Long cocaine fingernails on men... ??? The Finale'

Long cocaine fingernails on men... ??? The Finale'

Postby DesertSpider » Sat Sep 15, 2007 1:07 pm

So.... here we go beating a dead horse again.

I'd like to ask a simple, yet probably hashed-over, question that has surely been through the gamut of the boards before....


WHY do men grow a half-inch fingernail on their pinky ?





After traveling greater China and listening to people all over, both locals and expats, the opinions differ. BUT, from the pieces what I can gather is that the long fingernail is supposed to represent financial affluence {i.e. you don't do manual labor / work with your hands}. IF that is true... then why do you see taxi drivers and bellhops sporting long fingernails when it is blatantly obvious that they don't earn shiat....

I equate it to people back in the U.S. that drove luxury cars, but lived in apartments or with their parents. Broke as a joke and everyone knows, but trying to look like they had a $1M USD....



Thoughts ?

It's nothing short of pure shock and awe the number of things done here that produce the exact opposite affect from the original intention or desire....

Just astounding.

If you shat cocaine life would most definitely NOT be wonderful.

Cocaine can dissolve flesh where there is mucous or some other human liquid in contact with the skin. If you shat cocaine you would also **** your entire anus and intestines out after a very short period of time.

Also, the cocaine would be unusable for human consumption unless you put it in a microwave with some baking powder to make crack out of it.

Don't be ridiculous.

Diamonds can cut glass and would shred your anus to pieces the first time you had a dump.

gold is a noble metal and is very malable, it really is the best choice of you're going to shait something from the periodic table of elements.

Yeah... maybe Coffee's got a point here. Although shatting $100 USD bills would be pretty cool too.... harder to clean than gold though.

Wet $100 dollar bills would be easy to shiit out.

Much better than all this cocaine, gold and diamonds crap.

And we could wash the bills in a washing machine, get some local bird to iron them out and HEY PRESTO! The weekend starts here....

but one would still have to go to the bank and exchange them for RMB, better to go to the bank and shait on the counter. That's how they treat me at the bank, so fair is fair.

NOT EXAGGERATING, the cab driver I got into yesterday had 2 inch nails on both pinky and thumbs on both hands.

So weird to me... it didn't look comfortable [or practical for that matter] at all.

I think more like a social status than financial affluence - the long pinky nail means you are not a farmer or you do not need to do get your hands dirty at work or be under the sun all day (eg. farming with long nails is painful). You can make a living without needing to do that and you can work in comfort (taxi driver, bell hops etc).

I might be wrong but I think long pinky nails used to be a symbol of power/wealth back in the ancient times - not sure which ethnicity this originated but I think people who holds a position of authority (like mayor, judge etc) have long pinky nails...but I could've also made that up :p

Yeah.... b/c taxi driver is moving so far up the food chain. :roll:

[disclaimer: not directed at you personally]

Give me a break, if that is true that's the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard. Look at my pimp nails, I've got status b/c I'm a taxi driver. I'd be more impressed with someone with short nails and a new BMW 7 series.

Haha! I know it is an odd concept, just one of those things that is probably unique to the China. We gotta remember that China was "run" by labor workers at one point so I don't know if this a sign that those days are gone so it sort of make sense. They are afraid to go back to those days. This is probably their social hierarchy now. Yes we have the rich people that knows how to pamper themselves and keep themselves clean (aka no scary long nails) but if we go deep into the west I think it's either you're a farmer or you're not. But I may be wrong.

Btw, no offense taken :)
