How to Destroy Your Intellectual Opponents in One Easy Lesson

Think of something you don't like. Alex Rodriguez. Macroeconomics. Medicare. Opera. Ice hockey. Hayek's Nobel Prize.

Now to deliver a devastating attack on the object of your scorn, just do this: Type the name of the thing, followed by LOL, e.g.:

"Hayek's Nobel Prize. LOL."

That's it. The simple fact that the letters "LOL" appear after the name of the thing you don't like all by itself acts as proof positive of its worthlessness.

  2. "Sometimes a belly laugh is worth a thousand syllogisms."

    And yeah, by corollary, sometimes it's not. Even much of the time it's not.

    It's telling which time is which, darnit. So tricky!

  3. Haha, the one thing I didn't expect to get out of this when I bookmarked this blog was a trolling lesson.
