Internet Addiction?

I just took a quick stroll around the block.  Two of my neighbors were walking their dogs and chatting, so I joined them.  One of them said something humorous so I turned my head and said "LOL!"

I think it's time to get back to the real world.

One night I had just shut the computer down and got into bed and was reading a magazine.
i got to a part of the article I was reading and said, "Oh for crying out loud", and got up out of bed. My wife said, "Now what are you doing?", and I said, "I'm going to reply to this guy."
She reminded me it was a hard copy magazine and not a disucssion board with a forum.

LOL!

I've heard people use AFAIK (as far as I know)and IIRC (if I remember correctly) in conversations.

Hey, Delores. Here's a story for you. (and it's true, I swear) Once I met a gorgeous man (a retired surgeon) who was rich, drove a new Mercedes and we started chatting. This was when I was still going out on the weekendsand (gulp!) dating. Anyway, women were throwing themselves at this guy and he asked ME to dinner. I don't like meeting men at bars (so why was I there? lol) so I hesitated and decided to talk to him for a while. I was in one of my silly moods & when we walked outside, he pointed to his shiny, expensive black sports car & I asked if it had a floor and said I liked the car Fred Flintstone drives. He asked "Who is Fred Flintstone?" So I looked at him in disbelief and said "You know...Wilma, Barney, Betty, Pebbles, Dino, Bam-Bam, Yabba Dabba Doo...and he just stared at me. "Sorry, I don't know those people." Well, I went home by myself that night and ate leftovers. The next day I told a friend and she asked "Why would you turn down a nice dinner with a handsome doctor?" I just said "Are you you kidding? He didn't know who Fred & Wilma are! How could we possibly have anything in common?"

Remember the scene on the bus in Trains, Planes and Auotmobiles with Steve Martin and John Candy? Steve Martine tries to get everyone singing Three Coins In A Fountain, and gets blank states.
Then John Candy starts in, "Flintstones, meet the Flintstones...." and the whole bus joins in!
