Heh... it's disturbing when people pronounce 'LOL' and 'ROFL' as words. Because then what we've done is make a word, out of an acronym, which describes a physical expression, which can't be conveyed in text. Then say it out loud in the real world.

Now there is another term from teh internets that is apropriate here: FAIL

xD

Its even better when you do that riding a bicycle.
I make better time in the 2 miles closest to my office on bicycle then I do in the car. I only get my 4.3 mile commute trip done 5 minutes fast in the car.

Bicycling is the best way to learn hypermiling. Experienced riders can keep up with beginners on half the oxygen intake, despite the steady loads of the body. In commuter races to downtown destinations, bikes always beat all comers, even those without a parking search.

One of the following is untrue :

There is a byelaw in England that if a Scotsman is armed you are allowed to legally kill them.

If someone uses words like LOL and ROFL in real life then you are allowed to kill them, or at least use surgery to remove their iPhone, which is the same thing.

Every englishman is required to practice archery once a week under pain of death.

I prefer ROFLCOPTER or LOLLERSKATES for conversation.

I also say JSYK instead of 'just so you know' still shorter.
