Hey now! Have you ever tried to draw stick figures? Half the time I pretend I'm drawing Nearly-Headless Nick to save myself from ridicule!
Just because the Nazis used an already-existing symbol for Jews does not make the symbol associated with Nazis. Can you people get any sillier? That's like saying the (Christian) cross is a KKK symbol because they would burn them in people's yards.
I'm pretty sure the earth-banishing method is the predominant way in the United States, or at least the western United States. I grew up there, and thats how we learned in public school. I also have seen very very few people do it differently. (Of course, I haven't observed many people draw pentagrams. [lightbulb] Idea for another statistics-based project!)
