This one is very common, we get a lot of common ones on here a lot, but this one hasn't seen the light of day yet?

The Half Life logo is a Lambda symbol, which looks a lot like a arm holding a crowbar.

It's a lower case Lambda.

"Lambda indicates the radioactivity decay constant in nuclear physics and radioactivity. This constant is very simply related (by a multiplicative constant) to the half-life of any radioactive material."

Yeah, I couldn't think of the actual word for it. But yeah, it's the Lambda symbol. I can see how people would say it's a hand and a crowbar.

....Maybe I should have posted this with it and said that they're similar.

So are we having like sited common/unknown trivia now, nothing like this?

It also resembles a man surfing on a stepladder.

Maybe one of the devs thought that the lambda looked like an arm holding a crowbar and decided to put it in as an obscure reference.
