    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.

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

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

    More importantly, eating your own semen... O_O

    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!

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

    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?

    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!!

    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. =)
