Nose-Picking

A popular saying in many English-speaking countries is, "You can pick your friends, and you can pick your nose, but you can't pick your friend's nose".

Nose-picking is an extremely common habit, with some surveys indicating that it is almost universal, with people picking their nose an average of about four times a day. A 1995 study into nose picking, requesting information from 1,000 randomly selected adults, gathered 254 respondents. It defined nose-picking as "the insertion of a finger (or other object) into the nose with the intention of removing dried nasal secretions". Of those who responded, 91% said they were current nose pickers (but only 75% of these believed everyone did it) and two people claimed to spend between fifteen to thirty minutes and one to two hours a day picking their nose.



Mucous membranes in the nasal cavity constantly produce a wet mucus that removes dust and pathogens from the air flowing through the cavity. For the most part, the cilia that also line the cavity work to move the mucus toward the throat where it can be swallowed. However, not all the mucus stays fluid enough to be moved by the cilia. The closer the mucus is to the nostril opening, the more moisture it loses to the outside air, and the more likely it is to dry out and become stuck. Once dried, the mucus typically causes a sensation of irritation that leads to the compulsion to dislodge the itch by picking. Other reasons to remove excess dried mucus include impaired breathing through the nose and a concern that it may be visible to others in the nostril openings.

In many cultures [which?] nose-picking is considered a private act akin to defecation, urination, flatulence, and belching. Mucophagy, the act of eating the extracted mucus, may be considered more taboo, and is sometimes portrayed in comedies. To be caught nose-picking may be considered humiliating.

So, do you pick your nose? Or do you consider it excavating?

Simply use a tissue to remove the blockage and it's not as disgusting as it can be imagined.
...it could be worse...and I'm not going there...but I think you know what I mean.
Tissue up.

Sometimes a tissue can't get the job done. Nothing wrong with using your finger to remove some nose crust, but only a nasty motherfucker does it right in front of people.

Ah just started to post and came across your nose picking thread God of War

Nose picking is a nasty habit and l hate it when a person flicks there snot or puts it on the side of a chair or table

Another thing is if you pick your nose to much you can have a nose bleed too God of war

Also if you have a stubborn snot caught in ones nose it can cause a ticlke and sneeze

Yeah. It's funny what one remembers from school. I got that line off someone many years ago.
I got another one for you, Rusty. Nothing to do with nose-picking though. But I've retained it.
