    I drew this back in like 2010 all the time, that's when it go introduced into our school. It was like an infection. Either it was one kid went "Hey so I found this cool symbol" or he was just drawing it and we all went "WHOA THAT'S SO COOL" and all picked it up.

    i feel like the reason it sticks with people is because when you draw it perfectly it’s super satisfying and so you keep trying to do it perfectly again and again without realizing it. just me?....ok

    I found a pic on 4chan featured that s but it was actually on a painting from 17th or 18th century. I think the op was talking about the symbol and the thread was about it. S was the same not even a bit was different. But it seemed it was a talisman somekind. Or a coin i guess.... Welp i recommend 4chan despide its stigma

    To me it was always the Stussy S, because it featured prominently on their clothing in the 90s. Edit: Unbeliveable. only 2:30 in and you've already debunked that. I'm quite flabbergasted that there isn't one photo of a shirt with that symbol on it. Time to question my life again.

    I'm from Iraq and I love designing logos and signs and I've always seen the symbol as an 8 not an S, also something interesting, I made a code language when I was 12 years old and my favorite number is 8 since I was a kid and still is, and my name when I converted it in the code language appeared to be 'thetah' which is so similar in pronunciation to greek letter 'theta', so I designed a symbol with elliptic shape that resembles both 'theta' and number 'eight' and I named my design 'th8a' or 'theighta' which is pronounced 'theita' combining both 'theta' and 'eight' and the most shocking thing to me is that 'theta' is the 8th letter in the greek alphabet. so yeah :P

    I always thought this was some kind of graffiti letter and nothing more, because there is so many different styles of letters made by graffiti artist. I'm sure many artist has made this by "themselves" and thought they were the first because it's so simple but still looking so dang good

    What if aliens landed on Earth thousands of years ago and they bore a symbol very similar to this as the icon of their race; and now people draw it subconsciously as tribute to them, without knowing truly what it is for?

    It's just one of those cool line drawing tricks. My dad used to draw shapes, while we watched him draw, simple circles and squiggly lines would transform into a clown or a WW1 pilot with goggles and flappy cheeks. It's kinda cool know that maybe the S came from an old geometry teacher though.

  57. SunnyD

    SunnyDIl y a 7 heures

    Ive never heard of, drawn, or seen the symbol until i was around my teens and had access to the internet. This is probably because i was isolated from other children by home schooling and my parent's religious activities. And then I also happen to be a artist- and Im kind of glad because repetitively drawing a symbol just because its easy is kind of sad to me X")

  58. Dessert Storm

    Dessert StormIl y a 7 heures

    I think this is a very simple explanation. The rounded S symbol is basically a figure 8 drawn in sand or dirt. Try it yourself, where the line crosses in the middle it automatically creates the 3d overlap effect. BEfore people had regular access to paper or vellum, they would draw in the dirt with a stick, and the rounded S symbol is how a figure 8 would appear. I do not claim to know what it represented, but its a symbol that is easy to recognise and can be drawn in one stroke, so I don't doubt that it was commonly used for various groups to mean any number of things.

    @ 7:51 the shape of the end of the fingers and the ratio of the 2nd and 4th fingers length stood out to me. The slightly bulbous tip of the fingers is sometimes correlated with heart problems. The ration of the 2nd and 4th finger length could also correlate with sexual orientation.
