What kind of context do you use it in? I'm honestly curious - for me, it's never come up.

If it helps any, he was married with kids. (If it doesn't help, he was pretty cute - in that over-enthusiastic I-totally-love-my-job kind of way. He also looked good for his age. Uh, like my coworker who's in his thirties (at least) and really good looking. I think. And like a certain rock musician I'm obsessed with, who's in his thirties and attrac...I like men my own age. I swear. Some of them. At least one.)

Hmmm, lets see now. It's never a substitute for a good laugh, i mean how could 'lol' ever beat a good, HAHAHAHAHAHA. Get my drift? it's good for defusing situations.

Other times it's on the phone with some good mates.
eg. He says something funny/describes a funny situation, "lol! (said enthusiastically- always supported with additional comment) can't believe that happened," etc.
Additionally, i've used 'l, o, l' (each letter pronounced separately) in this context as well. i find that when it's used in this manner general supporting comments are not necessary as the general meaning is conveyed.
*See the pattern? it's just another way to convey some meaning, albeit somewhat redundant.
Honestly, it's not some cultural revolution, using it does not make one dumber nor should it, it's just another way to express a certain situation/feeling. However, i don't think it should ever replace a real laugh nor should the use of 'lol' be forced. You'll know what i mean if you use it. Generally though it fits in anywhere where someone/something mildly funny has occurred and you can't be stuffed actually laughing/you want to show a little interest for the sake of it.
Just go use it, you'll see.

Thanks LtoP89, I think I understand a bit better now. :3
You were not supposed to find this. >_>"

Which I was actually interested in.
But that guy was great. I got all sorts of compliments from him, too, when I went to see him about the first midterm during his office hours. And he gave me some more marks for it, which is always nice.

You kind of have to go looking. Here's something fairly recent:

Meh. The people who don't know about it and use memes I just ignore because stuff spreads on the internet so I don't really care.
The people who go to 4chan and use memes moderately annoy me. If someone says something and it's funny then I don't care. But if they over use it it really annoys me. Talking to some anons who were just joking around and saying shoop da woop and such and I wasn't really saying anything cause we were playing games but when it got really annoying I just said "one and two" and they shut up.
