I had to do it.

Now Pick a side.

When you are chatting, which phrase is more formidable for emphasizing laughter? Heh, or lol?

My website: http://halestrom.net/darksleep@Occasionally you may meet me when you sleep. In the darkest corners of your dreams, where your phone stops working and you don't know what to do. I'll be there; telling you that I don't support your device.

"Can't you just fix-"
NO! I told you when you bought this, when it goes wrong I can't fix it. It's filled with glue. The Greek goddess of glue Araldities herself would be impressed with this.

Please stop asking me for technical support during your dreams. Can't we just tour some surreal landscapes instead?

"How do I do that?"

Count your fingers. Keep trying. Make sure there's ten.

Then summon me. I am large and covered in wires. Clouds of baking soda pour into your world and a slightly weak yellowy glow appears from the LED strips behind me.

If you can see this message then you're already part of the way there. Keep all your styles disabled and you might see the dream within.

"But there's so much javascript everywhere! I can't see you. Help! I've forgotten to count my fingers! Where do I find them?"

The LED strip behind me pops and goes out. Dark spots appear in the centre of each light. I lift my finger to my lips. The smell of tantalum capacitors fills the air.

Ssh. Don't worry about that. Behind those frameworks there's another person sleeping.

Some day the javascript will sleep too.

Well, I'm gonna have to go with 'heh', because when you read it out loud, it sounds like laughing. 'lol' doesn't sound like much of anything, being an abreviation.

Heh is a form of onomonopeia (In case you dont know what that means, it's when a word is spelled out the way it sounds, such as POW and arrggh)

Heh, since it really isn't laughing, more of just a thick breath, it's basically a way of telling people that ''I think what you said was funny and I want you to know that, but I wasn't really laughing''

LOL stands for ''Laugh out Loud'' or ''Lots of laughs'' or however you want the acronym to say. I can understand if an event happens or something that was said was extremely funny that you would indeed laugh out loud right in front of your computer, however over the years lol has been dragged out to hardly emphasize laughter at all. Instead it is replaced with lmao or rofl, with a couple exclamation points in the end to emphasize more laughter. I can hardly imagine that anything that happens on your computer is quite capable of making you laugh out loud as frequently as lol gets typed in chat rooms. If you laugh out loud that much at your computer, you will probably suffer embarrassment from those around you.

When I say Heh, you can tell that it is merely the sound I am making with my mouth. In fact, every time I type something, I don't type it formally, I type it the way I said it. So in the event that I type run-on sentences, chances are it would have been a run-on sentence if I had talked it out to you face to face. I don't want to demonstrate any form of lying or stretching the truth by telling people that I was laughing out loud, instead, i emphasize it by a mere sound of my mouth, heh.

If something extremely funny happens where I do indeed laugh out loud, I often choose to type 'haha'. I like to use haha because it demonstrates a type of range of laughter. The longer I am kept laughing, the longer the 'haha' would be. (i.e. hahahahahaha). If I laugh louder, i maybe inclined to go 'HAHAHA', as capitalizing each letter is known on some forums to be called 'yelling'.

I just think heh is a better form of identifying the strength of people's laughs than lol does, so I stick with heh.

I choose for 'Heh' because you practically NEVER laugh out loud, you just say 'Heh' or maybe 'Haha', but we all must confess that we never say 'HAHAHAHAOMGOMGHEHEHEHAHAHA!!!!'

... except when you're really drunk or so =)

y'all got incredibly, and undeniably pwn'd lol.

heh sounds like "I'm pretending to thing what you said is funny, but it's not, so be quiet, and go away."

lol sounds like "I think that's funny, but I wouldn't laugh, unless it was really funny in which I'd type lolr"

lolr "means laughing out loud really" (I made this up)

haha "that's funny man, keep it up"

lqtm "laughing quietly to myself. this is what I actually do."

hehehe "evil plotting laugh."

hahaha nooooooooooooooooooo
this shall not go on any longer. I'll just save the post and that's that.
