Blackish star Tracee Ellis Ross should not wax her nose hair with a swab – it is nasty

My god! I must declare my feelings with this story from the Huffington Post! Icky and stupid!
Blackish star Tracee Ellis Ross showed her Instagram followers just how she handles unsightly nose hair Tuesday, and it aint fun.
Apparently she puts hot wax on a Q-tip and sticks it up her nostril and then takes it out.
“HAS ANYONE EVER HAD THEIR NOSE HAIRS WAXED? ~ let this be a lesson to you: just say no,” Ross captioned her video.
No Ms. Ross, I have never had my nose hair waxed off – because I want to smell afterward. Wouldn’t that mess up your sniffer?
While this question cannot be answered at this time – nor will it ever – I can tell you that”Most experts agree that you shouldn’t remove your nose hairs, because they act as a filtration system that keeps out germs, while also helping to trap dust and debris . There’s also an added risk when you pluck, wax or shave nose hairs.
According to Anthony Del Signore, MD, assistant professor in the department of otolaryngology and director of rhinology and endoscopic skull base surgery at Mount Sinai Beth Israel when you remove your nose hair “You do remove that level of protection into the nasal cavity whether it be particles or foreign objects getting in there.”
“The hairs emanate from follicles in the skin and sometimes bacteria can get in there, especially for people that shave their nose hairs or pluck them. It sort of leaves an entry for bacteria and for infection,” he said. “That usually manifests itself with increasing redness or tenderness and pain.

He explained that the redness is a sign of cellulitis (a potentially serious bacterial skin infection ) or folliculitis (a skin condition where hair follicles become inflamed ). These conditions can lead to pus, the formation of abscesses and skin that is warm to the touch.

A reminder of what an island is defined as

Yes Mr. President Puerto Rico is an island we all know this based on looking at a map. The President had this to say about Puerto Rico on Friday. ‘This is an island surrounded by water, big water, ocean water’ he said.
Yes that is what an island is. According to the dictionary an island is defined as: “a tract of land completely surrounded by water, and not large enough to be called a continent.”

These are the answers of the world’s shortest IQ test.

These are the answers
___

1. The ball would actually cost $.05.

If the bat costs $1 more than the ball, you need to think outside the box.

While it might be easy to assume that the ball is $.10, that would make the bat $1.10 as it costs $1 more than the ball.

In order to keep the total at $1.10, the ball has to be $.05 – and the bat worth $1.05.

2. It would take 5 minutes to make 100 widgets

Five machines can make five widgets in five minutes.

This means that one machine will make a widget in five minutes, too.

Therefore, 100 machines all making widgets can make 100 widgets in 5 minutes.

3. It would take 47 days for the patch to cover half of the lake

The patch is doubling in size each day going forward, so it would halveeach day going backward.

This means that on day 47, the day before it covered the whole lake, it would be halfway there. ___
See what I mean?

I failed The Cognitive Reflection Test – a 3-question iq test that isn’t as easy as it seems

I graduated from one of the most respected universities in the world and yet this simple 3-question test through me for a loop. Let us see how you do.
___
The world’s shortest IQ test A bat and a ball cost $1.10 in total. The bat costs $1.00 more than the ball. How much does the ball cost? If it takes 5 machines 5 minutes to make 5 widgets, how long would it take 100 machines to make 100 widgets? In a lake, there is a patch of lily pads. Every day, the patch doubles in size. If it takes 48 days for the patch to cover the entire lake, how long would it take for the patch to cover half of the lake? The answers are coming soon.

a fire fighter in New York told people that fire fighters don’t run in to buildings

A fire fighter in New york City remarked that fire fighters don’t run into buildings. This is the quote that the New York Post posted:
“It can be a dangerous job, but it’s not nearly as dangerous as people think,” Capton Paul Washington said in his presentation. “We do not run into burning buildings. ___
Isn’t that your job? To run into the building if someone is trapped? To be our savior when we are burning or scared? ___
His own union disagrees with him.
“Yes, we do ‘run’ into burning buildings it is our job1′ the executive board of the United Fire Officers Association said in an angry statement. “If one does not react and ‘run’ into a fire upon hearing a report of ‘children trapped’ or ‘people trapped1’ perhaps this is not the profession for you.

how I remember heal vs heel thanks potus for helping me

President Trump made a mistake when he used the wrong kind of heal. Granted I will never claim to be the best speller on WordPress. To do so would be a pile of crap! However, POTUS’s mistake gave me an idea.
heal = healthhealth has the word heal in it. So, if I remember that heal and health have an ea in it then I will not make the mistake.
