    wonder if FE names taking profit...

    That was a comment on an internal chat system where I work. Of couse I see the FE and think Fire Enchannted and immediately jump to conclusions and think its about the bug before I realize that I'm not reading the forums. It actually has to do with Far East names taking profit (I work in the currency markets).

    I'm sure this has happened to you. Where have you seen D2 terminology in RL and immiately thought of D2?

    Not exactly D2 related, but I always look at license plates for 1337-speak that has just randomly appeared. I've never come across anything really funny though.

    Oh yeah, I just remembered that on the drive down to Joshua Tree National Park from where I live there is a road called Lo Road. I've always thought that the people who live there must have awesome luck with runes.

    I've overheard some kids having a conversation and they were talking about "why didn't you get enough TP?" or something like that, and I thought to myself, sweet, they must play D2. Then I though, wait, those kids are probrally talking about Toilet Papering, darn kids :). Everytime I hear to word "Valor" I think of Arcane's Valor. I also make relations to lots of random things to D2, such as when a character leaps in a movie or on TV while I'm watching with friends, I'll say "Leap Attack, ownage!!" or something like that. There are a few more I think, I just can't think of them right now :D.
    D2 is very much a part of my life :p

    When i watched monty python and the holy grail yesturday with a mate, theres 1 scene with a wizard who calls himself 'tim the enchanter' I couldnt help myself by saying "but there more like fireballs" then realised that i said it out loud. I got a strange look from my non-d2 playing friend, who asked what that had to do with anything.

    when i get some money im going to invest in a licence plate that says
    im 1337

    around here theres lots of stupid ''cool'' number plates like pl4ya and stuff and i always think "Bnet nubs" and start laughing to myself

    pwnage

    it's because they are all too lazy to do a half circle when they dont have too.
    I hate using american software with a spellchecker. it annoys me severely.

    Well, my cousin just asked me: "Schaffst du das?" That means "Can you manage it?" and I thought: "Schaffst... schaefst... schaefer... schaefer's hammer... omg that's the item I need to find!"

    I can't remember another certain situation, but there are plenty!

    There are a couple of cars in the area with 'SPF' as part of their number plate.

    It's not the only acronym that leaps out at me, but it's the only (semi-)D2 related one I've seen hereabouts.

    I used to use the intials BotD to stand for Benifit of the Doubt when I was grading papers and someone left out justification of their answer.

    Rumour has it that shortly after the American Revolution (pissy little bastards, eh, what?) they unwisely tried to reform spelling, among many other things. The ferment of revolutionary thinking encourages all manner of disrespect for the standards that form the bedrock of sane societies. I understand they still have a few towns with indecent names, despite the long passage of time.

    Well, cheerio! :D

    people look very confused when i'm saying "lol" or "rofl" when i find sth very funny...

    oh yeah, and in some situations i'm using d2-affixes when i'm talking to friends who played d1 and/or d2, e.g. "handbag of gore; fast attack speed"

    The bolded words are the ones you should have capitalized (except for "haven't," where you forgot to include an apostrophe).

    Capitalization, apostrophes, spelling errors.

    The word "ha-ha" needs a space or hyphen. Capitalization.

    Capitalization. Lack of apostrophes.

    I'm sure glad you guys are here to teach us stupid Americans all about how to write proper English.
