Consumer Reports finds many Americans can't resist risky behavior:

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 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.
