I was reviewing one of my threads and noticed a user had the Black Lodge insignia in their avatar.
I wanted to give them the secret gesture of the Bookhouse Boys - so I tried to find an image of it.
THERE ARE NONE
..I watched Twin Peaks when it first came out and was a HUGE fan - my Grandma even used to tape it for me. Seen the movie, I own the sound track..
About 2 years ago I downloaded the entire original series so my Kissy could watch it with me. I quote it all the time.
It is in my opinion one of the greatest things to happen to TV. Needless to say I've seen it many, many, many times.
In short, the Bookhouse Boys were formed to fight the evil in the Trees. They're the Earth-bound essence of the White Lodge, in constant struggle with
the Black Lodge.
They only had a few members, and they had a secret gesture they would give to other members.
Anyone remember what it was?
These guys do:
NOT ANY MORE - AND IT NEVER FREKING WAS.. This is what it is now..
From the wiki: "Like the Freemasons, they had their own secret gesture, a stroke with a finger on the temple"
It WAS NOT a 'finger to the temple' - it was 'a stroke with the finger to the side of the nose'!!
What the actual f32k - I just found this; it's still developing..
I'm going to try to find more residue in text or image of the 'secret gesture'... and if I can I'll add it to this post.
This may not be huge to you - and you may not like TP - but this is SERIOUSLY MASSIVE to me.
So I was able to find it in text in a few places..
"I've often seen co-conspirators in television and the movies tap the side of their nose to remind the other party of their understanding. [...] So
what's the origin of this gesture as it relates as a sign between conspirators?"
A user answers.."see also Laurel and Hardy, and the Bookhouse Boys (from twin peaks)" ask.metafilter.com...
Here you can read where someone mentions the "nose-signal" in reference to the Bookhouse Boys, and another user argues the 'nose-signal' with him
saying "Hawk is one of the Bookhouse Boys, which explains the use of the secret temple-touch. (Again, *not* a nose-signal.)" -- That's from
In Coop's dream, Laura gives him the signal (3:05):
She is letting him know she knows he's in the Bookhouse Boys.
That's all I can find for now - if I find more I'll have to add them in a new post.

I've watched all the seasons of Twin Peaks, including the new one. It's been a long time however, since I've watched the first and second season.
What's weird is that when I saw the first pics of the guys with the finger on their noses I thought "hmm yeah I guess I remember that". But when I saw
the actual bookhouse boys with their fingers under their eyes, I went "ooohh yeah, that's it!".
I think it's easy to remember things wrong when other people get it wrong in the first place. I've had my own weird Mandela effect moments, but I
think this one is just a case of other people doing the wrong gesture to begin with, which caused you to believe it was the right one.

I think Mandela Effect needs its own forum ... so I can have it removed from my ATS to prevent me seeing it. The last three threads you've done on
Mandela Effect have been absolute nonsense.
Logic would say Lurker1 could do a quick youtube search and show the "two secret signals"..
Would make me look like an actual fool in no time..
I mean, you trust his opinion right?
..but he won't post. It doesn't exist.
What would you say if Lurker1 came back and said he couldn't believe it, but there's no more 'nose sign' - you trusted him before, would you
trust him after? Would you lend credence to the Mandela Effect then?
At this rate, I imagine an old fellow, laying in a hospital bed, in and out of delirium, suddenly grabbing a nurses arm and in a state of clarity
saying "Mandolin. Mandolin!!" as he remembers things from his youth that he never took real notice of, but have seemingly changed over the course of
time... to once more succumb to his sorry mental state of dissociation, and forgets again.
Pretty sure he used to fly steam powered rockets into the firmament.
