    L is the 12th letter of the English alphabet.

    C is the value of 13 in Hex.

    O is the 15th letter of the English alphabet.

    F is the value of 15 in Hex.

    LOL translates to CFC in Hex.

    So that's what I was refering to not chlorofluorocarbon. Although I do see that this could present itself as an issue of confusion

    After carefully reviewing your proposition that the universe should be converted to hexadecimal, I, Chief Magistrate Universal Plus the Seven Southern Counties of Indiana, have decided against it. (A) Your current, incomplete proposition does not declare what software will be used for this conversation (a moratorium exists for the usage of Microsoft software in projects universal and numerical); (B) a conversion to hexadecimal would break current quantum and general relativity software; and (C) the fine folks of the "Seven Southern Counties of Indiana" just plain don't like it when the universe changes like that.

    In all "seriousness,"

    If you want to submit a petition to convert the universe to hexadecimal as a Request for Comments, it would be best to date it for April 1, 2002 (maybe even in hex itself). All the best RFC's are released on April 1.
