Sorry, I can't translate beyond "Hey, look at me! I'm a rebel...look at my spelling! It's the shiznit!"

There might be something in there about dress patterns, too. Not sure.

I think it says, "I bought a new keyboard and can't figure out how it works." Either that or your friend is seriously ESL.

How old are you anyway, Bravo?

I think I need some alcohol now to dull the horror. Wendy's right: "reject me!" Foh sHuR! (Writing that hurt, by the way.)

oops i forgot the rest of his about me stuff:



"REal RECogNIZE REAL homiE"

Nosy people- if you have the time to actually worry about my business- get a life and a better job, lol. " DA HOMIE" aka TANU lol!

If you need to know the whole world to feel better about yourself- or need to be friends with everyone to feel accepted- grow up we are not in kindergarten. The best way to sum this up is - if everyone is your friend- no one is your friend. I do believe in having enemies; however, the best way to beat your enemy is to make your enemy your friend :) Oxy Moron, yes I know! "DA HOMIE aka TANU"


please also note that this guy is not hispanic.

and he grew up in an affluent chicago suburb.

thank you

Dearest old friend,

I have just returned to the United States of America. I am currently residing in Chicago where I am metriculating for my USMLEs. I am hoping to contact old acquaintences by using the internet site FaceBook. Are you still residing in Chicago. Has everything been satisfactory in your life, my old friend? Do you know of the "Jespers" part of this FaceBook.

Regards and hope to converse with you soon.

CaroGirl

I think you should respond with the following:

Dear Mr. Moron (or may I call you Oxy),

I do not wish to know your business. I do not care if you enjoy flauting authority, misspelling simple words, or insulting visitors to your Facebook page.

I hope you have less trouble deciphering my prose than I had deciphering yours.

Good day to you, Sir.

luv Bravo, fo shizzle

I have a feeling that in this case he's not studying for the United States Medical Licensing Exam. (I think that is what replaced National Board Exam which was required by many medical schools in addition to the courseload)

I keep wondering if there's some cypher in there. Did he always talk like this? (I assume, no, or you wouldn't have been disturbed by it.)

In college? You take the MCAT in college to apply to med school, then you take the first set of boards after two years of medical school.

Bravo, I would come up with serious cash money to see your FB buddy apply to my staid medical school using this as the personal essay one has to write about "tell us why you are choosing medicine as a career." It would be like Christmas morning and a chocolate fountain and a basket of puppies.

we're both done with college and he's studying for his boards.

this is difficult to accept, i know.

and he hasnt noticed the fact that i never "poked" him back or responded to his PMs.

odd.

A hata is a "hater".

I'm scared. I'm 51 years old and I actually understood that message... Maybe because I have a son who speaks fluent hiphop. Minus the swear words, fortunately. And he does it for a lark, not on a regular basis.

I recall hearing Dobie Gillis using the word "cubular" to describe a square.

Oh, and there's Dr John, from a song I can't remember(paraphrased), but I think it's the same era as Laugh-In:

"You're jus' a square, you know you ain't nowhere
You're jus' a square, you come from Delaware
...
You used to be a cube until you came unglued
...
etc."

Several definitions found in the urban dictionary. Not so sure I like all of 'em. ;)
Ah. Thanks for the references.

I was almost afraid to ask, since I've received it in rep comments before. I thought it might mean, "Wacky Oaf, Really Dumb."

Yeah. I have to say, doctors in their larval stage can be fairly unprepossessing. I graduated with a (now) neurosurgeon friend who I fondly remember crushing beer cans on his forehead, so. And I'm sure no one was overly excited about my future in medicine, based on my presentation as a punk listening, Doc Martens wearing sort of protogoth.

Still and all, I communicated with my friends in reasonably coherent sentences with a minimum of Anglo-Saxon derivatives. Fo shizzle.

This one from Urban Dictionary is wrong:


Also a multiple-byte unit of information in computer science/engineering.
Word is the the native data size for a computer or CPU, and it's not necessarily "multiple-byte."

"The 8080 has an 8-bit word."

But when I see "Word." I think of Cameo's "Word Up:"

Bravo - do you have a blog on Facebook? Can you start one? It might be interesting to write a high-fallutin' polysyllabic literary commentary comparing various philosophers, and perhaps weaving in some observations on the evolution of language.
