    My friend asked me to help her find out what this means:

    Apparently it was written on the backs of some spoons and forks she has.

    lmfao... I hope this is a troll topic. If not, I take back the "lmfao" and would recommend your friend see a doctor...

    Are you serious?

    I would too, but she doesn't believe anyone in this topic is serious. Not even me.

    I completely made that up. The only thing I recognized were the numbers.

    Hell.
    It looks like either Japanese or Chinese, but it's hard to make out the radicals so I can't really check. Well, one looks close to the radical for "tree," but I checked what else it went into and the closest thing to the first character was "apricot." I'm assuming it is not apricot.

    Hell.
    Korean was my first guess, but I couldn't find anything that looks like those symbols when I checked the Korean alphabet. I noticed a couple radicals, though, so I assumed Chinese/Japanese after that.

    She says her camera can't take any discernable pictures of it because it's so tiny.

    I wasn't the one who wrote all that.

    If they don't have a camera with a macro setting than there's a good chance they would have lead eating utensils...

    Why would that be? If it was a lead percentage thingy, wouldn't there be an actual % symbol?
