I love this word. If anyone says it I know that I don't want to be anywhere near them ever. It's even more useful than "Hold my beer and lookit this!"
 
2012-12-10 04:23:36 PM  
I actually still don't know what it is. I've seen a few people on Fark use it, like "totes." I know what 'Schmoyoho' is because my kids love that "I Love Cats" video. I'll guess its some derivative of that.

Now I shall RTFA and find out--then report back to you.

It is the stupidest of words.

"YOLO - therefore I'm going to quit smoking and invest a significant portion of my income into a balanced retirement fund"

makes just as much sense, but it's typically used as:

"YOLO - so hold my beer and watch this".

FTA : On a much more serious note, it even resulted in the death of a young aspiring rapper, Ervin McKinness, who tweeted, "Drunk af going 120 drifting corners #farkIt YOLO" minutes before he died in a fiery one-car crash

Sometimes "serious" equals "hilarious".

I first heard this at my daughters HS graduation this June... From the valedictorian no less.

Sometimes it takes the eyes of the young to see such profound truths.

Swag still throws me because we called all the chintzy gift crap the radio station interns gave out "swag" "Sealed with a gift" some 20 years ago.. and there has been "Scientific Wild Ass Guess" for at least 35 years.. probably MUCH longer.

Now it's Swagger...

I am convinced "YOLO" is an ancient curse / incantation originally designed to summon the spirit of death.

24.media.tumblr.com

Uttering it brings such a dark force to your doorstep that only seeks out to snuff out the flickering flame of your life. This shade wants to prove you are oh so right that - you only live once.

mbillips: I've been seeing this meme, but didn't know what it meant, and didn't care enough to look it up. Now I did, and I'm that much more culturally aware of stuff stupid people care about. Thanks, Fark!

/Srsly, Twitter is retarded.


I've hardly ever seen it and I agree with you. Also I just recently found out what totes meant.

/I'm in my 30s so not particularly old.

MakerGrey: Shouldn't it be YLOO? You live only once? It seems that "only" is modifying "once", not "live". Any other pedants wanna get pedantic?


THIS! MOTHERFARKING THIS! You cannot imagine how much it pleases me to find another soul who understands the use of "only" as a modifier.

Splitting an infinitive in English is PERFECTLY FINE, GODDAMMIT! Some asshole pedant from the mid-18th century applied Latin grammar to English grammar, and people have been afraid to boldly go ever since.

Granted - and darned good point. Language eveolves and all that - and afterall, he was just one man.
Though it is ironic that I learned more and better grammar from five years of Latin classes than I did from all of my years in English classes.

That's because the Romans were the ultimate orthodox, and about rules for the sake of rules. The "English" are a bunch of hybrid mutts stealing language bits from every conqueror that showed up on the isles.

Wow! Where'd you find that? Unless there is another Yolo I don't know about, the population sign is WAY off. Yolo is tiny little town, IIRC it has three streets N/S and two running perpendicular to that. I don't think 300 people live there. Other than houses, I think there is only a single church there.

Didn't Bilbo have a cousin Yolo? Or maybe it was one of the Brandybucks....
It is a sort of Tookish name, though, even if it is more hobbity by far than Paladin, for example.

You mean "MISunderstands."

Hopefully, you will learn that disjuncts modify the entire sentence they are in, not just single words.

Wikipedia has a List of Hobbits. I don't see a "Yolo," though some names come pretty close.

Good times, good times. Especially loved discovering the spell-immune mobs.

I haven't played since early Cata, but I don't regret any of those wonderful memories. It was a pretty awesome way to ignore the Bush years.
