first_img“Alay” style is ‘a form of the Indonesian language that has undergone “excessive leet transformation”. Contrary to the popular belief that it is “destroying” the national language, grammatical standards are met in contrast to the modern Indonesian slang language. Similar to the jejebets, alay texts offer an alternative in compressing words so that they are under the 160 character-limit in text messages, often to the point that they are impossible to read. Rules in capitalization are mostly ignored.’”  #tYp3 LyK tHi5 4. Stop [email protected], an Indonesian international football player, tweeted “STOP STRESSING” in response to “Hello Indonesia” becoming trending topic. #StopStressingCheck out the rest of the list after the jump! As for Ophiuchus. This is an old hoax. Historically, Ophiuchus has never been listed as a constellation in the sidereal zodiac. It is a constellation out there, but it’s off the ecliptic (that is, it’s not along the path of the Sun through the sky). I’ve read that Ptolemy mentions it in his literature as an off-zodiac constellation, meaning that the Sun never travels through it. In any event, there are some two dozen constellations that touch the ecliptic; but the sidereal zodiac uses just 12 of them.The origin of the hoax is a sci-fi author named John Sladek — a satire writer who died in 2000. Sladek liked to prank astrology, and he has a whole novel about a fictitious 13th sign based on Ophiuchus he called Arachne that was “suppressed by the scientific community.” The Ophiuchus hoax first made its rounds in the late 1990s and pops up again like those emails from the guy in Nigeria who wants you to send him your bank account number so he can transfer $15 million your way.#Ophiuchus 8.

To help you, we took a look at the most-buzzed-about trends and picked 10 you may have missed this week. Here are the top trending Twitter topics for the week ending on January 14:1. Representative Giffords Shooting Via WhatTheTrend.com:US Congresswoman Gabby Giffords was shot in Tucson, Arizona last Saturday by suspected gunman Jared Lee Loughner. The rampage killed 6 and wounded 13. Giffords is still in critical condition, recovering from a bullet wound to the brain. In the aftermath, many individuals and news organizations placed the blame for the violence at what they saw as overheated political rhetoric, particularly from the right, though there is no evidence yet that caused Loughner’s actions. The person facing the most criticism was former Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin, who had distributed a map during the recent midterm election with crosshairs (later termed “surveyor’s marks”) over Democratic districts, including Giffords.  #Gabrielle Giffords, #Jared Lee Loughner 2. Jar Jar Binks / Phantom Menace The Star Wars character we all love to hate, Jar Jar Binks, was trending on Twitter as the movie was shown Saturday on the U.K.’s ITV television channel. #Jar Jar Binks 3. tYp3 LyK tHi5 According to the all-knowing Wikipedia, [Photo: Wookipedia] 5.
