What does the "owned" accurately mean? TIA
Does it mean "Of or belonging to oneself or itself"? That is -- you don't have this, but I particularly have it! Rolling Eyes

Hmm, I had to look at the other images in that folder to get the context.

It appears to be being used by some teenagers to denote the concept of being dominated or disrespected.

Look at some of the other pictures and you'll see what I mean. skip picture two cause it's just a naked guy for some weird reason.

All the other pictures I looked at showed similar results in Unreal Tournament, showing the score and the slang term "owned".

There were also some screen shots of IM chats in which these kids to be playing tricks on people and then writing "owned" in big letters.

Anywho, it's not a mainstream way to use it, this is adolescence and it's lack of subtlety with language.

What I got for the present is the teenagers want to show their privilege with nitty gritty manner. That is, with labelling "owned" on a pic, their "hegemony" on the pic would be confirmed by their own? Smile
Thanks CrK.

Yes, as far as slangs go this is about the lamest I've seen though.
