it really hurts my brain that we have become a society that is so lazy they have to shorten everything down to one letter per word.... im not saying i dont do this ... im a "lol" junkie... its an automatic thing for me you will most likely never see a post where i dont use it... not becuase im laughing out loud... just becasue ive been typeing it for so many years (8 online years) that my fingers automatically type it even if its the farthest thing from my mind

anyways it just hurts my brain.... lol
