1) An asian-originating emoticon of someone on their hands and knees. O is the head, R is the arms and torso, Z is the legs. It symbolises failiure or despair.

2) A pan-dimensional race of green fish-like aliens from Star Control 2. Speak in a language so complex it gets mangled in universal translators, to hilarious effect.
1) Why does everyone hate me so much? orz

orz is used in Japan's net-slang terms. "orz" is used to show when you are in a quick depression and sad or have given up on something.

How it came to be this is that orz looks like a person on his hands and knees with their head handing lowly, much like commonly seen in depressed anime characters.

If you still have trouble seeing orz as a person, o is the head, r is the abdomen and the arm, and z is the wasite, thigh, and the leg kneeling.

Also, orz can be replaced by OTZ if you are to use capitals, but it looks better in orz.
"Dude I just lost a bet orz."

"I left my GF's house with blue balls orz"

"I'm sad orz"

"I failed a test orz"

orz in terms of korean usage, means respect. orz can be seen as pounding head on the floor, but if you think; it could be someone kneeling.
