NSFW - 18+ plz!

Lately, I've discovered a couple of websites that are waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay the hell out in left field, and with these websites, comes a whole new lexicon. So as a new feature of this blog, from time to time, I'll report on some of these words, phrases, in-jokes or memes.
The title of this blog post for example is webspeak that operates not only as a caveat, but also a warning: NSFW = Not Safe For Work.
Any time you see NSFW, you can expect either nudity, raw language easily read from five feet away, or something completely improper. This post would probably rate a NSFW siply due to the fact that it discusses some memes or phrases that you don't want your boss reading over your shoulder.

That being said:

Two sites that are notorious for phrases:
You remember those absolutely annoying posters from the 90's; the ones that had a black background with some general photo with a word underneath it and a basic description of that word?
This is the anti-thesis of those posters. Some is brilliant, some is stupid, some makes you say WTF?, some make you say OMFG, some will make you want to puke, others will make you want to call child protective services. I don't care if you're offended by it, I don't care if you don't get it, I don't care if you think it's sacreligeous. I think it's F'ing hilarious.

uh, yeah.... what ever you do, stay the F away from /b/.
Seriously... don't go to /b/.
This is your last warning..... you go to /b/ I cannot be held responsible for what it does to you.
You stupid asshat.... you looked.... didn't you. You've only got yourself to blame.

Alright.... so you may have seen some weird phrases or words above.... time to break it down for you.

WTF? - standard response to something that doesn't make sense. For example:
User 1: so there I was, talking to her, and this dude comes up and kicks me in the balls.
User 2: I shaved a goat with my teeth.
User 1: WTF?

WTF is a truncated form of What The Fuck?

OMFG/OMG - standard exclamation denoting suprise or shock. For Example:
[Picture of squirrels fighting with lightsabers]
User 1: OMG that is soooo cool!
User 2: OMFG User 1 is such a noob!

OMG is a truncated form of Oh My God.
OMFG - the 'F' doesn't stand for 'fun'

F is when you want to emphasize something, but you're too embarassed to actually say the word. Example:
User 1: F the world!
User 2: STFU you whiny, emo douche who is too afraid to drop a full f-bomb!

F is still not short for 'fun'

/b/ is the proper title of a group on - I kid you not, it will curve your spine, melt your brain, and make you question not only your sexuality, but also your faith in humanity. Example:
User 1: man, i just fapped the craziest shit from /b/. I kid you not man, school bus porn!
User 2:

/b/ is the directory name of 'random' at (for the love of god, if you haven't checked it out yet.... burn your fucking computer!)

Asshat is an adjective that became super popular for approximately 10 minutes back in the early '00s - but completely lost all credibility when it was used on an episode of Gilmore Girls or some stupid show on the CW.

Well, that's all I've got for now - next time (If I remember) I'll discuss such things as: Fail, Moar, and if you're really lucky.... cats and masturbation.

Wow, has it been that long?

So I finally got around to getting back on here, and I realized that the last time I posted was exactly one month ago.
Again, no body took my survey, so I'm gonna take a bye on this one for the time being - now onto the updates:

- Went and saw the new Star Trek movie: holy crow.... that will require a complete entry in and of itself.
- Finished my first month of a new department: learning lots, injuring myself in the process (lifting restrictions, physical therapy)
- Managed to hit 50 pages in my book! w00t! only 250 pages to go!
- gotta turn in a review of World War Z to an online magazine by the 12th.
- Random observation(s): Conan needs some work, Jimmy still sucks, and Anne Hathaway is really kind of a putz.

I'm sure there's other things out there that I'm forgetting, but for the time being, I'll leave you with this admonition:
