I don't mean to continue this discussion, but I have to say this.

If there's one thing that ceaselessly fills me with inconsolable rage, it's this. More than 80% of the fuckwad jocks and other assorted assholes in my school now include shit like "epic fail", "owned", and "the game" in their vocabulary. Hell, I even went berserk on one of my own friends because he included "owned" to every second sentence and he made himself sound like the biggest ass-hat in existence. I wasn't surprised though, as he only discovered the chans just recently, and he's still a huge newfag.
