picking my noseShow most recent or highest rated first. Common beliefs in this section include:
when i was a 7 i used to think that boggies were little insects that lived in your nose .
When I was younger, we used to travel to the States to go on vacation. My parents told me that I wasn't allowed to pick my nose or the police would take me away and I would have to go back to Canada!! Wow!!
I always thought if you ate your bugars you would get worms.
i used to believe that when u were picking ur nose u were picking out dead bits of brain so thats y my friend told me i was thick cos i wld only have half a brain
I used to believe that if I picked my nose too much, my "black gold" supply would run out and I would become "filthy unrich", anyway, that was a belief my Aunt inserted into me!
when i was a little kid, my brother told me that if you ate your boogers they would turn into worms in your stomach.
In prescool, i had the bad habit of picking my nose and eating my boogers. my teacher told me that boogers were dirt and that's what i was eating. I told her i didn't care, as long as it tasted good.
When my brother was little my dad caught him picking his nose. Dad goes, don't do that, it's bad for you and you'll die. Brother takes his manky finger, licks it and says 'see. not dead!"
Growing up, my older brother told me that eating my boogers would make strong like Popeye. During dinner he would pick his own boogers & trade me. My desert for his "freshly picked" nose gummies. Mmmmmm. To this day I don't eat any kinds deserts. But strangely, I sometimes have cravings for a freshly picked one.
When I was 3 or 4 I used to eat my boogers(gross i know, but I was young so SHUT UP!) and my mom's friend said if I ate them my veins will pop out of my skin and I believed her of course.
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 I was 5 my mom told me to stop picking my nose and ofcourse i didnt listen so she told me that I picked my nose and ate all the boogers I wouldnt be able to breath and die :( pretty harsh but I believed her
i used to believe that mucous running out of my nose was actually soy sauce and i used to just keep on licking it and licking it because hey... i like soy sauce
I used to believe that when you flick bogies on the floor they would just dissapear! Well you couldn't see them!
I have no idea how I came to believe this, but as a child I thought that there was a triangular shaped booger inside your nose and when you accidently picked it, that's what caused nose-bleeds. Gross.
When i was about three, on the wall next to my bed, there was wall-paper with the faces of all kinds of boys and girls on it. I was facinated by this wall-paper and could look at it for hours. I had the strong believe, that if i could give them 'special' eyes, they could look at me too. So i gave them eyes made out of the material you get when you are picking your nose (i don't know the correct word!). It never worked because one day my mother did a spring-cleaning and she whiped all those tiny, dry (eye)balls off the wall. Great was my disappointment and i still hear the ticking sound of the balls on the floor!!
I used to believe whenever I picked my nose My Eye balls would fall out or get bigger
I used to pick my nose and eat it on a daily basis as a kid. I don't know what I saw or heard, but when I was about four years old, I started believing that if you picked your nose for a certain amount of time, your nose would grow three feet overnight, and the problem with that was... you didn't know when it was going to happen! Needless to say, I not only stopped picking my nose, but I'd wake up frequently during the night to see if my nose had grown any longer.
if u pick your it will ether get stuck or you will have big nosetrels
I believed, because I was told by my big brother, that if you picked your nose and ate it, it would all coagulate (I don;t think I knew that word then) into a large ball in your body and you'd then die...
