Welcome to Emoticon Zendo Game 109

This game of Zendo is over! Congratulations to asutbone for finding enlightenment! The correct rule was :

Spoiler (click to reveal)
A koan has the Buddha nature if it contains at least five emoticons and at least one of those emoticons has the letter G on it.


Thanks to Purple for game 108!

To see a list of all the games, click here.

See also the Emoticon Zendo Wiki. (Everyone is encouraged to keep the wiki page up to date, especially those who master or win a game.)!

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:

The worker building up a taj monument with all those bricks does a fine work, but the Buddha's nature cannot be found in his work.

The Buddha's nature is not fond of nuclear energy though.

The Buddha's nature is both everything and nothing. But in our case it seems to be having a physical form of some sort.
