As I was clipping my nails earlier, I started thinking. What is the purpose behind fingernails? I can't think of anything I need them for.

These nouns are often used with a form of "to be" rather than "to have," e.g., "he is pwnage" rather than "he has pwnage". Either is a more emphatic way of expressing the simpler "he pwns,"

Upon a quick search, I found this:

Nails act as a counterforce when the end of the finger touches an object, thereby enhancing the sensitivity of the fingertip, even though there are no nerve endings in the nail itself.

Stops your finger from fraying away to the bone and gives the tip rigidity.

Will some sperms don't make it out of your pee-pee when you fappy-fappy, so they swim all the way up to your fingernails to try to escape...

This is why extremely religious people have extremely short finger nails.

Rip them off, then try going a week without them. By the end of it, you'll be begging for them back. But you have already ripped them off. Bad decision IMO, but hey, it's your life.

What else would you bite whilst suffering from idle finger syndrome


As someone with eczema, I find them very, very handy for clawing away at the backs of my legs, etc

Playing guitar obviously.
I have one hand where my nails are really short and the other long for finger picking. It's a good look.

Somebody was offering £10,000 for those nails and she rejected it, freak.
