    I heard that blowing snot rockets can be harmful. Is that true?

    Well, it's when you plug one nostril and blow the other one clean (usually what you have to do to clear your nose when you don't have anything to blow into).

    Well...its not the most sanitary method of nostril clearing, but it is effective. No real hazards to yourself, but if you have some sort of sinus infection-it greatly increases bacteria transmission from your snot covered hand to some other object.

    Hmmm... maybe I explained it wrong. At least the way I do it when I have to, it's to keep from contacting any snot.

    Maybe so, but it's a rare friggin thing. Your much more likely to perforate your eardrum stickin a Q tip in your ear than by blowing snot rockets. Hell, you can blow your eardrum blowing your nose <period> so its not that much more likely doing it by pluggin ONE nostril.
