I’m So Leet

You like me. You really, really, really, really, really, (add 1332 more “really’s”) like me.

I got a weird notification today from WordPress. It was a trophy for reaching 1337 likes on my blog. I was a bit confused. It wasn’t a round number.

Then I thought, WordPress knows me so well that they knew it would be right up my alley to celebrate a milestone so random and unround – if you don’t mind me creating that new word.

Finally my brain started to take over and I figured there had to be a deeper meaning behind the number 1337.

Next stop, Google. I really wonder what people did before Google was there to answer all of life’s tough questions.

I typed in “1337” and had my answer. It means, “Leet.” It comes from the word “elite.” And “elite” comes from “E-Lite” meaning, “Extraterrestrial Light Source.”

Okay, I made up that E-Lite part, but the rest is true! It’s Internet speak. It’s original use was Internet hacking. Isn’t this exciting!

To really spell it out for you, if you’re confused:

1 = L
3 = E
3 = E
7 = T

It’s code for I’m amazing. Or actually, you guys are amazing. The people who read my words and allow them to fester in their minds with a certain tone for about ten minutes or so.

So, readers, thank you for this trophy. You made it happen. You made me Leet.

Time to add it to my resume.
