explain xkcd: It's 'cause you're dumb.
Revision as of 15:05, 5 December 2012 by Waldir
I thought the words "like" and "hang out" were references to facebook's "like" and google's "hang out". What do the native speakers think? 22.214.171.124 (talk) 07:56, 5 December 2012 (UTC) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)
- Not in this case- here they're just being used as the everyday terms that facebook and google co-opted. 126.96.36.199 (talk) 08:12, 5 December 2012 (UTC) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)
- Native speaker here: there doesn't seem to be anything distinctive about the use of 'like' and 'hang out' in this comic to indicate they might be references. 188.8.131.52 (talk) 10:33, 5 December 2012 (UTC) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)
- The words aren't out of place otherwise, so it just might be a (big) coincidence. I still find it likely to be true. 184.108.40.206 11:18, 5 December 2012 (UTC)
- Another native speaker here. You typically would not "hang out" – in real life – with people you don't "like" – as in you like your friends. There's nothing in the comic to make me think there's any connection with Facebook or Google+. 220.127.116.11 11:44, 5 December 2012 (UTC)
