When I was in early elementary school, this drawing was very popular. Some variations had the lines in the middle different, and others had it with a
joker-like hat or open on both ends; some were shorter than this, and some were taller, but they all stayed in the same general format: 3 lines on
top, 2 or 4 in the middle, and 3 at the bottom. I used to link them together in circles or other patterns. After I started getting older, I used it
less and less, and, to my knowledge, this symbol has fallen out of existence. I have no idea what it was called, and I've yet to run into a single
person who knows completely.
There are three main theories thrown around. One is that it was the logo of an Australian company called Stussy. I remember searching on Google images
a while ago and saw something similar to the picture I posted, but it had too many areas different to be called the same (interestingly, I can no
longer find their old logo). Another theory is that the symbol was popular among gangs back in the late 80s and early 90s. The third theory is that it
was from an old sports team, and I remember seeing the logo, but I can't remember which sports team it was from. Regardless, the logo, like the
Stussy logo, looked similar, but it had too many differences. One of the problems I have with these three theories is that this symbol is not
restricted to one specific area. I've talked to people online from most states in the US, most countries in Europe, Russia, Japan, Canada, Mexico,
and others -- they have seen the symbol, but NOT ONE PERSON has given me a definitive, clear answer on the origins of it or what it is called. I have
asked many other conspiracy sites, and they never came to a conclusion. I was reluctant to post this on ATS, because it's really silly when I think
about it, but since this is supposedly the best conspiracy site on the net, if there's anybody that knows anything about it who can provide solid
evidence, it would have to be the people on ATS.
It will be funny if everybody here knows about it, and I've just been left in the dark. Still, I'll take a chance.
