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

120 is an elite, nerdy way of saying "LOL!" See 5.

LOL means "Laughing out loud" and is a common acronym used in chatting everywhere.

LOL (or lol), written in 1337 is 101.
101 in binary is equal to 5 in decimal.
The factorial of five (5!) is 120.

So, the factorial of LOL (5) is 120. LOL! = 120

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.

(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".

The most annoying line a beginner Java programmer has to type in each one of their programs. This is also the line where most n00bish typos appear.
Comparison of Java to QBASIC

Java:

public class PrintHi{
public static void main(String args){
System.out.println("Hi");
}
}

QBASIC:

?"Hi"

Hmm, 95 characters or 5? Tough choice.

"To be or not to be, that is the question." It is believed that Shakespeare was actually a Java programmer and this famous line was originally recorded as

boolean question = (_2b)||!(_2b);

But that's just a legend... ;-)
...And according to boolean logic, the question is true.
