What does "lol" mean?

Postby centaur_lover » Mon Jun 15, 2009 12:19 am

I thought the meaning was laugh out loud... but my sister says otherwise...
which one do u think it is?

"'It's CENTAUR. All caps.' (Artemis) Below the earth's crust, Foaly stored the compliment in the corner of him that stored treasured memories. He would take that out later and gloat over..."
-Artemis Fowl: The time paradox (pg 89)

"Jon Spiro might have "stuff" that the military didn't have, but Artemis Fowl had "stuff" that humans had never seen."

It can mean a few things. With our generation (-ish, we're different generations, I think), it means laugh out loud.

For our parent's generations, it means lots of love.

I've never heard of lots of laughs. Perhaps a mix-up of the two.

Nowadays, it means "lack of laughter." Because nobody is actually laughing out loud when they type it.

I always thought it meant laugh out loud.

It mean Laugh out Loud, but I say it mean Live out Loud. ;)
If music didn't exsist, I'd create it.
If poetry weren't in my life, I'd find it.
If all my friends up and left me, I'd make new ones.
My life is a colorful thing, and nothing will make it grey.

People who game more than IM use Lol as Laugh out Loud.
People who IM more than game usually use lol as Lots of love, sometimes laugh out loud.

It's the mordern english, get use to it.
We went from "thy warrior shalt smite thee beast"
to "the warrior wil kill the beast"
to "this kid is going to own that peice of crap"
to " ']['|-|1$ |\|00|3 0\/\/|\|$ ']['|-|1$ ']['|-|1|\|9 "
And now, we wait for the failcioty (stupidity of society) to invent some new 'creative' way to deminish english to what it use to be.
