Swab your ears? Survey says you're not alone - Behavior - MSNBC.com

Pfffff and 30% never wear sunglasses when there is a
solar flare directly at the apex of a lunar alignment during
mars retrograde.

I hate statistics

Er, these are the risky behaviors? I was expecting crocodile wrestling, skydiving, and stealing ice cream from sad women.

Meh, if I don't swab, I'll end up inadvertently picking my ear with my pinky. That's gotta be worse.

You can swab, but you shouldn't breach the part where the ear canal narrows.

That's gross. 25% of Americans have some nasty ears.

That's where all the nasty crap is. If I can feel it in there, it's a-swabbin' time. Many apologies to my tympanic membrane.

Then just squirt some hydrogen peroxide in there. Works 10x better than swabbing and without that pesky popped ear drum.
