I guess I have to apologize in advance for the context of this question but c'mon! I am sure that at some stage in their lives many people have gone digging for gold and then feasted on the spoils of their victorious excavation trip! Let's see how many people can be absolutely honest here and lay it all open for the world to acknowledge! I just thought I would do something totally different for once and post something gross! lol. As for me? Have I done it?....... Yep!

Ewwww..that's gross!!! Funny though. Hi james! I may pick my nose most of the time but never done that. I am conscious that my nose isn't clean so when I wake up in the morning or before going to bed that's what I do. Sometime, it causes my nose to be infected because I always check if I got lot of gold in my nose. hahaha. But never eaten it. LOL

Hi jstmarfz, it seems I missed your response before so sorry for that! Yeah it's gross but kids will always do whatever it is they do without really thinking about how disgusting it actually is! lol. I pick my nose too on occasion but I have never had an infection? Maybe I'm not digging deep enough for that gold? Thanks for your response.

Hahaha just to make sure that I got all the gold! That leads to bleeding of my nose! Can't stop it! hahaha. Its better to have clean nose than clog nose. lol

C'mon dude that's gross. lol. As for me, I haven't done that..ever. But I did remember when I was a kid, my dad was carrying me and I was picking my nose..he dared me to shoot it in his mouth...and I did. hahaha...he was so disgusted that he immediately put me down and went to the sink. lol

Oh, no question it's gross donsky but what you have just described with the situation with your Dad makes my question sound tame! I don't know WHAT I'd do if that happened to me but I am sure I would be brushing my teeth for at least a few hours straight! lol. Thanks for responding.

When I was little of course. What little kid doesn't pick their nose and then taste it? LOL....it's not that gross. I worked in a pre-school for awhile so maybe that's why it's not that shcoking to me. Also, my boyfriend, as much as I hate it, trys to pick my nose, and that's gross!! I always tell him "You can pick you friends, and you can pick your nose; but you can't pick your friend's nose." :)

Finally! Hat's off to you trudy for standing tall and telling it how it is! lol. I too used to do this when I was a child and my Mother used to get quite upset with me and tell me that my head would cave in if I didn't stop! AS for your BF picking YOUR nose?? Now THAT's gross! haha. Thanks for responding and keep telling your BF the same advice you shared over and over for goodness sake!

I will not admit to having picked and eaten .... I might have to run for public office one day and I can just see the headlines... "Candidate says he picked but didn't eat." What I will say is I appreciate all you pick and eaters. You are a lot better than the "pick and flick" ers... Have you ever seen them. They pick and flick and who knows where it will end up. Go go... "pick and eaters."

Oh I don't know 4magoo, I think many of us would prefer to be a picker and eater rather than a politician! But it does seem you have yourself covered if it ever came up! Thankfully I have never encountered a pick and flicker and I hope to God I never do either! lol. Thanks for responding.

Gold digger! Gold Muncher! I only picked the nose hair James and became the freak. You dug the gold and feasted on it. Care to share if you enjoyed it ? What is it Dessert ? Appetiser ? Health food ? Would you recommend it ?

This behaviour was a childhood quirk alok but compared to nose hair plucking it was a walk in the park from what I can remember! I don't think I tagged this to any particular meal time as a child either and probably saw it more as a ready-made snack! There are many behaviours I had as a child that I wish I had never let go of but I can assure you that this is NOT one of them! lol. Thank you as always for your response.

Maybe the nose hair picking was a walk in the park for me. Sure you do not still once in while indulge in the ready made snacks once a hile on the sly James? Now what would be those childhood behaviours you wish you had never let go?

The childhood innocence and an appreciation for things I take for granted today is what I wish I had of held on to alok! We tend to become somewhat jaded with the world on many levels as we age.

I have no idea why I am even responding to this disgusting discussion but I am! Yes James you have managed to make on of the most disgusting posts I've seen! I have never picked my nose and eaten it but I did go to church with a woman when I was little that did that all the time. I can still remember gagging!

Fantastic! So I may have made a lasting impression here then? I can't complain about that! lol. My posst was tied in with things we did as children more than anything else, so to see a grown woman doing this would make me gag too I think. That is totally disgusting fasttalker! Thanks for responding.

No I haven't & its something that really makes me retch when I see kids do it...(there have been plenty of times I've done a very good 'Joyce Grenfell' on that particular activity!! ) - & I speak as someone who now empties commodes, bedpans and sick bowls on a regular basis!(BTW - I'm not keen on cleaning peoples dentures either)

Goodness me Wizzywig! I think you may have upped the ante with all this talk of bedpans, commodes and sick bowls etc! lol. Kids will be kids I guess and they never really consider the gross factor of what they are doing at all. Thankfully I don't see it all that often so I don't have to be concerned with whether it makes me want to retch or not. If anything though it can be a little amusing when kids stand there so innocently with their finger halfway into their own head via the nostril! Thanks for responding.

Ah, well now, I actually have 2 jobs..... I do 3 days on the hospital ward & then do supply teaching in nursery/reception classes so I get to experience the whole range of gross-ness. (A confused patient peed in the linen room today.....)

PS the couth way to do it is to blow it into a kleenex first. You don't use your fingers, that's just bad manners...

I am sure you wouldn't dawnald! The kleenex approach is definitely the way to go but as you have said' no witnesses can sometimes mean no self-awasreness and anything's possible! Thanks for responding.
