I saw somewhere where someone was using reverse smilies, like this:  (:
-instead of this:  :)
Later on, someone told me yes it's a real smilie emoticon but only Unix users use it.

I think it also makes great counter-culture. (:
And I'm finding a lot of web sites & apps that automatically transform the colon + right parenthesis into a yellow emoticon, which don't know what to do with (: and leave it in its original form, which is kind of cool (to me).

A search for (: at both DuckDuckGo and Google turns up 'no results'.
This means I've learned how to 'drop out' with a smile. (:

Heh I also purposely add a space which also stays put, so I can toggle if I wanna go all-yellow or not.
