Y'know what, though, go ahead, people of Earth, pick away! If you need to pick, pick it up! Snag them boogers, nab those nose nuggets, scrape that snot, mine those nostrils! Whether or not I am unwittingly subconsciously compelling people to pick their nose in my presence, I'm okay with it.

Yeah, any picking of any sort carries a bit of excess of nasty, and the fact that it's always a person's hand-shaking hand doing the picking makes me want to re-popularize the bow and curtsey, but at least nose picking is ridding the body of invasive refuse, rather than self-generated nastiness.
(That's where I was going with this, right?)
