    I found this t shirt while browsing revzilla and it made me stop and stare at it for a second. Then it hit me. It looks extremely similar to the Schutzstaffel SS symbol. I assume it's unintentional and coincidental, but this got past someone at ride 100. It's actually on their website as well.

    Looking at it more, it's supposed to be the 100% logo. The "SS" are supposed to be sharp 0s and now that I see it, I understand the shirt design.

    Definitely does look like the SS symbol. Could be coincidental, but there is also a recent trend in marketing toward generating interest in this way: knowingly make/say/do something that could be perceived as having a certain meaning, allow controversy to stir interest, get free publicity from people bickering about it. I predict this thread will go down exactly that path.

    It's a real bummer when the worst characters and organizations take on symbols that were kinda cool looking, ruins them for the remainder of human existence.

    Göndul

    In Norse mythology, Göndul is a valkyrie. Göndul is attested in Heimskringla, Sörla þáttr, and a 14th-century Norwegian charm.

    Today -
    it's just a symbol, lightning, electrical charge, as in 100% energy (like Gatorade or AC/DC).

    Then - for the Nazis, (the upper elite who were occultists) they took from the ancient Nordic symbols and applied them.

    Tomorrow - if a racist is on tv shouting through a bullhorn and wearing a Revzilla shirt, I would assume he or she just likes to wear dirt bike moto tees in the summer time.

    Just to be clear I'm not outraged or trying to get people to go grab their pitchforks. Maybe I was over analyzing the design late last night. Although if I were to pass someone on the street it might make me do a double take.

    It reminds me of those boots a couple years ago that someone saw they left swastika prints from the tread pattern.
