When you're blowing your nose, you should not use one of your own paper tissues.
Instead, grab a nearby sleeve, preferably belonging to someone else, and blow hard. Then say a very healthy thank you with a smile and proclaim that that person has helped in building a better future for mankind by having a wet sleeve.
Also, if possible, try to have a hiccup fit in front of the person and then run away.
That is all.
Yep, more words here.
This is overtext. Man, what an awesome use of 100 geekgold! :)
Wisdom to live by.
...and blow hard.
No, no, no!
"Coughing and sneezing generated little if any pressure in the nasal cavities. But nose blowing generated enormous pressure, equivalent to a person’s diastolic blood pressure reading, Dr. Hendley said and propelled mucus into the sinuses every time. Dr. Hendley said it was unclear whether this was harmful, but added that during sickness it could shoot viruses or bacteria into the sinuses, and possibly cause further infection.
The proper method is to blow one nostril at a time and to take decongestants, said Dr. Anil Kumar Lalwani, chairman of the department of otolaryngology at the New York University Langone Medical Center. This prevents a buildup of excess pressure."
