    I was on the street today and some kid gestured to someone else. See pic below. Sorry about the quality, I did it with an iSight. Can someone tell me what it means? Thanks, JohnMC.

    In geek language, it's also the symbol spiderman makes when he shoots a web.

    A lady I know who's involved with the music industry once told me that, in addition to being a generic Rock! gesture, it's also a vodoo curse-type thing. Apparently, she used to tell the musician types who did it off.

    But I'm sure that the individual who you saw doing it was indicating that he thought his friend rocked, or something.

    It means you've been cuckolded. My condolences.

    This 16-year-old needs to shut down FCP, Photoshop, Dreamweaver, the works, and stop being a complete computer geek?

    Is that what you're saying? LOL

    Thanks to you all.

    Extended Thumb, Index and Pinkie I've usually seen/used as I Love You.

    The Rock gesture has the thumb tucked under as does the Longhorn gesture (Hook'em Horns)

    The bullsh*t sign has the thumb extended along the curled in middle and ring fingers and is made with a downward wrist motion.

    Actually, that's the "Floppy the Banjo Clown Hand Puppet". This was explained to me at the "How to be a Megastar 2.0" Concert by Blue Man Group. :)

    Then someone needs to tell Kirk Hammett that he has been doing it wrong for the last 25 years. Or maybe's been saying I love you all along (see pic in post #3).

    I think they're used mostly interchangeably, at least now. I guess at one time they were not?
