Popular acronym for the widely known phrase 'You Only Live Once'. People have split opinions; Some think it's a great phrase and a great motto to live by, while others think it's 'Carpe Diem' ('Seize the Day') for stupid people.

I, myself, think it's a much more useful acronym for the less known phrase 'You Obviously Love Oreos'.
Person 1: I got so drunk last night I killed my liver! YOLO!

Person 2: How does 'You Obviously Love Oreos' have anything to do with getting drunk?

Person 1: No, you don't understand. 'YOLO' means 'You Only Live Once'.

Person 2: But, isn't that the whole point of 'Carpe Diem'? Why is 'YOLO' needed?

The stupidest thing to come about EVER. It stands for "You Only Live Once." It is very popular on Twitter, and when people use it on said website, you can expect a tweet saying they will do something stupid.
I'm going to go jump off of this 4th floor balcony! #YOLO

I'm going to punch a person with anger management problems! #YOLO

I'm going to do something else really stupid that will possibly injure or kill me! #YOLO
