Brendhan, where do you come up with this stuff, I am truly amazed.  I think I will leave the snot vacuum to parents who really think it is a good idea, lol.  Have a wonderful day, great life.  Cindi

Oh this is a family site?  Then you won't mind me telling of my family?  I have had 5 babies(my wife really did, but I got a little of the dirty work) and they all had slight problems in that area (other end) and a vacuum would have been useless...digging with a thermometer...'nuf said.  No, wait, that is way too much said.  Sorry.

Well if you made it through that without hitting the back button...they have always had these, but they are blue bulbs with a little end that we called "booger suckers".  Could suck mucus out of the little ones lungs just about if needed...there weren't no happy faces when we had to "aspirate their sinuses".

Yes, I am very aware that this is a family site. You can ask pdmattox what I sent him about Mick Jagger and bees and did not post because this is a family site.

Snot and boogers, are definitley things kids are very familar with. I had no problem with posting this one. Well maybe a small problem because I was laughing so hard.

Sincerely,
Brendhan

I cannot stand snot.  That is one of the grossest things on earth.  Ya, I know, little kids have a hard time to blow their poor little noses.  It's the worst when they don't sniff it up and it bubbles out, eeks!!!  Ever had that experience, too bad then, it is a work and a wonder for sure.  Have a wonderful day, great life, good health.

By the way, I think my husband fixed my computer, was a lot of work, but maybe the gateway timeout has now gone by the wayside.  I am still typing and it seems OK.  Yeah!!!!  Maybe picture day tomorrow.  We'll see.

AHAHAHAHHA, ahhahahahahhahahahahah
they don'0t even need a gum to make bubbles heheheeh


oh dear, such a big fuss about little snot, it's a snot pickin' gadget.

Yeah, we have bubble central over here  shocked  Then they go out into the dust and end up looking like they have mustaches that extend from their lips to their eyes.

Or the worst.... when they have a big snail trail dripping down and out comes the cute little pink tongue AHHHH that is when I want to just vacuum the whole kid up!!!

Many,many years ago I had a nephew that was a boggy picker/eater.  It was just the most disgusting thing in the world.  I tried to convince him that if he kept on eating boogers, his head would cave in.  I think that one day he figured it out, because he doesn't do this any more.  How on earth could someone do that stunt?   

Rick, and right, how on earth can they stand to lick it up?  I have seen the kids do that too!!!!!  Gross, guess they just don't understand what snot is made up of.  If they only knew evil  Have a wonderful day, best of this life, great health.  Cindi

they know very well what it's made of, better than us-at least on the subconcius level. i am almost sure that eating boogers is good for one and i think ome of the scientist have proven this but...we humans think we're better than animals, keeping "disgusting" things out of our way, now...it's all in our heads. just think of saliva, you eat it allll day long and huge ammounts, but would you drink a glass of water in which you spit? and...do you know hoow much snot you actually eat throuout the day? it simply slides down your throat.

(not that i eat boogers, i just look at it from a different perspective)

mici, you are right. snot eating boosts the immune system. 

i can't believe that i am getting into this conversation.....or that someone actually did research on eating snot!

btw....you can google 'eating boogers immune system' and get some good info   tongue

Kathy, you are in, deep, deep into the snot talk.  I cannot believe that snot boosts the immune system, rah, rah, rah.  I am going to google that for surely.  I am not sure that eating snot is any different than speaking about bowel movements!!!  Now that I am sure many studies have been done on that one, it probably boosts the immune system by cleansing!!!! evil  Have a wonderful day guys, great life, don't cha just love it!!!!!  Cindi

a lot of bacteria and bad stuff gets caught in your nose while breathing, so if you eat the content of your nose you receive very small ammounts of this bacteria and viruses. it actually works like vaccine shot, you get too small ammounts to effect your body, but big enough that your body knows its enemies. also i think that snot contains your own antibiotics of some kind, so if you eat it, you recycle them, so the body doesn't waste energy on producing new stuff. it's actually pretty simple and logical.

OK, this thread becoming sick, sick, sick, (but oh so much fun and learning cool stuff, but I will not eat boggies, EVER)!!!!!  Have a wonderful day, great life, Cindi

Speaking of good ole' fashioned snot, I heard about some type of sniffer used to detect contraband at airports and other security areas.  As it turns out, they were able to increase the sensitivity of the thing by incorporating "artificial mucus"



    *   18:01 25 April 2007
    * NewScientist.com news service
    * Tom Simonite



A substance that mimics mucus has been used by UK researchers to improve the performance of odour-sensing "electronic noses". The enhanced devices can pick apart more complex smells, the team says.

Humans detect smells using more than 100 million specialised receptors on the roof of the nasal cavity, just behind the bridge of the nose. The complex manner in which multiple receptors react to a molecule is used to identify and differentiate them.

Electronic smell sensors work on the same principal but have just tens of sensors. They are used commercially, in food manufacturing quality control, for example, and can sometimes even detect diseases like cancer.

But electronic noses are far less sensitive than biological ones. This is partly because the receptors in a human nose are covered in a thin layer of mucus, which helps them detect scents.

This layer of mucus dissolves scents and separates their components chemically, using chromatography. Different odour molecules then reach receptors at slightly varied times. As a result, the receptors have another way to distinguish between compounds.
Two-metre nostril

Julian Gardner and colleagues at Warwick University, UK, along with researchers at Leicester University, UK, created an artificial mucus layer to mimic this process.

The team placed a 10-micron-thick layer of polymer - normally used to separate gases - over a line of 40 electronic sensors, within a 2.4-metre-long channel. A variety of different odours were then passed through the channel and statistical analysis of the sensors' output was used to try and differentiate the smells.

Tests ranged from simple compounds like ethanol and toluene vapour, to more complex ones like peppermint and vanilla. The results show that the mucus substitute boosted performance significantly.

For example, the sensor would not normally be able to distinguish between the smell of milk and banana. But, with the mucus layer, it can tell these odours apart by analysing the time it takes for different chemical components to arrive.
E-nose best

"We believe that exploiting this approach could lead to significant improvement in the capability of a new generation of e-noses," the researchers write in the journal Proceedings of the Royal Society A. "Such a system would offer faster analysis times … and be able to identify simple and complex odours better than current e-nose instruments."

Anthony Turner at Cranfield University, UK, who is working on using e-noses to detect tuberculosis for the World Health Organisation, is impressed. "This team has pioneered this field for years," he told New Scientist, "it sounds like an exciting new approach."

Turner adds that the study shows the importance of continuing to take inspiration from biology. "It's important to keep learning from it," he says.
