My friend, Hilary asks, "Does anyone have any idea what these
are? They were found, strung together like this, in the pocket of a Japanese soldier's overcoat during WWII. My Mother's friend worked for the Red Cross during the war, and found them, and they eventually came to me. I'm guessing they are coral....but what was their use?"

My question has two parts: I need around a hundred balls that I can paint/write on.
They shouldn't be too heavy, with a diameter from say two inches to the size of a billiard ball.
I need to write on them, or if you can tell me how to print stickers, I'll print stickers.
I've seen mcmaster.com (part number 9941K27) but they're kinda pricey.
So my two questions are:
1. Where can I find such balls?
2. How can I print stickers?

Small whitish soft-hard stinky balls coming out of my throat once in blue moon when I cough hard. They have a foul smell. I can't see them inside my mouth. But they occassionally 'fall out' when I cough. The odour is soooo bad.
At first I thought they were food particles, but no.. this has happened atleast 2-3 times in the past week.
They are not big at all, they're very small.. no particular shape.
What is it, and how do I get rid of them?

BallsFilter: Why is male semen best created and stored at temperatures below normal body temperature? Why keep those delicate ovoids outside the body where they're exposed to a good swift kick? Shouldn't they be tucked deep inside for safety?
