Q: Why do Chinese walk around with two walnuts in their palm?

You'll see them on the subway or wherever: there are two crinkly old walnuts that they are holding in their palm that they spin around in a circle. The walnuts seem to lacquered, and are shiny; they are not "fresh out of the shell".  They're walnuts because they are wrinkly like a tiny brain.

 

Is this some kind of religious thing like how some folks will idly count beads with their thumb? Are walnuts associated with longevity? Is this a hard nut to crack?

It is an exercise to roll two balls in your hand. You can 'easily' break walnut with squeezing your hand with two nuts in it. You can't break single walnut in your palm.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
