Did you know that 1337 = Elite?

1337So, I told my boyfriend today about how Good Morning, Joe got 1337 likes.  He said “So you’re elite? Nice!” .  I asked him what the hell that meant and he laughed.  He said that 1337 spells “leet” as in “elite” and his friend laughed out loud.

“Okay, guys.  No need to make fun of me.” I said.

They promised me that they were being serious and told me to look it up.  So I Googled it.

What does 1337 mean?

Answer:
1337 = leet as in elite (type 1337 on a calculator and turn it upside-down)
It can mean that someone is very good at a game, or anything really.
It’s the opposite of noob, as in newbie.

So, turns out (as usual) my genius boyfriend is right.  In gaming, it means elite.  Pretty cool huh?

I learned something new today!

See you tomorrow morning!
