That Mysterious “S” Thing We Used to Draw (by the1janitor)

We used to draw this as kids and it’s always confused me. It still really bothers me tbh.

This is really creepy tbh.

yeah we used to draw these! around 2002. at the time i was told it was like the slipknot logo but now i know it’s totally not. but we did used to get in trouble for drawing them.

we never got in trouble with them. I had them all over my school planner lol. 

(We did call them ‘super S’) 

There’s this awesome book I read called ‘The People in the Playground’ which concerns the observations of an anthropologist on children’s folklore: the stuff that kids independently teach one another in school yards and playgrounds that has no real connection to adult lore and media. This is a great example of it, as are hand clapping and jump rope verses.


If you can finish the lines “Miss Mary Mack Mack Mack all dressed in black black black…” or ‘Hinky Pinky Ponky, Daddy had a donkey…”or “Miss Suzy had a steamboat…” or “Engine Engine number nine…”

stop and think about where you learned them.


It probably wasn’t from an adult or out of a book or in any formal way. It was from another kid; someone a grade ahead of you or someone’s older sibling or something. Who learned it the same way.

This is CHILD lore. Sometimes a fad will come and go in a single age cohort, sometimes it’ll last for generations. It’s kind of awesome.

The idea of child lore and a distinct child culture is really interesting, especially when you consider that children have a few traditions that go back hundreds of years.

For example: did you ever play “Quaker’s meeting?” Quaker’s meeting has begun, no more laughter, no more fun…that dates back two centuries

And of course there’s “Ring around the rosie,” which goes all the way back to the time of the black plague.

Children pass these things down among themselves as part of a legacy they lack the context to fully understand; but you could say the same thing about most adult traditions. That unbroken chain of shared knowledge connects their play to the play of children from hundreds of years ago, without any adult input or encouragement.

That’s cool.

PSA: Hiatus

I will be taking a hiatus. I’ll be gone until at least next Tuesday, but if I feel the need I’ll make it longer. It could last so much as up to Christmas break. I’ll let you guys know if I extend it. I just really need to focus on myself. I need to take time away from certain influences and reminders so that I can work on me. So yea I’m sorry you guys please don’t unfollow me, I’ll still occasionally check messages to make sure everyones alright. If in absolute need of me (Remember I’m always here to be for you all)

My Skype: blehh-its-devynn

Again sorry guys I love you all.

It’s so funny how whenever you were upset and try to walk away I always ran after you. But you never did the same for me. And it’s so funny how I’m made out to be the devil when you purposely found things wrong with us. To get me to break up with you. And it’s so fucking funny how I have spent these passed three or four weeks, slaving away to prove something to you. To show you things could be better. And now I feel so low. I keep thinking what is it that I didn’t do? Was it because of the stupid dance? Because last time I checked you danced with someone else too. I tried so hard and none of it mattered. I shouldn’t have ever tried to get things back to where they were. I knew the second you entered that nurses office I should’ve stayed away. I should’ve known that every thing that came from your mouth was full of false hopes. At least I know better now.

Can we all agree that Avatar had one of the worst movie adaptations of all time.

Like where did these fucking blue people come from.  Why are they in space.  There’s not even any fucking bending.
