List them.  Feel free to list those of others, but not before confessing your own sins!

Mine: 

- bite my finger nails, 

- pick nose hairs out constantly, 

- pick nose over blowing

Disgusting ones I've seen over the years from students:

- Picking zits and eating them

- Picking nose and eating ... right in front of other students

I pluck unruly beard hairs and my wife hates it. I'll also give my nose a pick if necessary. And I'm not above eating food off the floor. My immune system is built like a fucking tank.

Eating zits? That's one of the grossest things I've ever heard.

If my balls itch - which they usually do - I will scratch/pinch/adjust them regardless of where I am.  I cannot be the best version of me until ball itches are rectified.  My wife doesn't appreciate that this is an immediate priority whenever it occurs.  But as I tell her, "I may never know what childbirth feels like.  But you'll never know the misery of unaddressed scrotal itches."

I shower every other day and wash my hair every four days. 

I don't bite my nails or pick at my skin for any reason.

I do pick nose hairs from time to time. Better than going out with one sticking a half-inch out of there with me wondering how the hell it grew that fast overnight! I also have popped (not eaten) zits and, in private, picked the nose (also, not eaten).

I’ll pick the nose if it’s the more efficient route to a blow...and it usually is. Never eat it though, and never eat a fucking zit.

When golfing, I will spit on my towel about 50x a round to clean the ball and clubs. If it’s hot AF out, I use the same towel to wipe my brow.

I leave leftover pizza in the box and keep it in the stove for 3 to 5 days (we don't use our stove a lot), and I always grab a piece out and eat it without nuking it.  Never had any problem/

I used to do the zit-popping in the bathroom at home and always washed properly before going out  Definitely not a problem when you reach 60, though.

Had a roommate in college who was in his own world.  Spent his time in the restroom looking in the mirror and popping his zits - then wiped them on the mirror.  Another roommate and I chewed him out over it, and he didn't see the problem.

Lol - doesn't anyone here use clippers for those pesky nose hairs?

Nose hairs are terrible. I do everything I can to pluck and trim them. I wish they'd stop.

It’s freaky how long some of those nose hairs are. I pulled one the other day that had to be close to rooting in my brain lol.

I feel this way sometimes about stray beard hairs. Like "seriously? No way in hell I have missed shaving this for the LAST 5 YEARS for it to get this long".


I swear the stray ones are like the cancer cells of hair, they grow abnormally fast.

Plucking nose hairs always makes me sneeze.

Eyebrow hairs are like this too.  One day, all trimmed to size, next day one has gone wild and is trying to wrap itself around your throat.

A buddy from college got a bad brain infection back in the day that was traced to supposedly plucking a nose hair

Sorry to hear about your classmate.

It reminds me of my high school health class textbook (late 1960's printing?) showing the "triangle of death", where if you squeezed zits on your face from forehead to under your nose, you'd get an infection that would travel to your brain and be fatal.
