You're right. I was sort of trying to get at that and conceding to the point-- guess I wasn't clear (that's why I said strange and used past-tense). It just SEEMED like it was a huge pop culture fad thing to me and I was admitting that I guess I wasn't aware that it's not in that last post.

It didn't seem like a particular circle of friends thing to me, because I always heard it mentioned from just normal kids who didn't pay attention to stuff like that.

To be honest, I'm still skeptical about the author either way though. That she just stumbled on the same idea innocently.
