Headline translation: Let’s meet in real life, OK? I love you. (Not a lot of people know that.)
Kids these days have dirty minds.
That’s according to an updated list of Internet lingo by the company NetLingo. Phrases like “BRB” and “LOL” are now replaced with “FMLTWIA” and “TDTM.”
To find out the explicit truth, click here. (Don’t worry — it’s only a link to myfoxphilly.com.)
According to NetLingo, about 95 percent of parents (and, for that matter, many friends whom I spoke to) have no clue what these acronyms mean.

UCLA has a problem — big walls and baby squirrels. Whoever said college students are immature and lack the ability to do anything good should watch this video.

I’ve been honored this week with rankings from two very reputable sources in the world of journalism.
First, the college syndicate UWIRE named me one of the top 100 college journalists in the country. I’m proud to be following in the footsteps of respected TTN alumni Christopher Wink and Sean Blanda, both of whom made the inaugural list last year.
And today, an amazingly awesome blog known as the Cherry and What? named me the third most influential person on Temple’s campus. The C&W crew dug the old Cut to the Chase headshot out of the TTN archives, but I won’t hold it against them. Thanks to the C&W.
Seriously — add the award-winning Cherry and What? to your favorites and RSS feed. Definitely an entertaining read.
