    I don't mean this in any sort of negative way at all but I have noticed pretty much all of my asian female acquaintances always flash the peach sign in their photos....like every one of them and I am curious as to the reason

    I have not noticed this at all with any of my other friends, at least not to the same extent.

    Anyone know the reason for this? Or is it just a strange observation I have noticed?

    I would guess its the same reason that rich white guys still think its cool to add "izzle" to the end of words...Social quirks.

    Seems to have come from Japan. Theories abound as to why; nobody seems to know for sure. These possibilities are from Wikipedia:

    Would you perfer gangster hand signs, a Borat thumbs up, a hang ten sign, or the middle finger? Agree with the social assessments above.

    There are places in the world a friendly wave is an affront.
