Thunder โšก Lightning bolt symbol

Lightning bolt symbol, aka thunderbolt text emoticon is used to convey things that may be shocking either electrically, or in a metaphorical sense. Lightning emoticon is even used to convey "lightning fast speed", as in Google Amp project that has a โšก lightning bolt as it's symbol. It's hard to say how to correctly write ACโšกDC band as text without a lightning symbol. Apperently the usual correct way is AC/DC but, of course, a lot of people text it as "ACDC", or "AC DC" as a result. In ACโšกDC the โšก lighting bolt sign probably stands for the loud sound of lightning thunder clap. They even have a song called "Thunderstruck" with a memorable chant "Thunder".

Skull symbol, or skull and crossbones symbol communicates the dead seriousness of something we should definitely take notice of if we want to stay alive and in good health. In "real life" it's often placed as a "don't swallow" sign on toxic chemical substances, poison and doors that should not be entered. You may even have a couple of items in your home that have a skull and crossbones symbol icon inscribed on them for you to take special notice. In text, however, skull symbol is often used even just because it's kind of a cool symbol.
