    I just spit beer water on the screen.

    Oh, c'mon! Everybody's using that one now. It's kind of dirty, so I don't want to post what it means.

    Do a couple of web searches on it-- You'll figure it out.
  4. I'm glad this thread got started, and I'm glad Kokane brought this one up. I myself have been thinking about it for a while, but didn't want to start a whole thread on it.

    Seriously, how many of you have actually spit something on your computer screen because you found it so funny?

    Don't get me wrong. There is some funny stuff posted on here. But I've never seen anything that would make me lose complete control and hurl my beverage of choice all over my computer. Personally, I find said description a bit gross and a lot bit immature. I mean, even if you did do it, you think everyone else really wants to hear it?

    People are fond of describing this place as an Internet version of a neighborhood bar. How many of you spit out your beer all over someone telling you a joke? For your safety, I hope it's very few of you.

    I have refrained from spitting on my screen, but I suspect a couple of middle school teachers have had sex on my keyboard.

    I'm glad you guys mentioned the fun with quotes. Just tremendously overplayed. The payoff (joke) is 99.9% of the time not worth the effort of trying to figure out the change.

    And then sometimes someone will not quite have the quote function mechanism correct, and their reply is somewhere in the quote. I think.

    FWIW, I like lol.

    To me, it's just a quick tip of a hat, to say that you are amused.

    Why so much angst over this stuff? It's just Internet shorthand and differing opinions of what's humorous. Enjoy what you enjoy, ignore or tolerate what you don't. I mean, someone saying they spit Pepsi on the screen....SFW? It's their way of saying they found something to be funny.

    There's no angst, dools, we're just giving our opinions on what we think is played out or not funny.

    But I know you use fun with the quotes sometimes, and it's nothing personal. I've done it myself.

    Count me as one of those who roll their eyes every time they talk about spitting their coke on the screen.

    Are that many people so spastic that they have no control over their bodily functions?

    I also wish there were a way to get rid of the "fun with the quotes" function.

    That one annoys me 100 times more often than it amuses me.

    Just one man's opinion ...

    But, seriously, I know it's one man's opinion. But you really think that's the thing the board needs to get rid of right now? Truly?
