That's me, I'm him...

DISCLAIMER: Although I am a car guy this is not solely a car blog. I will talk cars, but this is also a blog about how I view the world. Just ask my mom and she will tell you my first word was "car". I do have a slight fascination with them. Luckily I have a supportive family and a very understanding wife...

Nose hair...

What are your feelings on it? As far as I knew it was not very sociably acceptable – at least here in the U.S. Maybe it is one of those European things I read about in the expensive magazines. Here it seems those who have it don’t really want it. It hasn’t quit caught on like sideburns or the goatee. I haven’t seen anyone growing it out yet in hopes of trimming it into a prize winning topiary or something… hmmm, picture that.

But times, well, the must be a changin’. I recently saw that artificial nose hair was spotlighted at a show in Geneva. Seems there may actually be some sort of “demand” for such a thing.

The inventor was quoted as saying "Most people do not have enough nose hair."

Honestly? I mean have you met any male over 50?

He was also quoted as saying “"It's comfortable to wear and cheap."

Wow! Is this the toupee for the 21st century!

But I think what really sold me was the fact that “the hair can be washed and reused.”

GLOUCESTER, Mass. -- Actress Sandra Bullock and her husband Jesse James were unhurt after the car they were traveling in was struck by a drunk driver Friday night.
Police Lt. Jerry Cook said the Hollywood couple were being driven in an SUV at about 9:50 p.m. Friday when a car driven by Lucille Gatchell crossed the center line and hit them.
Cook said both vehicles were totaled but no one was hurt. He said both vehicles were traveling about 15-20 miles per hour.
Cook said Gatchell tested .20 on an alcohol breath test, more than twice the legal limit.
64-year-old Gatchell was arrested at the scene for driving under the influence.
Bullock and her "Monster Garage" husband are in Massachusetts while she finishes filming the romantic comedy "The Proposal" with Ryan Reynolds.
