Today, due to the dry weather, my nose became dry and began to bleed so I plugged it with toilet paper and went about my business. Forgetting about it, I later went out to smoke a cigarette. Not paying attention, I lit the toilet paper on fire as well. FML

Talk about your blood boiling...

I don't think cauterization works for bloody noses.

If only this was the case in the freezing Canada

That's a good quitting régime. Just stuff paper towels in your nose before every cigarette and you'll quit in no time.

Actually it does but it's usually done by a DR. I don't know maybe OP is one

How could you not feel the toilet paper up your nose?

If it's there for too long you'll forget about it

I was thinking the same thing, how can someone just forget that they have toilet paper in their nose... Is that a normal thing now?

Depending on the size of the wad of toilet paper, you would eventually forget about it being there.

It's actually psychologically wired into some animals that after a certain duration of a stimulus, your body begins to ignore it. This is the same thing as a dog getting used to its collar.

Some people forget where their glasses are while they're wearing them.

But a tampon is not the same thing. If it's properly inserted, you shouldn't be able to feel it inside you except when it's being applied or removed. It's a good thing the OP didn't use a tampon for the nose bleed. Could have been like lighting a bomb fuse.

And your eyes can always see your nose, the brain just ignores it so we don't have to see it.

Whenever I get a bloody nose, I put toilet paper or a tissue in my nose (in my household, we don't keep tissue boxes around the house much, since we can just use toilet paper and save money). It's so much easier than the method that most people use, which is leaning forward and holding their nose shut, usually with a tissue. After a while, you forget it's there and I usually don't even see it much unless I look down, I only can see like a millimeter or a centimeter of it. It's kind of like how people with glasses sometimes forget they have their glasses on because they barely can see it due to how close the frame is to their eyes. I've walked into the shower many times with my glasses on before.

You get used to it after doing it for awhile.

if they could see the tip of the cig to light it, and were able to catch the tissue on fire... they could see the tissue.

I gotta say YDI OP. Only because smoking is always some kind of fire hazard, you should have checked yourself first of just remembered the paper in your nose.

"Smoking is some kind of fire hazard" Are you high? Just about everything we do in life is a hazard. Do you straighten your hair? Better not do that anymore, it's a burn hazard Plug your phone into charge? I don't think you should do that anymore, you might electrocute yourself Smoking is a choice as much as drinking is but no one hates the alcoholics. Stop hating on smokers

@64 I hate alcoholics, so does that mean I can hate on smokers too?

none should hate its unhealthy for both parties and doesn't get anyone anywhere...that being said I really dislike a lot of people

alcoholics and smokers are veeery different. alcohol decreases my ability to drive, care for my daughter, etc. smoking a cigarette does not.

I'm pretty sure the main point he was going at was you use a lighter to smoke. So it's obviously a fire hazard, so you should be aware of flammable things. You don't use a fire to drink or plug anything in. As for straightening your hair, you have to be cautious with that.

Are you high? I said its SOME KIND of fire hazard when he has HIGHLY FLAMMABLE paper in his nose asshole. You do know that cigarettes go in you mouth, which is very close to you nose right?

Also where in the hell did i imply hate towards smokers?

#64 Alcoholics only affect (directly) themselves, disregarding any actions they might do when drunk, whereas the smoke from cigarettes is inhaled by others.

88 - I wouldn't be so sure. I've seen kids get taken away from their parents for cigarette smoking. A friend of mine had hers taken away because she would go outside to smoke and leave her kids with someone else watching them in the home. And that's all it took for them to take them away from her.

lolol it's 2014 and you still care about what others choose to do with their lives lolololol

@134, lololol it's 2014 and people care about what other people do with their lives /when it affects others/, like smoking does. Ruin your lungs on your own time in your own home, don't make anyone else breathe in that nasty crap. Second-hand smoke is dangerous, especially so if you're an asthmatic or have any other condition similar.

88- and dying 30 years early because of smoking doesn't affect your daughter?

@64 there's a reason why people, like me, hate on smokers. Cuz every time someone around me smokes I have to breathe it in.

Calm your *******. Fair enough people hate cigarettes, but hating the people smoking them is a bit uncalled for. Unless you know them personally, you can't judge them because they simply have a "disgusting habit" Obviously, I'm a smoker, as are most of my family and friends, yes it's wrong to smoke in a public place such as a bus stop or the entrance to a shopping centre which is why myself and most other smokers avoid those types of places to have a smoke. Iv met 15+ new people this weekend alone and I can honestly say that out of those people, the smokers were the nicer bunch

I've not noticed that most smokers avoid entrances to places... I usually have to walk through a gauntlet of smoke every time I go into a restaurant or store since they're not allowed to smoke inside in CO anymore...

As long as op is an adult and it's legal there is nothing wrong with smoking. unless you pressure others to do it or smoke near non smokers.

#21 do you realize how bad smoking is!? It can cause so many problems and can kill you. Smoking is really bad and you're really stupid

So can over eating, driving, drinking etc. Maybe step down from your high horse?

#42. smoking serves an important function, population control. I smoke and I also know it's not good for me. all thanks to the efforts of sanctimonious dicks like you. just remember to piss on my grave when you outlive me by thirty years.

#11, Someone had to do it. "Smoking is bad so you deserve everything you get." Grow up, I don't even smoke and I'm sick of hearing this shit. Guess what the human mortality rate is? 100 ******* percent. You know what that means?? You are gonna die no matter how healthy you are. Who cares if you choose to enjoy some lung tar on your way out? Who cares if instead on 100 you only live to 90? Oh I know who cares!!! Meddlesome little pricks who have to try to shit in everyone else's wheaties to feel important.

#60. right on man. the cold logic of math for the point.

#21 Well said, man. #60 You missed the point.

I don't really like smoking. I've never tried it and don't plan to because I don't like the smell. But, if people aren't dicks about my NOT smoking, why should I bother those who do? Not many people deserve to have their nose set ablaze, especially just for being a little fotgetful.

bobbyguy 17

How do I know I'll outlive you? There is so many things that can kill you. Your comment was a little hurtful considering I said one thing and you go head and call me d*ck but ehh it's just a comment from a random person on the internet.

#53 My above comment was meant for you

I hate smokers who smoke around me (like my mother, even when she comes over she nags at me until I go outside with her while she smokes which makes my no smoking in the apartment kind of invalid). What you do with your life is up to you. smoke? good for you, just stay away from me while you have one lit. drink? good for you? just don't pressure it onto me (I hate the taste). drugs? same as alcohol; good for you, I want no part. buy a gun and kill everyone? sure, Ill join you there!

Well atleast the burns will stop the bleeding! :P .....but now youre stuck smelling burnt skin for a while. Fyl

I'd be more concerned about the stench of burning nasal hair. Ew.

Hahahha funny. I was actually rtying to add that, but my time for edits ran out -_-
