An acronym that means "Local Area Network" but is more often seen as "LAN Party" which is a gathering of geeks/computer gamers for the sole purpose of gaming and exchanging gigantic numbers of files.
So you think you can play in some shitty pub where you can ping rape everybody? Do it on LAN and then I might be impressed.

When two or more people setup their computers on the same local area network (LAN), and in most cases, play video games together. People lanning often host LAN Parties consisting of many people on the same LAN, and like to do things like pull allnighters and consume TONS of caffeine. Currently, most people like to lan together to play first person shooters, or strategic games in which it is very important to communicate.
George: Hey Fred, you wanna go see a movie tomorrow night?
Fred: Sorry dude, tommorow I'm gonna be Lanning with some friends.. You can come as long as you bring your own computer and LAN cable, though!
George: Well I don't know, it depends what you guys are gonna be playing.
Fred: Don't worry man, we're gonna be playin Starcraft and CounterStrike.
George: Sweet, I'm in!

Most likely an Asian person. Means "purple orchid" in Vietnamese and Chinese. Probably pretty, with long, or short black shiny hair. And "FOB" bangs. Can be quiet, but usually isn't. Fun to be around, and likes to take a lot of pictures. Good at sports, and is mature for their age. Has a big vocabulary, and draws or doodles. Smart, and tries their best. Sometimes perverted, and uses the term "That's what she said" loosely. Easy to fall in love with, and easy to be-friend. Stands below 5'2". A very good friend, and girlfriend. Will be successful in life.
