    Here's my contribution to the inanity that is OT.

    I'm starting to get on in years (27), and I'm starting to suffer the scourge of excessive nose hair. So like any soul seeking wisdom, I beseech the oracle of TalkBass. What are you guys using to combat this plague within your nostrils? Machinery? Brute strength? Incineration?

    I pluck 'em. I take out the offenders as the appear. I've tried trimming with hair cutting scisors, but didn't have good results and I refuse to by a special device so pluck it is. It brings a tear to my eye.
    This reminds my of when I was just about 20 - I was at the barber shop for a hair cut and some old guy (a regular) was up before me and the 1st thing the barber asked him was "eyebrows and ears for you today?" I realized then that I had never even thought of trimming my eyebrows and wondered how long it would be. I'm 30 and I'm starting to get some really long eyebrow hairs from time to time - and yes, now I have trimmed the brows a time or two. My ears are still okay though.

    hmmmmmmm nose dildo
    well i dont call mine that but i have one
    comes with a few attachments so ya can clip yer brows back too
    plucking with a good tweezers is about the best method (good for the ears too) but plucking the nose hairs hurts like hell, i mean bad.

  7. why don't you guys just try that "nads" stuff in your nostrils?

    Gee, I wonder why the call the stuff nads...
  8. I use the nail scissors in a mini swiss army knife.

    I use a Wahl nose dildothingy. Wahl is a pro men's hair care outfit, and it seems to me to be the best built. I've use a couple different ones too, so my opinion is based on experience. Oh, you might say, this guy has really done a bit of research on this. Yes, would be my reply, cause when you're 48, by then you're dealing with ear hair as well as nose hair! Did I hearn an ....."Ewwww?" :eyebrow:

    If you like putting nads in your nostrils, be my guest.

    I just randomly yank 'em out with my fingernail tips.

    Same age, same problem.

    Heres my solution.

    1) pinch hairs with index finger and thumb
    2) pull
    3) repeat

    "Beavis! That dude rips nads outta his nose!"
    "Really? Cool! I'm gonna try that!"
    "You've got nose nads..."

    I use the trimmer attachment on my Panasonic shaver. I also have a nose hair trimmer thingy but the blades are getting dull, so it pulls the hairs.

    Benjamin, ear hair is next. I don't have it bad yet, but I have two or three hairs near the entrance of each ear that I have to keep trimmed back.

    Plucking nose hairs is a guilty pleasure. My problem is with the super-hair. You know. The big one. The big, grey one. The big, grey one that has the tensile strength of steel and is anchored somewhere near the base of your brain. They are staggering in length and more than a little frightening. Uber-hair.
