Happy LO Day! 44 years ago today, LO became the first message ever sent on ARPANET, the forerunner of the Internet. The word was originally meant to be LOGIN but the system crashed after just two letters and took an hour to reboot lol!

Speaking of logs, not many people realize that logs originally didn't come from trees, but rather were huge bundles of ice cream sticks. Finally, one day back in the latter portion of mid-Yesteryear times, somebody said, "I've just seen this here tree in a whole new way, I 'ave!"

And thus began the honorable sport of Competitive Tree Fucking.

LO???

THAT’S NOT EVEN A WOOOOORD!

Besides that, Tree-Fucking is so 1987. Which is also what year you started this boring-arse thread.

LOL!
