Today, at my sister's wedding, I got my 15 month old son to 'sign' the big guest book. I gave him a pen and was hoping for a cute little squiggle or something. But no, he managed to draw something that looked uncannily like a big swastika. FML

Oh boy! Let's hope he doesn't know what that is yet and that it was a coincidence

Oh, I don't know ; a 15-month-old "signing" the guest book is the kind of thing that I could see some people -- perhaps also the bride and groom? -- thinking absolutely adorable. And even for a big "swastika", it probably wouldn't be that hard to add a few more babyish lines to make it look a lot more random (no need to scribble it out entirely).

Depends which way the swastika was spinning. Opposite of how the Nazis used it, the swastika resembles peace and love. Or so I've heard from a few spiritual people.

You're right #41, that symbol can be found in a lot of religious art from Hinduism and Buddhism. The singer M.I.A. wore a bindi once with the correct orientation of it, but a lot of people got angry at her for it because they didn't know the original meaning of the symbol.
