i was introduced to the universal S in elementary school in,
like, 1994. the guy who i would vaguely credit as being the
meme epicentre always drew it was "SMILE." years later, i
found out about leary's "SMI^2LE" thing, smile, but with i
squared for intelligence increase or something. i thought,
"oh, wonder if that's where that came from."

the viral nature of it is actually more interesting to me
than its origin -- or, could even be the origin. it's easy
to draw a lot of things that look like it. the modern style,
it's very satisfying when you're in fifth grade or whatever.
perhaps multiple people "invented" it independently, simply
because it was a natural evolution of neurology and
language.

that was some interesting shit... i think it was around the
same time as you when i first learned how to draw it so i'll
have been about 7 or 8. had no idea it was so, uh,
universal. it was from a sometime football-playing buddy and
classmate called kyle and i think i remember him saying his
brother was the one to show him. define memetic spreading.
it was a minor badge of cool knowing how to draw it, so
quickly spread to pencilcases, bags, folders etc. very
satisfying symbol

Nude lady that you could change in to a dog when the teacher
came. Good times!

Crazy how far back the history of the S goes though, I
wonder if kids still do it now

Unfortunately my Google search of "headless nude woman
turned in to a dog" turned up some macabre stuff so I'll
draw it for you when I get a chance.
