    Hello, I'm preparing my Doctoral dissertation, and need some input from gay men (may I say gay, rather than homosexual?).

    My thesis is that gay men pick their left nostril more often than their right one, as opposed to straight men (aka hetereosexuals), who tend to favor their right nostril.

    For this study I require that you keep a nose-picking journal, in which you record each time you pick your nose, noting which nostril you clean. Also specify it you clean both, but which one you do first.

    Please send your weekly results to http://pickmynose.net/. I appreciate your generous assistance as I pursue my PhD in Nose Picking.

    I know this is a waste of time, but that link does not work. I'm wondering if this is a joke?

    No, I haven't blocked you yet. And yes, it was intended as a parody of these stupid "surveys" and "studies" that we get here on RJ from outsiders, like one just today.

    Poor bisexual guys. Must be painful going for the middle option.

    Equally is not the discriminator, but which SIDE you pick first, left or right nostril.

    But if you're telling me that you pick both nostrils simultaneously, that's not considered in my thesis, completely upsetting my entire study. Can I retrain you to pick your nostrils one at a time, like a normal person?

    well what if you switch it up? i guess it can really just depend on my mood and which side is begging for it more.

    Eating it is not within the range of my study. The focus of a PhD is very narrow & specific; it would be a travesty to cheapen it. We are interested in bilateral discrimination, not consumption.

    Why do some guys have really big nostrils?

















    'Cause they have really big fingers.

    Correct, as my mother always warned me if I picked my nose. "Stop that! You'll make yourself have a gorilla nose if you keep picking it!"

    No, my thesis only applies to gay men. While it's true she's a Queen, that's Queen with a capital "Q" not the other kind of lower case (and class) queen.

    So, if I acknowledge that I am gay, but pick my right nostril, would that make me straight acting? Hmmm...

    /This thread is full of so much win!

    According to my thesis, it would make you terminally confused & conflicted, like a US gay man who votes Republican. I was tempted to suggest an additional correlation between nostril choice and political affiliation, but I felt that was best left to my post-doctoral work.

    What! And you're not having your subjects keep a record of how much time they spend picking?! If I were on your thesis committee, that would be my first question at the defense.

    How did you come up with this thesis? I really do not think that anyone picks their nose with the nostril selection as a deliberate or unintentional choice. Where did you get your statistics for the subject?
