Posted:Only 60% of people in internet chat rooms actually laugh out loud when they type LOL. Significantly fewer roll on the floor laughing, approximately 12%, though its hard to measure as they generally fall out of view of the web cams used to gather the information. But, by far the most disturbing trend is the 5% to 6% of the Internet Chat Room Populace that have begun to laugh their asses off. ER rooms in America & A&E in Britain have reported a 4 fold increase in the amount of Internet Related Ass Prosthesis (IRAP). The problem is compounded by huge numbers of people falsely claiming to LMAO & causing a misdirection of essential ass saving resouces. So the next time you read a pithy comment on an internet chat room/bulletin board - THINK before you TYPE.

ubblol ?

Posted:lol... YES, I did laugh... and people looked at me strangely, suppose thats the problem with being at school... anywho!

Occasionly I use the term lol when I didnt actually laugh, I need to use the smiling emoticon more...

And, I am yet to laugh my ass off... last I checked I still had one... although laughing your ass off, could be a good alternative to plastic surgery smile

Oh, and *hand MiG some paper towel* can you PLEASE clean up that milk...

Posted:So this reminds me of a joke.

There was a young man who was born with a platinum screw (phillips head) in his navel. As you can imagine, this was rather embarassing and made public swimming rather akward, and necessitated some explaining in romantic encounters.

Every night he would go out and pray 'please take this screw out of my navel!'

And one night, as he prayed in the silver light of the moon, a platinum hand came down from the heavens holding a platinum screwdriver (phillips head) which turned (counter-clockwise) the screw in the young man's navel. It was quite long, it turned out, and it came out gently and without pain...and left no mark.

The young man heaved a sigh of relief and said 'Thank God!' and stood up to go back inside...

And his butt fell off.
