    CZHunter: Read my mind

    Haha, just kidding. That'd actually be a pretty cool thing to actually have invented. It's like when you invent a little fad and everyone uses it. It makes you feel special and I suppose if billions of people around the world use it it's even more incredible :-)

    Thats really quite cool :-) , how awesome would it be to know thousands of people use your idea to express their emotions in text. I personally find the little nose pretty gay though, good old : )

    By including this in your signature you relinquish all respect by me and any relative incarnations I might be in at the time. Noob

    Never knew it was so old :-)

    I doubt very many people actually use that nose thingy anymore though, but that's how it started out so we might as well recognize it.

    That's pretty cool, actually.
    To think, " :-)" is 25 years old...older than me...

    Then people started to butcher his idea like people do to Krinkles with Madness ripoffs...
    With things like:


    =D
    >:|
    >=}
    >:3
    =3
    8==D

    ...um

    Wow... Some of the comments are epic
    :-L (that's supposed to be a fag hanging out the mouth but I think this may be a bit ambitious)
    It would be pretty awkward, having fags hanging from your mouth...

    Sort of weird how such a simple thought has been going, basically as long as the internet has...
