It's original definition was "Laughing out loud" (also written occasionally as "Lots of Laughs"), used as a brief acronym to denote great amusement in chat conversations.

Now, it is overused to the point where nobody laughs out loud when they say it. In fact, they probably don't even give a shit about what you just wrote. More accurately, the acronym "lol" should be redefined as "Lack of laughter."

Depending on the chatter, its definition may vary. The list of its meanings includes, but is not limited to:
1) "I have nothing worthwhile to contribute to this conversation."
2) "I'm too lazy to read what you just wrote so I'm typing something useless in hopes that you'll think I'm still paying attention."
3) "Your statement lacks even the vaguest trace of humor but I'll pretend I'm amused."
4) "This is a pointless acronym I'm sticking in my sentence just because it's become so engraved into my mind that when chatting, I MUST use the meaningless sentence-filler 'lol.'"

See: lmao, lmfao, rofl, lawl, heh, haha, lolol, and 120 for similarities.
Statement: Sorry if I'm not too cheery, my best friend just died yesterday.
Worthless Reply: lol

Statement: The golden ratio is truely an intersting aspect of not only mathematics, but art as well.
Worthless Reply: lol

Statement: ... And then he says, "Your mom goes to college!"
Worthless Reply: lol

Statement: Hey, are you doing anything tonight? You could come over to my house and play some Unreal Tournie...
Worthless Reply: lol, ok

Power is most simply defined in Physics as the rate at which work is done. More specifically, it's the ratio of work to time. See below for an interesting usage of "power."
<crazychik> i know i have all the power in our relationship
<geekguy> Power is work/time. And work is force*displacement. And since you never move off your fat ass, you're not causing any displacement, which in turn, means you have no power.

On most computer applications, F1 is the keyboard shortcut to bring up the help menu. Thus, the phrase "Press F1" is most appropriately given as a reply to anybody who needs help, especially in the psychiatric sense.
<Joe> Oh my god, at lunch today, everybody stopped talking and I said, "Crap, the chat died." I really need to stop wasting time on IRC.
<Phil> Dude, you really need help. Seriously. Press F1.

A random insult word. It's used especially by those who are deeply involved in their trig homework, though it really has no definite meaning.
*Phil is silently doing his trig homework*
*Jackie spills his snack all over the lunchroom floor*
*Phil jumps up*
Phil: YOU ASSTANGENT!
Jackie: What the hell is an asstangent?
Phil: I have no idea.

(true story =P)

1) An insult used when no other can be thought of or when all others have been used up.

2) One who is extremely clueless or unskilled, especially in the fields of mathematics and computers; the opposite of a geek or nerd

"1337" typed with the shift-key pressed. Seen most commonly from n00bs who type in all caps (but are too stupid to use the caps lock key), or by those making fun of n00bs.
<n00b> OMG HOW U KIL ME U MUST B !##&
<me> Stfu, n00b.

(Definition A)
The 1337 way of noting that you must leave. As most people chatting online are lazy, they always look for shortened ways to convey their messages. In this way, the evolution of this term has inarguably reached its peak.

"Gotta go" -> "g2g" -> "g to g" -> "g/g" -> "1"

Thus, from idiom to abbreviation to mathematical ratio, we have 1.

(Definition B)
Again, along the lines of 1337, groups of 1s may be used to end exclamatory sentences, usually for the purpose of mocking n00bs who greatly overuse exclamation marks and fail to release the 1 key before the "Shift" key. May be used with extra extensions such as "one", "eleven", "sin(x)^2+cos(x)^2", or "-(e^(pi*i))". See the example for greater detail.

(Definition C)
For younger children, especially those recently potty-trained, a brief system of number codes is used to prevent embarrassment when a child audibly requests to use visit the restroom in public. Urination is referred to as "1", excrement is "2".
