But you probably understand the use of a tissue.

Do you mean I'm not supposed to drag my nose across the head of the person in front of me?

No joke though this last one I just had, tissues were useless anyway. I couldn't clear my left nostril if my life depended on it.

Through the nostrils? I know that some drugs are taken that way, but I wasn't aware that they were good for colds.

Better hair as well, even back when he still had that balding/ponytail/mullet combo going on.

When your septum falls out, there's nothing to block anymore. Win-win.

Speaking of camels (feral camels, that is), there's a bit of an uproar here because 10,000 are going to be shot. They've gone a bit mad due to the lack of water, and are tramping around remote communities trying to get water out of air conditioners, knocking down fences and small children, etc. There's a cull every 10 years or so, as their numbers double every 8 - 9 years. Current numbers are between 1 - 1.2 million.

I don't like seeing an ant killed let alone these magnificent beasts, but I don't really see an alternative. They're feral animals that were introduced into Australia ie not native to the country. If numbers aren't kept under some sort of control then they'll die through lack of water/food. Still, it is sad.
