An abbreviation for the question "Age, Sex, Location?" Used in chats with unknown people to determine those 3 variables. Caution: The reply is not neccessarily true.

Spawned from the insidiuous chatrooms of AOL, this question has proliferated through IRC, AIM, ICQ, and other remote communication protocols.

The popularity of this phenomenon has several theories. The most popular of these is the theory that AOL users have infected the rest of the internet. This occurs through protocols outside those of the AOL internal network. Another reason is that AOL users flee to other service providers, but take their habits with them.

Sample dialogue:
