Was going to say the same thing. Looking at the site, it's definitely nothing like the Digg I used to use.

Fireproof: I only skimmed it, but never does it explain why "EK 1" is used in India.


"A fascinating example that doesn't fall into either category is "ek 1," which was brought to my attention by an Indian coworker. "ek 1," which loosely translates to "I rate this number one" - the "ek" itself means number in Hindi - is commonly used as an affirmative response to a joke. If you find something to be funny, you could always type "haha" or "hehe" in India, but you can also signal your enjoyment by responding "ek 1." "

I skimmed it too, just to find out what this one meant.

Fail for not mentioning "jajaja" which I've seen from Spanish speakers.

I would guess it's from the awkwardness of not having a separate word for "a" and "one", so they want to differentiate. From what I remember and Google translate, ek means both of those, and not "numbers".

I might have to start reading them again.

There was more content in TFA than I've seen in the past 20 or so Fark links. And I didn't get any 'web of bullshiat' stuff.

4. Brazil (149 million internet users): haha, kkk, rsrs, huehue
5. Indonesia (143 million internet users): wkwk, xixi

It would be best not to get the two countries mixed up. In Brazil, "xixi" is childish slang for urine.

Does that mean "xaxa" is slang for poop? That could cause some russo-brazilian conflicts.

Nope. That would be "cocô" - but it's important to note the accent on the second syllable. Spelling it without one, as "coco," means "coconut." Getting the pronunciations mixed up could provide some amusement to the locals.

Good to know - next time I go to Brazil I will be extra-cautious before ordering anything flavoured with coconut...

Well, this explains why I've seen Brazilians referred to online as "hues", although I still haven't figured out whether that's supposed to be derogatory or not.
