Ocean water would be more entertaining. Especially if it was coast to coast.

Best if it was Europe's Atlantic coast to Asia's Pacific coast, or vice versa.

Next best option - Atlantic to Pacific across the US.

I hate when people use "1337 sp34k". I just recently learned what "<3" was, does someone want to explain what "illy" is supposed to mean?

That's not 1337 speak; that's laziness. There's a difference between abbreviations and misspelling stuff. Ironically though, 'illy' is both. I'm pretty sure it was supposed to be ily(I love you).

Okay, if you couldn't understand what I wrote above (which took quite some time to write) I said,

"I hate it when people use netspeak. It's stupid, and I only like some of it. And it's weird when people talk in netspeak in real conversations."

I'm fortunate in that I've resided in Japan since all that nonsense came to be and I've never heard any of it actually spoken. I don't think I could stand it.

Oh, YOU DEFINATELY won't be able to stand it. A bunch of the really weird people I know use netspeak in real life. Like when they're just messing with you they say,"J K J K LOL" and that is one of my famous "Wtf? Moments" I'd have to say.

My friends used to say "WTF?"....but as we were all in the Navy we spoke it "Interrogative Whiskey Tango Foxtrot" (which would be the way of verbally representing the signal flags). Or "Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, Over" (the radiotelephone equivalent).

I see nothing practical about urinary incontinence. Funny, yes. Practical, no.

It's just my way to express my "meter of laughter." :P For some reason, whenever I'm with my friends I always have tears of laughter like 60% of the time. XD

Back On Topic:

I think it would be good if i were to use my money to spend it on materials I need. I'm thinking about buying this CD set that helps you learn a bit of Japanese each day, it's eight discs, and it's $50. I can afford it, but I'm unsure if that'd be the right way to spend my money for now. :o
