I've been trying to pin down some norse runes, but everyone has a different opinion on which one means what. There was one that stood for fluidity and movement, and others for Loki, etc. Will continue looking.

I thought the incorporation of Ouroboros (prolly Syn) into the sacred chao was pretty brilliant.

No one's made a "Chao Tipping" pun in a while, so I thought I'd just give it a puch.

I doodled a somewhat interesting symbol on the binder in which my copy of Principia is kept. The Chao, however, is (for me, at least) the enduring "logo" of the Erisian Movement. It was, after all, displayed to Mal-2 and Lord Omar before the very idea of Discordianism had even crept into their heads, so I guess the sight of it caused this Whole Thing??
