Note to self: don't pick your nose while driving. but that really does suck OP, hope you feel better!
When I did extensions it was to add color. My hair is dark and can be expensive and time consuming to highlight. Hair extensions can be a less expensive alternative if you can do them at home. Not to mention if you go with an odd color like I did, easy to remove if needed for interviews or other things.
67 - I read a study that found around 40% of the population picks their noses and then eats what they find up there. The people who ate their boogers got sick less frequently and with less severity than those who didn't. The vast majority of your mucus winds up at the back of your mouth and in your throat, anyway, do why does it matter if it gets their intentionally or naturally?
89 - Actually, that's not entirely true. Us humans are built for our environment. Just like camels. Camels have 2 (maybe 3 can't remember) layers of eyelashes. This is so all the dirt and other crap from the desert doesn't get in their eyes. People have hairs in their nose for a reason. The hair in your nose stop things like dirt and any other harmful substances that try to fly their way up there, and when we pick our nose (and eat whatever you get) you are quite possibly eating a harmful substance which may harm you. And yes you get mucus to, which is just disgusting.
134 - No, I like to read. I see something interesting, I read it. 136 - I think the medical school that did the research knows quite a bit more than you. Yes, the hairs prevents some of the dirt and yuck from being ingested, but the vast majority of it still winds up in your throat. That slimy feeling you probably have at the back of your mouth at any given time? That's snot running down your throat from your nose.
I'm sorry 142, but that doesn't mean that eating your boogers boosts your immune system. Your general mucus is fine, considering your throat, eyes, and back of the nose is always soaked in the stuff; but the boogers in your nose are condensed shit from the air around you with some of your mucus in it, since it's there to collect the shit there off your hairs in the first place. If you eat your boogers, you're eating the dirt, skin cells (and other cells like bacteria. fungal spores, etc.) and fibers floating around in the air. Do you really think that's healthy?
143 - well you must be very unintelligent if you believe anything you read. If your own common sense doesnt even tell you that eating your own snot is healthy, you must not be very smart in the first place. And last time I asked my doctor they were on my side. 171 - yes that is very true
