    Now think about it. Its perfectly acceptable to clean wax out of your ears, floss your teeth, or get the crust out of your eyes. Why, then, is it sooo disgusting to pick your nose? I mean as long as you properly dispose of the boogarige. Then if you have visible boogars, thats nasty too? to pick or not to pick?

    Either way, your damned if you do, damned if you don't

    The irony is that it is good hygiene to pick. Sometimes blowing is just not gonna get it.

    You could always use a tissue to pick...

    that still involves sticking a finger up your nose... its just covered in a tissue...


    I have nothing against picking or blowing your nose except when you do it around me. I find that gross. I make the effort not to do it around other people so please, don't do it around me.

    This is an issue that has gotten much too much attention of late.

    The weird thing is I have no qualms about picking my nose in public, but I don't like other people seeing me do it.
