    Default Serious health-related question

    I won't attempt to mask this in an MBTI/scientific veil. Simple question: how many of you can blow your nose properly? I never learned to as a child, and now no matter what I try, or what I do (one nostril, hard; one nostril, soft; both nostrils, hard; both nostrils, soft; tissue in the nose; tissue outside the nose; over a sink; building up a sneeze; just generally poking around in there and examining the results) I can always feel more just waiting to come out. 5 seconds later I sound like I'm blowing bubbles in a glass of Coke. The only thing that works is my morning shower, but being an inherently home-based activity this solution doesn't work too well for the rest of the day.

    Darwin seems to have gifted me a decent immune system so I don't get colds often, but when I do...argh!

    On a seperate, but related note, does anyone else find that only one nostril causes them problems when they've got a cold/are otherwise ill. Always the left, always the left...

    I've no idea why I'm asking these deep questions, but humour me.

    I never learned to blow my nose properly either. It just gives me a headache trying.

    that's normal, it has to do which side you lay on more.
