Embarassing/Funny IM

I came acoss this today http://www.whatisgooglewave.com/, its basically a new type of IM google is making, but on steroids, one of its features is this:

A wave is live. With live transmission as you type, participants on a wave can have faster conversations, see edits and interact with extensions in real-time.


Now to be honest... I don't like the sounds of that, I mean surely I'm not the only person who's used the backspace button a gazillion times!
Just imagine no longer being able to write something and as you're about to send it think "hmm maybe I shouldn't say this because its innapropriate/could lose my job for it/that person wouldn't want to talk to me again."

So what do you think of it? and also in this thread any IM convo that went awkwardly wrong, or funny ones too.

I don't even know what to think of that.

I would not like this idea. I make the most hilarious errors most of the time. Well, hilarious to people who are not me. I'm one of these people who substitutes wrong words in, and frequently they are most unfortunate and revealing about my dark inner thoughts.

Saying that, it would be quite fun to lurk around and watch drama unfold, until my brain started to melt out of my ears from the twelve year olds swearing in capslock.

LOL, just...a bunch of crazy Filipino-American kids imitating the broken English of their parents, pssh. XD

Oh, god, I'm the same way. That or I just say things the wrong way and they are taken in that matter, lol. D:

This one's kinda cute.

I make enough mistakes as it is on MSN
I don't want people to see even more
especially if I start typing something that may be mean and think better of it..

damn I had a good IM screenshot to show but it's on my other computer.. damn
basically my friend was saying that one of her friends drew porn and that the art teacher liked it and put it up around the school
I said, "ohh you mean they do life drawing."
and my friend was like "ye aka porn"

Oh god I remember an IM with you which I thought was embarassing on my part, when you thought I was spanish and I didn't know how to respond to that at all, because you were watching a film with spanish zombies or something xD

On the subject of the Sims 3:
Mr.Aids wrote:My guy tends to be a rich charismatic guy who's a hit with others but does not depend on social relations.
It mirrors me perfectly!

I'm just adding this till something better comes up.

Mr Aids: so have you seen Harry Potter yet?
Pyroman: nah
I want to, though
Mr Aids: so you can be blown away by the awesome special effects and teenage angst?
Pyroman: mainly effects

I'd never actually get a post out... I take too long, and excessively use Backspace to cover up my unintelligible screw-ups.
