It seems that most suveys out there show that 99.9% of people pick their nose, for those of you who would like to know more, read on – for the rest of you scale down your window and pretend to be doing something else even though you are still reading (oh yes, I can see you)
How to Pick Your Nose Inconspicuously
If you think your activity has been detected, immediately suspend mining operations and begin to scratch your nose. This will usually convince even the nosiest (no pun intended) observer that you were merely dealing with an itch, which is not forbidden.
If the flicking maneuver cannot be performed, stay calm and don’t panic

And eating the dry remains of what you pull out is a great way of strengthening the body’s immune system.
Nose-picking may carry a number of medical risks, thus most doctors recommend against it and encourage the use of a tissue instead. Risks include nasal infections, occasional nosebleeds (in 25% of those who pick their nose) and in rare cases perforation of the nasal septum (self-induced ethmoidectomy).
“Pick” your side! 😛
