Honestly, this is near the top of my list of reasons why I wouldn't want to be a high profile politician: there would be so many pictures of me mining for nose gold in public.

You shouldn't feel bad at all about doing that. In fact, if someone catches, you maintain eye contact while mining.

I had these really religious baptist neighbors when I was a kid and the son, daughter and mom all used to pick their noses and eat it. Maybe the dad did too and I just never saw it. I remember thinking for all their holiness they were too gross to get into heaven. What kind of God would allow it?

Then when you're finished, you smile and hold it up for inspection. If they are too far away, you might have to flick it.

I just had gross neighbors.

I used to have the Bionic Man action figure with built in crystal radio.  I was outside playing their oldest son and he put the little ear bud in his ear.  When he took it out it looked like he wiped his butt with it.

I later ripped the cord out and told him the dog had gotten to it.

Just smelly, sloppy, unclean people.  I'm surprised my folks even let me go over there.  The house was a disaster area.

I have very curvy cochleas (according to my ENT), leading to excessive earwax buildup. Every 4 months or so, I have to get it out of there using softeners (Debrox) and H2O2/water, and what is expelled is... well, let's just say you don't expect that kind of production from the inside of an ear canal.

Anyway, when I did this on Sunday, I got two plugs the size of very large pills or medium-sized lima beans (one from each ear). I recall thinking to myself: "Why would a body do this to itself", but I had NO desire to eat them. *dryheave*

// I can hear it when the plugs detach
// when they finally come out, it sounds like someone unwrapped a towel from my head - upper-register hearing gets WAY better

Sounds like you've been waiting for an excuse to regale everyone with that story. You must be a blast at parties "Uncle Dreidel is going on about his earwax again."

It's good to do that for obvious reasons.

But I've heard it stinks, too.  Gram used to have a friend who stunk if she didn't drive the lady to get that done every so often.

I dated a woman who would comment on the smell of my earwax - but she'd be right up against my ear, so I don't know if we can generalize. I have heard that European-style wax is browner, smellier and clumpier than Eastern-style (grayer, flakier and relatively odorless), though.

No one tells me I stink, before or after the de-waxing - so I either have very polite friends (not likely) or there was something else in play there. The clumps that come out definitely smell strongly of earwax and hydrogen peroxide (which is itself not a pleasant one), but again, I don't know that we can generalize.

No.  And I didn't mean to imply anything there with regard to you specifically.

Plus, Martha was a symphony of personal issues so it's very possible she was stinky for various reasons.

No kidding. I get eating boogers, since they are a bit on the salty side.

But ear wax? That's like eating a crayon from the old box of spares on the back of the classroom.

You DO realize they have videos for that, right?

Was eleven years old and talking with buddies about boogers...

  Don't look at me like that. It's what eleven year old boys do.  Anyway, one of the guys confessed to eating them, saying they taste like vinegar.  His older and quite popular sister apparently was within earshot and before any of us could respond, she blurted out, "No they don't."

It was quite some time before she was one of the cool kids again.

Is that a Jew thing? I have that exact thing, too. Usually I hit the ears weekly with H2O2, and have to be super careful with q-tips because it's stupid easy to impact all that wax.

Earwax is one of the worst tasting things ever.  And yes, I put things in my mouth to see what they taste like, whatever.  But... I would think a politician would have a little more self-awarene-
ahhhh who am I kiddin

Dr Dreidel: // mini-CSB: the first time I had the procedure done, the ENT called in other nurses and PAs just to see the size of what came out of my ear


I used to work a call center drone job where I wore a headset.  I realized that I couldn't hear anything when it was on my right ear. I thought I was losing hearing, until one night when I was scratching at my ear and a lump of wax the size of a pencil eraser fell out.  Had a doctor explain to me that if you ONLY use q-tips to clean, and not some form of irrigation, you just end up packing wax down against the ear drum.
 
2014-05-13 07:19:11 PM
Once upon a time, I had to give a speech.  I did well, and afterwards, my boss-at-the-time offered to take me to the bar and buy me a drink.   I was drinking, she was talking and then she grabbed a bobbypin out of her hair, dig in her ear with it, and then she sucked it clean.

I can still see it.  So horrible.

Let me put it this way. You have a choice, eat a booger or eat ear wax. What's it gonna be?

Had a biology teacher who used to say she loved covering the description of semen in class, because whenever she'd talk about the level of sugars in it, there'd always be somebody who asked "Well, why's it salty, then?" before turning beet red.
