picking my noseShow most recent or highest rated first. Common beliefs in this section include:
When I was probably about 4 or 5, my big brother told me that if I stuck my finger too far up my nose, a sharp toothed snail would bite it off. I believed him, so I tried not to stick it too far up when I picked my nose and also warned all my friends in kindergarten about sticking their fingers too far up their nose because of the sharped toothed snails. My older brother also got my little brother to believe the same thing.
when i was young my parents told me that if i ate boogers they turned into worms in my stomach and well...that stopped me for good... i still pick my nose when nobodys looking (ew!) =P
When I was little prob in elementary school i used to snort back my boogers...actually my brother did so as well...anyway, our baby sitter told us that evert time we snorted it back it was going up to our brain and eventually air wouldnt be able to get to the brain anymore
When I was 3 or 4, I was a real tomboy and I usually watched the Disney movies, especially Pinocchio. My parents said if I ate boogers (eww) I would turn into a donkey, and i was horrified. i was cleaner and...er, had a better diet from then on.
that there was a sharp toothed snail inside my nose, waiting to bite my finger off
i used to believe that there were bugs in your nose, my parents told me this in a sad attempt to keep me from picking my nose
if you pick your nose your brains will fall out!
When i was in the 1st grade, i had a habit of eating my boogers.(disgusting, right?) I sat in the very front of the room, and during a spelling test, i just had this craving to pick my nose. I dont know why, i just did. and i "accidentally" dropped my pencil under my desk. And when i went to go bend down to get my pencil, i would pick my boogers and eat them.
I saw the movie BEETLEJUICE, where the main character, namely Beetlejuice, is a disgusting green color; I was only four, and I loved this flick--I must have watched it at least a dozen time the first six months we had it! Well, I told my Mommy that "Beetlejuice was a very disgusting green man..." and she told me it was because he picked his nose alot when he was my age--and ate it! I never did it again, for fear of turning into Beetlejuice or anything even closely resembling that color!!! I still laugh with my mom, as she was never one to make up stuff like that, but in this case it was not only hilarious but it worked! :)
When I was little, I had this big headboard on the back of my bed. It was a heirloom upholstered one, made of blue velvet. I would pick my nose at night while falling asleep and rub the boogers on the headboard. Because I was doing this in the dark, I assumed no one would ever know. My mother cleaned the headboard so many times and scolded me, and yet I still continued, absolutely convinced that because it was dark when I continued, she would never find out this time.
When I was a little girl my Mother told me that there were little black bugs in my boogers and that if I ate them they would fly out of my mouth
when i was younger like4 i use to eat my boogers

my grandpa told me if you pick your nose too far then a snail will bite your finger off ha
When I was about 5, my sister told me that boogers were brain cells and that every time you picked your nose or sneezed, you got stupider. I refused to blow my nose in the winter and pinched my nose everytime I sneezed. Thanks for the ear infections Marie.
For years I thought tinted windows on cars made it so you couldn't see inside AT ALL. I had a nasty habit of picking my nose and my family made fun of me a lot..so when I had to do it in the car, I would "hide" what I was doing by getting right up next to the window.
I used to hate blowing my nose, so in order to get me to do it, my mom told me that my boogers were alive and screaming to get out. That explained the whistle sound my nose had when it was stuffed.
my parents informed me if i stick my fingers in my nose my nostrils will stretch, the same applied when pulling faces..if you pull an ugly face your face WILL stay like that.
when my sister was little, she went through a nose-picking phase. my parents solved this by telling her that a finger-eating snail lived in her nose and that if she picked it, the snail would bite off her finger. terrified, she believed it and stopped picking her nose.
i used to believe that boogers were bits of your brain and if your nose bled that meant you picked 2 much.
