Do you use internet slang in everyday conversation?
I use the word "pwn" a lot. "Noob", too. A few days ago I was crossing the street, some guy almost ran me over and I said "f%#king noob."

I can't stand it when people say "OMG" in everyday conversation, though.

12. Occasionally, but not nearly as much as some people I know.
Most namely one of my now-ex coworkers (ex since I just quit my job) and my little sister.
