It's weird ... A few days ago, I decided to try stuffing cottonballs up my nostrils instead of using noseclips. I find the pinching of noseclips uncomfortable, and I thought that cottonballs would block the nostrils better as they provide a seal over a larger surface area. Stuffing a cottonball up my nostril is something I've been doing for donkey's years if I've had the inconvenience of a bleeding nose. Otherwise, lying flat on my back waiting for it to clot up is so
The next day, while searching the board for something quite unrelated, I noticed mention of "nosestuffing" in one of the search results. On investigation, I was quite amused to find that the idea -- not to mention the term "nasal tampon" -- had already come up here. It just goes to show that great minds think alike, I suppose -- like when Isaac Newton and Gottfried Leibniz independently came up with the ideas that led to the development of calculus. With all due respect, though, I would say that the idea of stuffing cottonballs up your nose is a little less great an idea than calculus.
How do you pick a bank robber doing SLD? He's the one wearing a balaclava to hold the handkerchief up against his nose.
