Something deeply cultural and meaningful? :/

Remmy be pimpin' in NZ, yo!

 佛珠,本称念珠,是指以线来贯穿一定数目的珠粒,于念佛或持咒时,用以记数的随身法具。其梵文原语包括四种意义:
  (一)pa^saka-ma^la^,音译“钵塞莫”,意译作“数珠”。 (二)aks!a-ma^la^,音译“阿叉摩罗”,意译作“珠鬘”。
  (三)japa-ma^la^,音译“渣巴摩罗”,意译作“念诵鬘”。
  (四)aks!a-su^tra,音译“阿叉修多罗”,意译作“珠之贯线”。
  而梵语ma^la^是“鬘”的意思。佛珠的起源,通常来讲是由于古印度人有缨珞鬘条缠身的风尚,沿袭至后世,遂逐渐演变成为佛珠。

They're used to stop habitual wankers

you can't wank wearing one of those things, now can you?

wake up the whole fucking world, bruise your wrists

so yeah. If you see someone wearing those, he's a total wanker

I admit to wearing something like that on occasion.

Although mine's a little more like this, with the sky bead:

Maybe I'm a hutongster and don't even realize it. :SS

P.S. I can fap just fine with it, but it's noisy what with all the clacking.

I don't mind the Tibetan-looking ones.

You know, the non-Chinese ones.

Yeah, I bought mine in a Tibetan village in Sichuan.

Along with an animal skin neither I nor anyone I ask can identify.

I'm becoming increasingly convinced it's from a dog.

The beads are Buddhist beads. Only Buddhas wear them. Next time you see a guy wearing them, go up to him, bow, and touch his tummy for good luck.

actually i think its stupid to wear braclates for guys... not sexist

What seriously, you didn't know what they are?
Half the people in Asia wear those fkin things.

I have some, presents from the in-laws.

Right because Tibetan ones must surely be the more spiritual, deep and "real" little wooden balls.

Look at Tibetans!
Look at all the fortune and great luck being so much more spiritual than everyone else has brought them.

The beads must work!!

I'm totally doing this today. Will report with results.

I'm wearing mine today. So far, I scratched the car getting out of the parking garage and my assistant hasn't shown up for work.

i used wear the jade buddha necklace, it look nice, and i also somehow believe it can protect me, even though later i got bored of it and never wear it again

just imagine what could happen later when you go to the bathroom and TAKE THEM OFF TO WASH YOUR HANDNS!!! ~~
:SS

It's a religous charm kinda thing. It's something like wearing a cross necklace. The gender of the wearer does not matter.

Still better than playing with a set of dry nuts!!
