I haven't been short of anything to write about, just really busy lately. Next week I'll be starting off a solid stretch of weeks with 3 posts for sure.
Check out this eye chart which was found in a English text book over at a school in Korea. Look at the acronyms and tell me if you find anything fishy.
Spot anything? Well, for you newbs (people who don’t know much about something) to internet slang, I’ll break down everything in the eye chart picture from top to bottom…
Line 1&2: OMG – Oh My God
Line 3: W2F – What The F***
Line 4: STFU – Shut The F*** Up
Line 5: PWN3D – This is internet slang for “you got owned.” Usually it’s said by people who play World of Warcraft and such.
Line 6: URAN00B – You are a n00b. Similar, but not the same as “newb.” In this case, the spelling is different, and it means you are not only a fool who knows nothing, but you are somewhat aware of your ignorance and have no plans on trying to escape it.
Line 7: LMAOROTF – Laughing My Ass Off Rolling On The Floor
Pretty embarrassing if you ask me.
You might wonder how something like this happens. Well, a lot of times teachers here are given a lot of responsibility and are held to high standards. This responsibility might involve helping create/proof read a text book that your school is going to publish (hasn’t happened to me yet), or teaching less than 24 hours after arriving even though you have no experience and were given two hours of “training” in an extremely jetlagged/hungover state (this happened to me).
Might never find out who threw that in the text book, but I do think it’s a bit immature…even if I did LOL(laugh out loud) when I saw it.
