1337 Speak

CherryScientists say if you stick a monkey in front of a keyboard and let it bang away it will type a certain percentage of real words accidentaly. Scientists are a funny bunch. Don't they know that monkeys, like their lesser evolved human counterparts, communicate using Leet?

 

Leet, also known as eleet or leetspeak, is an alternative  for the English language that is used primarily on the internet and in text messaging. Leet uses combinations of computer characters to replace alphabet letters. For example, leet spellings of the word leet include 1337 and l33t.

 

The origin of leet is disputed. Popular thought has computer programmers in the 1980's using  a type of undocumented code to communicate to their programming peers. I was there, and we did. Like inmates leave messages in the books of the prison library, like kidnappers leave messages in the personals, programmers would leave messages in the code of programs. Other programmers,  considered "elite", would surely understand this ad-hoc code.

 

Leet's substitution of computer keys for english letters uses phoenetics. Hate becomes H8, late is L8, no big deal, it's like vanity plates.

Leet is still used as code and peers will use it to communicate to their peers. Other elites.

Winning over an adversary can be called "owning" the day. The winner "owns" the looser is "owned". Add leet and you have "pwn3d". Simple enough when you know. If you don't know, there are websites with translators to crack the code.  http://www.noslang.com is one and it says there are 25 "leets" every parent should know.

Legend has it some modern day Romeo and Juliette used <3 to say "I love you". It started with 1 letter in I, 4 letters in love, and 3 letters in you being typed 143 and morphed into <3. The modern day Romeo and Juliette also have a leet way to express their love in the physical sense. The expression of physical love communicated via text messaging is called "sexting". Here's a few of those so you can sext your BF/GF.

On second thought, don't. Your BF (Husband) / GF (Wife) might ask someone in the office what something means, and they might actually know, and OMG! LOL.

 

With all this GNOC, GYPO and S2R going on I'd like to point out that a 16 year old with a naughty picture on their cell phone sent to them by another 16 year old is in possesion of Child Pornography. Child Pornography is considered Obscene Matter. If it goes from cell phone to Facebook it is being distributed, and Distribution of Obscene Matter is on the RICO list. Bye-bye house and cars.

 

Sext if you want to, GNOC, that's your call, and that's Cocktail Talk.

 

Thank you for reading,
