1. the tendency to write abnormally long sentences with heavy punctuation after reading a novel by Charles Dickens

2. the tendency to write or speak in a way similar to how the narrator or characters wrote or spoke in a piece of entertainment you recently experienced
if you'd rather not read a long and rambling novel, you can usually experience the Charles Dickens effect by watching Gilmore Girls: after watching it, you may find that you have the abnormal ability of speaking inhumanly fast and dishing out comebacks so witty and tactful that they should be against the law.

a word, phrase, acronym, emoticon, or babble appended to the end of a typed line in chat in order to make the typist feel that he has decreased the severity or conviction of what he typed. often used by an insecure person who wishes to test the waters of what he is saying without appearing serious and committed to it.

John: "What? Robert's awesome."

Pete: "I hate Robert, asdkfjadsf."
John: "Robert's a great guy."
Pete: "Oh yeah, I agree."

Pete: "Robert's gay ;x"
John: "Dude, he's definitely straight."
Pete: "I was just kidding, bro. I know he's straight."

Pete: "Why does Robert act so stupid? lol."
John: "Actually, I think he usually acts pretty intelligently."
Pete: "Oh, my tone was meant to imply that I meant the opposite of what I was saying. Irony, you know? You just didn't catch it."
John: "Right... can you stop trying to use the insecurity indicator on me? It's an obvious indicator that you're insecure."

A piece of seemingly random typing that one usually says after saying something embarrassing. It actually has the hidden meaning of placing the blame of the embarrassing piece of text upon Jews, who are also being called jerks.
"When i was 12 my friends and I snuck into a rated R movie and as i was walking up the steps some one tripped me i went tumbling down the steps, but it doesn't end there. i landed on some one's lap!!! i landed in their popcorn and coke and the worst thing was that it was my school principal, not a good thing, i get in enough trouble at school and to top it landed in his food at a rated R movie. so the story still doesn't end there as i was walking out to clean myself off to the bathroom i ran into one of the cutest guys in school...dripping in coke and sticky buttery popcorn i ran into the bathroom stumbling the entire way. it was so embarrasing and the worst thing was i got in trouble for sneaking in the movie and for well you know ruining my clothes."
