how creative AA. well done. I find it to be more trouble than its worth. good ol' internet shorthand has a nice use though.
Now, 1337 is frowned upon among the upper echelons of gaming society. The sole purpose of 1337 now is for humor.
At least, that's what I got from the Wiki.
I use 1337 as a humorous reference all the time, but only that. People just don't take you seriously when you use it as an actual form of communication.
Ok, I understood that. You said Samuel Alito. But leet still sucks donkey balls in my opinion. Really. I can't find one plausible use for it. I don't know if I could physically survive the amount of marijuana I would have to smoke to be stupid enough to write in "leet."
I say the same thing about watching Naruto, but hey, people still do it.
It had its purpose, and now it is slowly dying off, but will never be quite over. What annoys me more? People who don't even attempt to spell correctly. That and Vin Disiel jokes (1. He's Gay, 2. Chuck Norris sucks 3. Bruce Lee could beat both of them 4. Jet Li could as well 5. Who can forget Tony Jaa?).
I used to be able to read leet faster than English, mostly because when I played video games, that would be my 'language' and I used to play a lot. I've stopped, so I slowed down but I can still understand a large portion of it. As well, most people think it's one way but leet is three distinct forms: leet, l33t, and 1337.
1337 is the most annoying, followed by l33t. I enjoy all when used correctly, but most people can't use them correctly. That and is has become another thing to not do in polite company: Don't talk about religion, sexuality, politics, and leet.
Clowns are scary. Unicycles are funny. I'm wearing pants.
Would that count as a haiku?
I think that's the right number of syllables, so yes.
isn't it 5-7-5?
i thought it was..
