Internet Lingo

I spend a LOT of time online, whether surfing the web, playing games, reading forums, or chatting. And there's one thing you learn when you do that: people that spend a lot of time online have a language all their own.

But I also have "traditional" friends. You know, the ones that spend more time in meatspace than cyberspace. And sometimes I forget which space I'm in and let some online lingo fly. Which then leads to complicated explanations of terms and expressions and how they came to be.

For example, I say "Oh, really?" a lot. But I don't say it the way you just read it there, I say it the way it's written online. And, out of habit, I expect the proper response. So, for the sake of my friends that didn't know what I was talking about, here are the "Oh really" owls.
