So originally "mate" would mean either freind (informal); or someone who you were planning on impregnating
/ getting impregnated by (depending on the reader's gender, if they have
one at all) The internet
and texting alike meant people
were more interested in saying
"m8" to save time, however, etymology
clearly shows that the words carry less emotion, in such instances as people
"m8" when they
dont mean it ... (see example)
brings the nation back to the point of "mEIGHT" whereupon they
can realise their mistake in the first
place and mock anyone who uses "m8", and ridicule it for its destruction of human nature
Adam: alryt m8
MSN participant: er ... hello .. mate ...
Adam: u ok m8?
MSN particpant (slightly vexed): yeh, I'm ok, u alright yourself?
Adam: yeh i'm ok m8, r u alryt?
): erm ... look seriously I'm alright, you're alright, was there anything you wanted
to talk about
Adam: yeh m8, im jus chattin to sum of my msn peeps
Normal MSN participant (back to normal state when he realises
Adam is simply a silly little beggfreind
who's emotions are replaced with Newspeak
, he therefore no longer gives a shit): that's nice
Adam: yeh, neway
I'm a little cunt
and I keep chattin in cycles
cos I'm a little cunt
who has no personality of his own, I hide behind letters
and digits, I ain't even got the guts to say "meight", not in real life anyway
Normal MSN participant: ur a cunt m8
