This is getting bizarre, I know, but have you ever wondered **how** many times you blow your nose when you have a streaming cold ?
Not only have I wondered, but I undertook a survey when I had said filthy cold last week.
The things I do in the spirit of scientific enquiry :-)
In the first (and worst) 36 hours of my cold, I used 3 toilet rolls to blow my nose. (Andrex toilet rolls if you are sufficiently curious !)
I always use 2 sheets of toilet paper per blow, and there are 240 sheets of paper on each roll.
So we have a total of 720 sheets on 3 rolls, divided by 2 , giving a grand total of
********* 360********* episodes of nose-blowing in 36 hours.
10 nose-blowings per hour, including at night.
No wonder I was exhausted from lack of sleep, LOL.
