This LOL Verifier checks to make sure you actually laughed


One of the most important aspects of a living language is that it’s always evolving. Humans are never satisfied to just take a word and use it, instead we like to put our own spin on things. Some of us even become writers. “Lol” is a good example of an ensemble of letters with an ever-changing meaning, which only gets more convoluted when human sincerity as interpreted on the internet is added to the perceptive stew of understanding.

Most of us are fairly across the modern usage of the term lol. Gone are the days of lots of love, unless you’re a senior citizen making an unintentionally hilarious Facebook post, complete with cry laugh emoji. Firmly cemented in our current vernacular, lol translates to laughing out loud, which is almost always also a lie.
