variations of the peace sign?
Like this post? Yes | No    

one night, me and two of my friends were sitting around drinking. and the one friend, whos' house we were at, has a flag he gets everyone to sign. and on it, my friend signed "peace and love" and put a peace sign next to it. except he didn't do the usual one like that, with three lines. he didn't put the line in the middle, and it just had the two. it looks like the mercedes logo, or something. and i said, "hey man, you drew your peace sign wrong." and we got into a big discussion about it, and both of these guys said that there are many variations of it, and there's even one with 5 lines.

so..ugh, is it true?

I guess it boils down to 2 things. 1)Ignorance: You didnt know, now you do. Problem solved 2) Stupidity: Your friends dont know what their talking about and were indeed, intoxicated.


Same thing for the anarchist "movement" man. The angsty teens were ignorant to the ABC or even the Anarchist fist logo (Way cooler than that A by any standard) and then stupidity kicked in as they payed for their 50 dollar A shirts with a credit card then proceded to call their friend on a cell phone to tell them...

There was a post related to this on the previous forums. And if I remember correctly the peace sign with the middle line isn't actually a peace sign. It has somethign to do with chemicals or something.

As far as I know.. the 'peace' sign really is a sign that protest The Bomb (was a big deal in the '60's).. the shape of a nuclear explosion is that of a mushroom/tree.. and when you draw a that very simplistic, it's a line with two branches. The 'peace' sign is just that, but put upside down, to make clear that you are opposed to The Bomb or nuclear power in general.

Over a period of time however, the sign became a more general symbol in the cry for peace.

At least.. that's my story. Here in the Netherlands we also call it the 'ban the bomb' sign (although kids know it as the 'spice girls sign' as well.. *sigh*).
