Noticed a few guys have one long fingernail. one works at the post office, the other at a local gas station. one was a white guy, one was black so the "chinese people do it" is out the door. I have seen others around with the same thing.

Fingernail is about an inch long on one finger (can't remember which one).

realized it when they were giving me change. gross as hell.

This apparently "means" something, so what is it?


nose picker? dope holder? what?

If they're only slightly long, and it's the thumb, it could be used for playing acoustic guitar.

Probably coke nail though.

Booger picker.

Work with a metric shit ton of Mexicans. They all have one and that is what they use it for.

Gross as shit. No big deal to pick their nose and closely examine whatever they find on the tip of that nail.

Certain electrical and manufacturing people do this, for picking wires or strings etc. quickly out of bundles.

I know a few telecom guys who do that, we make jokes about the "coke spoon" too, but damn they're fast when you watch them sort through a rack of equipment and then go sort wire pairs for a punch-down etc.

Lots of assumption fail in this thread.

I have a longer right pinky nail. In addition to guitar, I also play sitar. This requires that sometimes one uses this nail to strum the sympathetic strings which reside under the main strings.

Not everyone is a "doper",.but leave it the worldly occupants of GD to assume the worst....

It's a coke nail. Last time I checked, people generally don't play the guitar with their goddamn pinky- unless they're all closet Sitar players It's a fucking coke nail regardless or not you do coke with it. Some do it as a fashion statement, doesn't stop it being a coke nail.

A friend of mine owns a jewelry store. He has one long pinky nail, and I've asked him about it. He says it is for when he is counting inventory, gold chains and such. Sounded reasonable, but it still looks a bit creepy. I don't think he is a coke-head......but you never know for sure.

Google "Ravi Shankar" videos. Watch and listen. All of your questions will be answered and you will find inner peace, or transcendental happy thoughts, or something. Personally, I found that I didn't much care for sitar music myself but hey, who knows, right?

Also, the nail thing, well....just ask Dr. Rockso!!!
