I keep seeing the phrase yo k se, no soy 100tifiko on Twitter, Facebook and Youtube comments. I understand what means yo que se, no soy ... It could be something like I don't know, I am not ..., but I can't figure out what 100tifiko means. I'd appreciate any help.

Thanks in advanance.

So write idiotic people, don't learn that Spanish: que should always be written like that and never, ever k. – c.p. Feb 9 at 12:28
A mí me desagrada totalmente cuando las personas echan a perder el idioma de esa forma. Cuál es la diferencia en tiempo de tecleo de "100tifiko" con "científico"? incluso, la forma correcta me salió más rápido teclear :-) Por otro lado, la "k" solo se debe usar en contadas palabras según la RAE. Por qué deformar el idioma usando indiscriminadamente esa letra? La gente se acostumbra a escribir mal, y luego cuando es necesario dar buena impresión, por ejemplo, en algún anuncio o buscando trabajo, no se dan cuenta de que cometen errores. – jstuardo Feb 9 at 16:21
No one (at least in Spain) speak like this. It's just a kind of slang that is now frequently used in internet or as a joke... but it's not a proper way to speak – frisinacho Feb 10 at 19:21

100 is cien

cien + tífiko should be slang for científico which is scientist

So something like I am not a scientist...

Its just a funny way of saying scientific (100=cien + tifico). Just like 1000itar means mil+ital = militar. 3.1416loto means pilot (pi+loto).

Remember to always answer a "Pa k kieres saber eso jaja saludos"

These terms are popularized through Instagram and Youtube mainly.

Then can I say the city Milan as 1000An, Cousin? – Sapikelio Jan 26 at 7:12
Yes, and 3.1416amonte is Piamonte. Hope it helps – Daniel Higueras Jan 26 at 12:51

Ambas frases, "yo ke no soy un 100tifiko" y "Pa k kieres saber eso jaja saludos", surgieron de respuestas a una pregunta en "Yahoo Answers", página en donde alguien escribe cualquier tipo de pregunta y la gente contesta (similar a ésta pero de temática abierta).

Alguien lo subió a las redes sociales y se hizo "viral".

Por otro lado, nadie dice: "1000itar" o "3.1416loto", por lo menos no aquí en Argentina. "3.1416loto" hasta me costó entender a qué se refería.

Aquí en España si se dicen ambas (alguno las dice al menos). +1 por poner el origen – Pablo SaudiBombsYemen Jan 30 at 20:34
I don't understand U :( – Sapikelio Feb 2 at 15:43

They are just funny Spanish memes. I think these expressions are not used even as slang, just for memes to make fun
