Aw, I like it that they think of some words as cool.
Everyone's gonna be like "OMG, they're using such cool words!" Ahh. Hahaha. I'm happy.
There should be a "cool" label in LDOCE. Maybe a warning, like "Watch out, this word is very cool!", and also "Are you sure you want to even see this word? It's kinda meh.".
@GWarner Thank you, that's very good.

Lol? Sounds oddly specific, and no, I'd say, but then again I'm no MAR, and I'm expecting a punchline regardless.
It's funny when you unintentionally make your sentences rhyme, and it's also awkward when they're about something serious.
@snailcar Cool words could be a hot topic.
@M.A.R. Did you know when your computer gets too hot, it sometimes freezes? It's an interesting phenomenon.
It was raining a couple days ago, and one of my uni buddies had an open window, and the rain was dripping on his extension cord, directly into the socket which his computer was plugged into. He told me it went boom, and he freaked out; the whole extension cord got fried somehow, but luckily his power adapter, or whatever it's called, sustained no damage.
He lives to fight another day.
