Emoticon!

Postby Reductor » Sun Jul 18, 2010 6:53 am

Hey, you know what this joint needs? More emoticons! There are just not enough to capture the many moods of the Reductor. :tongue: I cannot think of an example just now, but the thought has occurred to me on occasion.

This forum has some good ones that I haven't seen elsewhere.

I wish there was an emoticon for saying something went "over my head". I've never seen one like that anywhere.

Also, on another forum I go to, they have a "head-smack" emoticon for those "d'oh!" occasions.

I'd like Kling-on and Spock emotocons!

What about an asura-emotocon too?

OO and a naga - this forum definately needs a naga emotocon ...

Happy Friday from Mt. Meru,

I'm your friendly, neighbourhood Asura

Ah, I didn't know this.

I only know naga (in the context of the Dhamma) from a passage in the Vinaya that says that naga's can't ordain.

Nagas are particularly revered along the Mekong river on the Thailand-Laos border...

My local Wat is a branch of Wat Nak Prok, Bangkok:

The Buddha-Rupa I have at home is based on that Naga story and looks something like this (but less ornate...):
