    Two bracelets, they are AOS fire orange color, and say

    1) Life Sucks Wear a F**King Helmet (thats what it actually says, with purple background on text)

    2) Not Eating Meat is a Decision, Eating is an Instinct (with Blue background on text)

    What are these? Where did they come from? How many are there?

    Looks like old Pet Binding Bracelets that were changed with HTML. Some runebooks and bracelets were done this way a few years ago. I have heard that you can still do this with some items with the EC but since I am a 2.5d kinda guy I would not know. A couple bracelets like that sold at rares fest for 5 to 15 mil. By the way, the meat eating one is from Denis Leary comedy show. Good stuff!

    HTML text is still possible and always has been. Sometimes people will try to tell you that an item with html text is an old old item from years ago and some cases thats true but in many others its not.

    It could also be an item from a program UO ran years ago where you could basically purchase an in-game party and you would receive an item such as a bracelet with the html inscription of your choice.

    thanks for the further info DVI, though doutful the UO Dev's/GMs/Seers/Counselors would ever let the F word in anyway shape or form into the game knowingly.

    But I am a history buff so thats all good to know :p
