I am a bit shocked right now.

Someone asked how to make the popcorn smiley and one person responded (colon)(popcorn)(colon)


So far I have seen people try to post
[popcorn]
and
"popcorn"

I didn't know that this wasn't common knowledge....

Yeah, but I have to be pretty interested to take the time to look.

That's why I learned the bunny. But then after I learned the bunny, I had little desire to learn anything else...

its something you use to reveal the special character you used

in this case a : is never shown because it is a special character here

but an escape character like a \ would go in front of the special character like  \: and in theory everyone would see the : instead of a graphic

lol  Oh no!!!

Don't date a person who doesn't know basic anatomy, they might stick their junk in the wrong hole.

True, slightly funny story that happened to my friend. She didn't end up dating him either, shortly after this.
My friend: is on the phone with this guy and walks out of the room and bangs her hip on the door frame OOOowwww!!
Guy: lol what happened.
My friend: oh lol I banged mi cadera
Guy: your what?
My friend: Mi cadera, my hip
Guy: I'm sorry I don't get it, lol.
My friend: What? My hips dude!
Guy: lol I guess.....

I'm kind of surprised I didn't do some sort of Freudian mishap and spell it "poopcorn."
