Default Selector switch marking ideas

Ok so I'm doing my first build from an 80% lower and have already milled out the fire grouping pocket. Next I'll be getting it anodized, then engraved and assembled in time. I'm interested in ideas for custom selector switch engravings. Words, symbols, whatever. I've searched for threads regarding this and have only found a very few lowers with custom selector switch markings. Thoughts?

Got some good ones here so far, not thinking I want the current "leader" of the country on my rifle in any form. "pew" makes me smile...

"mechanical" (safety)
"user" (semi)

to denote what is keeping it "safe".

The no pew, pew, pew pew pew is my absolute favorite (besides the original).

If I do a "screw around/fun plinker" the auto switch might say Raining Blood.

"You're safe, I'm safe, no one's safe is my favorite so far. These are all good. The Chinese characters are cool too, translation?
