Welcome to Emoticon Zendo Game 82

This game is over; Jpwoo correctly discovered that a koan has the Buddha nature if
Spoiler (click to reveal)
all soblue emoticons have a regular smiley in some position both before and after them.


Thanks to iorlas for a fun game 81!

To see a list of all the games, click here.
See also the Emoticon Zendo Wiki.
Consider the Spock rule.

Emoticon Zendo Rules:
-All BGG users start with exactly one guessing token.
-There is no "Mondo" -- there is only "Master" and guessing
-There are no turns, but no one user may do "master" (asking about a koan) two consecutive times (i.e. he must wait for another player to do "master" in between). A user may "guess" the rule twice consecutively only if there was a "master" from another user, and at least an hour has passed since the first guess. A user may do a "master" and then make a guess consecutively.
-Your first guess is free. Additional guesses cost 1 GeekGold. The GG should be submitted as a tip to this thread. The student with the first correct guess (the winner) will win all the GG as a prize.
-Please thumb the main thread if you participate.
-Buddha is not spelled "Buddah"...

Emoticon Zendo Conventions:
-Koans are built from a single line of emoticons. No letters/numbers/etc.
-The 2nd emoticon from the left is in 'position #2', etc.
-I will use thumbsup and thumbsdown to answer each "master", so please don't use these emoticons in your Koan.

Here is an example of a Koan of length 4 which has a smiley face in position #3:

Koans with the Buddha nature:
happy (starting koan)
ANGRYangry

happy
devilgulpzombierobotninjagoo
AsobluesoblueZ (counterexample)
sobluesoblue
soblue
sobluesobluesobluesobluesobluesobluesoblue
sobluesoblue

Koans without such nature:
sadsoblue (starting koan)
ADsoblue
soblue
sobluesoblue
sobluesoblue
sobluesoblue
soblue (counterexample)
sobluegulp

Guesses so far:
Jpwoo:

A koan is of the Buddah nature if it does not contain a soblue emoticon.


iorlas:
Spoiler (click to reveal)
any soblue emoticon in the koan has a smiley emoticon after it in the koan.

Master,

happy

(Also I'm not one to question the master, but you've introduced the game as game 81, instead of 82 )

Thanks; cut-and-paste does not have the Buddha nature, it seems.

Obvious and probably wrong, but here we go,

Master,

A koan is of the Buddah nature if it does not contain a soblue emoticon.

Alas, the following koan with the Buddha nature disproves your proposal, my student.
