At work today we had a meeting and they were showing a video demonstrating the manueverability of a russian SU-30MK. That jet was doing some very slick moves in the air flying around, and at one point I said out loud "DO A BARREL ROLL!"

instead everyone just kinda stared at me blankly. :(

I have said "fap", like "What's taking him so long?" "He's probably fapping" and people don't get it. I think only Internet people know that word.

Indeed.

Lulz, yeah that's one of the reasons I try to limit my internet 'slang' in the real world, it just gets awkward.

Us Finns have no sense of humor so I never make jokes anyway.

Yeah, but I've tried to make jokes that people would actually get even if they weren't on the internet all day, and people still don't get it.

And never try to joke around my brother, he will give only you a dead expression.

All the time. It's gotten to the point where most people don't know anything about current events (Actually important current events), or basic history, so there goes most of my material right there.

There's an easy fix to that: just end the joke with a reference to sexual organs. Should work every time.

Serious post:
The internet has desensitized me to a degree where nothing shocks or disturbs me anymore, and as a result of it my humor doesn't always receive positive reactions. This is especially true if my judgment is impaired by alcohol, I've almost gotten myself into big trouble a few times because of some jokes/antics made in very poor taste.

The Barrel Roll fad comes from the 1997 Nintendo flying simulator/space combat game Starfox 64. It came from a phrase that one of the character's main wingmen, Peppy Hare, repeated throughout the game. The fad may have been started by members from the Life, Universe, and Everything board on GameFAQs.

I shall lose sleep over that technicality jmac. I should have known you were an avid GameFaqs poster in the Life, Universe, and Everything board back in 2004. My hopes were indeed dashed.

Exactly, I'm amazed by how many people nowadays who are out of the loop, or have little to no understanding of important, historic events.
