Our culture is filled with idioms and clichés that have been around forever. But many of them are losing their significance because our society has changed so much.

It’s time we start updating our clichés for the digital age.

  • Never send a PC to do a Mac’s job.
  • What doesn’t kill you makes you go viral on YouTube.
  • That’s a hard act to unfollow.
  • If at first you don’t succeed, refresh, refresh again.
  • When God closes a window, He opens a tab.
  • A journey of a thousand websites begins with a single click.
  • He who ROFL’s last, ROFL’s longest.
  • Rickroll me once, shame on you. Rickroll me twice, shame on me!
  • Different keystrokes for different folks.

 

What would you add to the list??

a 404 error does not become a mistake until you refuse to recode it. ("an error does not become a mistake until you refuse to correct it")he who clears his history is.... is bound to forget websites (he who does not know history is condemned to repeat it)you can lead a person to twitter, but you can't make him tweet. (lead a horse to water, but you can't make him drink)
