Well, I thought it would be nice to have a thread about language problems.

I sometimes wonder what some expressions mean.
Can't find them in any dictionary.

For instance.. kewl...
It took a while to find out it means cool.
O yeah... What means cool...
Huh huh..

The word for today is.. OWNED
I see pictures with the word OWNED on it.
What the fuck does it mean?

OWNED means when you did better than someone, or totally beat them at their own game.

OWN3D is a leet speak variant of OWNED.

I hope this clears up any problems you may be facing online with that word.

Closest dictionary def.:

v. owned, own·ing, owns

To have control over: For a time, enemy planes owned the skies.


My interpretation:

Owning someone implies they are your slave, basically nothing compared to you. You may see people say "OWNAGE!" it means owning has just taken place, or is about to.
