Tonight, Echidna Boy and I were playing (what else?) MarioKart.   “I’ll tell you what, I’ll choose the exact same Kart as you, so we’ll be identical.”

“Oh, so you can say ‘we were exactly alike and I still pwned you?’,” I responded.

“Mom, no one says ‘pwned’ anymore.  It’s back to ‘owned.’  ‘Pwned’ is so, so 2006 — a dark, bleak time for the Internet.”

Alrighty, then.  Good to know.  This from a kid who was born a couple years after I first went on the Web.
