    ooh! lol

    The ± means "more or less". I think it's a mathematical symbol.

    The other one is some kind of punctuation symbol. Not sure what it means, though.

    Sometimes I do... sometimes it just makes me sad because there's no point any more!

    Like when you're on your fourth generation, and they have so much money - I have to kill them all and start again.

    I kill them all anyways. I have a "family" where theres a stove in the middle of a large lot. i make them burn something, they catch on fire, then eventually the rest of the members catch on fire. Once they all die i line up their graves, then the next family comes....

    I know, im evil. rawrr!!

    The second is a 'section' sign (eg. see Section XX of the document). See http://www.answers.com/%C2%A7

    The first is a "plus or minus" sign, used mainly in mathematics.
