Bone Up on Boogers

Call it what you want - snot, mucus, boogers, phlegm or slime - that gross stuff in your nose works hard to keep you healthy. It's a tough job, but something's got to do it.

It's Snot a Bad Thing

Snot is that slimy, gooey stuff that is technically known as mucus (Myoo-cuss.) Mucus membranes line the inside of your nose and sinuses and secrete snot to protect your body from invaders like germs, pollen and dust. The snot traps the tiny particles of junk that you breathe in so they don't make their way into your lungs and make you sick. If germs do sneak in, and you get sick, you'll probably get a runny nose cuz your body makes extra snot to wash away the germs.

What It Is (And What It's Snot)

Snot is mostly water. It also has salt and chemicals in it that help it stay sticky. Snot and spit might look similar but they aren't the same stuff. Spit comes from salivary glands inside the mouth.

It's Snot Lunch

Boogers are those hard, crusty globs that get stuck in your nose. They form when dirty snot dries out. What ever you do, don't eat that booger! Not only is it really gross, it's also bad for you cuz boogers are full of germs and other yucky things. However, you can't help eating a lot of snot cuz you're constantly swallowing the stuff. The average person swallows about a quart of snot a day. Yummy.

I am a feminist so i believe women deserve everything that men do and men deserve everything that women do so if a guy can get in trouble so can a girl. Girls are scientifically smarter than boys. Our brains mature much quicker than male brains. And also, we have a better sense of facial recognition and also a better sense of responsibility. This to me means that girls have more mental capabilities than boys do. This means that we are more intelligent. And intelligent does not mean smart. Smart people are really good at math and science and those kinds of things that lawyers, doctors and teachers need to be fitted for their careers. Intelligent people are good at a multitude of things including art(any form) and games. Intelligent people tend to be more creative than smart people. So, UNDERSTAND THE DIFFERENCE!!! I am a feminist too. Yes, we deserve to be treated equally. But, on what basis do you make the argument that girls have better sense of responsibility? And what facts do you have to show that women have more mental capabilities than boys?
