Basic Emoticons

There are emoticons for all kinds of feelings and other situations.  It occurred to me that, as people spend more time communicating through text media, part of what's driving the emoticon boom is a need to express at least the basic emotions.  So that got me wondering if there are, in fact, emoticons for all of those.  Learn them and you have the primary colors of the human heart.

1) Anger
>:(   
>_<

2) Fear

<8-O

3) Disgust

4) Contempt

0_o

5) Joy

6) Sadness

7) Surprise
:O
