I read today that rhinotillexis is on the decline, and that’s a good thing.

The term means “picking one’s nose with one’s fingers.” In an article by Jim Shahin in the February 15, 2008 issue of American Way, a Harvard study reveals that rhinotillexis is down 70% from the year before. The decline is attributed to the fact that cameras are everywhere and people are becoming more cautious about the activity for fear of showing up on YouTube and grossing out their friends.

So for you REALTORS® out there, here’s this friendly warning:  Please don’t pick and drive, especially with clients in the car or around cameras. You never know who’s watching. (Chalk this up to more helpful advice from your association.)
