me a poll idea! :)
You cray cray, Tony.
I really dislike all of those. It sounds like baby talk to me. Infantalizing. And to hear an almost-adult or adult person using "jelly" for jealous just makes me want to scream.
I don't know what's wrong with me, that it irritates me so much.
Susan - if we ever meet in person when I'm in Colorado (e.g. this December), you have to promise me that you'll say that on video.
I can't even imagine saying it.
Where in Colorado?
And you know I'm allergic to video. My tongue swells.
Longmont, and a grotesquely swollen tongue would only make the Vine video even more epic. YOLO!
So near, and yet so far (35-40 miles).
I have never heard that phrase actually used and I hope to God I never will.
Saying YOLO = getting punched in the throat
Funny! Amazing! YOLO!!
The concept is good, the acronym is beyond stupid. Every time I hear someone say this, I think a little less of them.
Is that like a Ding Dong or Devil Dog :)
that's what she said
I thought that was to me... I almost died. xD
What would you do if you got banned, Mr L?!
I would *literally* die. Literally.
MrL, I really do hope you are joking.
Maybe, maybe not. :)
I'd prefer not to find out.
MrL - you're on the permanent "do-not-ban" list. You're smart, kind, generous, engaged, open, and just plain nice. I'd ban myself before banning you.
That made my week. Thanks, Tony...
Wow, I actually teared up. Darn it...
This whole conversation is adorable *_*
Who got banned?
I did, but I hacked the SOH servers to get back on! Muahahahahaha!
Brandon, nobody got banned. It was a joke by Tony..
By the way, Fynd, congrats on winning the three-word-poll contest. Your account has been upgraded.
Thanks, Tony! It's impossible to fit my gratitude into a single comment, or possibly even words!
The age results are interesting on this one.
Shocking. Definitely thought they would be the complete opposite
Huh... Interesting, indeed.
My thought exactly! I expected under 21 to say funny.
So mind numbing. I hate yolo. I hate Drake. I probably like you less if you say yolo... I can't civilly explain my hatred for mainstream rap...
I can relate. I can't civilly explain my hatred for the sound that many people make while eating.
Nono Smith... Nono.
And I chew gum really loud so I'll make it a point not to bring any Sunday :P
I prefer carpe diem.
I like Carpe Platipi.
Also known as "Seize the Platapi"
I'm interested to hear an analysis of the difference between the two. Go!
Anytime I tell CDFL that I prefer carpe diem, he responds by saying that the day is just never enough.
But to seize the Platapi is to seize the impossible as the Platipi is such a wierd animal.
Carpe diem sounds intelligent and YOLO makes you sound like an idiot.
You only like Oreos
You only lack originality
I'm pretty sure this violates your own question writing tips: w.showofhands.mobi/qterms.html :D
lol, just kidding... I just can't stand that acronym.
