The E-Laugh Scale is a scale that compares what people type in on e-mails/text when they "laugh" to what they are really doing as they type it. The scale was developed after scientific research based upon people's real actions when they type in certain laughing abbreviations over the internet. The E-Laugh Scale is as follows:
1 - haha - sitting there staring at the screen, said only to make the other person feel good about their story.
2 - lol - sitting there staring at the screen, said because the person thinks what the other person said could be accepted as funny, but doesn't really find it funny at all.
3 - lmao / lmfao - sitting there staring at the screen, said because the person thinks what the other person said is a little hilarious and puts on a small and unnoticeable grin.
4 - LOL / LMAO / LMFAO - the person looks at the message, reads it over again to make sure he's reading it right, then leans back in his/her chair with a kind of big smile, because he thought it was a little more funny.
5 - HAHAHAHAHA - the person looks at the message and thinks its pretty funny, and begins to give a small, quiet laugh, because he thought what the other person said was just plain funny.
6 - LOLOLOLOL - the person thinks the message was pretty funny and gives a slightly louder, but short laugh.
7 - A combination of 4, 5, and 6 - the person thinks the message is very funny, and starts to laugh really hard.
a person is watching his friend text his girlfriend
