^What does that singn actually mean? Confused

as a hand sign it means "peace", regardless of which way the hand is facing. it was popularised by Winston Churchill who is English. when used with a gesture it can mean something else in a few countries. wikipedia does not make that clear.

haha.. never meant to make it a serious thing.. NEVER! Laughing

it's just that i was quite "shocked" when i saw it... hilariously shocked... Laughing

as Crystallas said, she probably doesn't even know it. lost in translation eh? Tongue

Ai probably didn't think of that when she made that hand gesture

Oh, so you like Liverpool FC, cabal? I like it too! Smile


But, this should not be dwelled on any more, I think.
That accident is in Yokohama Arena *, not in England or any others.

* Place (country) where that gesture is no problem at all.

I don't think it was an incident..
Anyway, here (France), this sign is not an incident or something wrong at all.

Yeah, of course it's not an incident or accident! Pardon my wrong word choice. Laughing

I want to describe that this situation is happened in Japan, where this sign is no problem at all as well. Smile
