"You don't really think about it, but our brains are really just above our noses all of the time," says Barrow Neurological Institute neurosurgeon Peter Nakaji.

Thank you Mr Brain Surgeon.

basemetal: That would imply that I had a brain......


years ago in Kuwait we were marking UXO for later removal when something blew, one second I was standing the next I was face down with ringing ears and a throbbing in the back of my skull, the doc ran over and checked me out (I took shrapnel to the back of my head, a bump and a couple stitches luckily), as he was helping me up the Lt ran up asking how I was when he was told what happened he sighed and said "thank god, if it had hit ya anywhere else ya might have been hurt."

/Lt doesn't get Christmas cards from me

Out of curiosity, any residual from that concussion?  I know some guys that  were over there that had a few close explosions, now the trouble with concentration, memory, stuff like that.


Well he does pay for Fark so we can rule out sanity

Awww hell I just wiki'd that and apparently people with Ehler's Danlos syndrome are at higher risk for it. Well it would explain my nose randomly dripping clear liquid.

I was teaching a guy I worked with how to snowboard once back in college. He got out of control and wouldn't wreck himself, but he was hauling ass so I couldn't catch up and knock him over. There was a single tree in the middle of a pretty wide run and he was making a beeline right for it, still hauling ass. I was helplessly watching for what seemed like a full minute as it all unfolded in front of me.

So he nailed the tree and crumpled into a pile below it. I thought he was dead for a second, so I was really freaking out at this point. After a minute though, he rolled over and started blowing these huge neongreensnot-rockets. He wasn't feeling like snowboarding anymore after that, so I grabbed his board and said I was going to go find the ski patrol to come pick his broken ass up. He said he didn't need it and started walking down the hill to the lodge.I then took him home so his girlfriend could take him to the hospital to get checked out. It turned out that he had broken his back and the snot-rockets were actually spinal fluid. It was pretty farked up.

fusillade762: GSB time:

I had a really leaky left eye for a while. Eventually my left nostril became semi-clogged and I started getting headaches from the pressure. After about a week of gobbling Advil I took a hot shower and left the water run over my face for a while. Then I laid down and put in some eye drops. Shortly after I blew my nose and there was this *POP*! I look in the tissue and there's this 2 inch piece of dried mucus that looked like a miniature golf tee. Immediately the pain went away and my eye went back to normal.

Kinda normal.  I had a cold two years back that became a slow drain.  One nostril remained plugged no matter what I did.  Finally, after a lot of medication and several hot showers, I had a good noseblow and the kleenex grabbed the edge of a wad up there.  I had to get another tug in to re-catch it.  Then I tugged.  And tugged.

Ended up with a three inch long semi-clotted snotlog that informed me of the precise contour of my nasal cavity.  And now this delicious little useless tidbit about my nose is up on the internet forever.
