Horror story time!!~~
When i was in second grade i saw this kid in my class pick such a booger out of his nose... it was like epicboogerness. long, green fading to red and like just absolutely disgusting. he reaaches up (he had to to get the long ass thing high enough) tilts his head back and *slurp*. gone. oh my god.

This is why i now have a problem with (most) bodily fluids. seriously i have a freakin traumatic disorder because i watched that kid eat his snot. and now i hope you do too. =)

I have a pretty strong stomach for many nasty things but mucus makes me gag. When somebody blows their nose near me I have to look away and go to my happy place so I don`t start dry-heaving. And please, don`t blow your nose at the dining table!!

The two litres of mucus sounds a little high... And why does it show a picture of what looks like a FOUR litre jug to represent a litre? Misleading to those who still use the imperial system...

Why are people so grossed out by boogers? It`s a defense mechanism produced by your own body. They`re not that gross.

"1 in 20 have tasted semen? That seems a little low."

Low for tasting one`s OWN semen? Seems a little high if anything.

Also, did anyone else throw up a little after reading the bit about the Eskimo mothers?

Well, apparently most of the dirty mucus is swallowed anyway so it seems pointless to eat your boogers. I just stick them under things.

So according to boggers I`m healthy/drink too much milk today anyway.

I read somewhere just yesterday that said eating your own boogers is like taking immune system pills. Each is a little shot of bacteria that your body quickly fights off and so helps boost up your immune system. It kind of makes sense!

I`ve never heard of anyone eating their own earwax... One of my professors used to pick at her ears and then look at it though.
The baby snot thing is gross.

"Hmm, they include specifically scabs but not blood. I`ve sucked my own blood (like when I get a cut and no band-aid around, not in a faggy Edward way)"

OK. I work with mentally challenged adults. ive cleaned up pretty much every bodily fluid there is at some point.

But this actually made me gag and lose my appetite.

"what the hell?! who eats scabs?! ewww"

Chances are good that you know a few people who have.

More importantly, eating your own semen... O_O

It`s eating your OWN semen, not someone else`s. That`s why it`s so low. Delicious and nutritious

Okay, I admit it! Nail fragments are pretty good to chew on after biting off a loose end...but swallowing them?

Also, why isn`t there a statistic for vaginal discharge?

I dunno, is the semen statistic world wide? Because I`m pretty sure Muslims can`t have oral sex at all. So that`s a pretty large amount of the population right there.
