    You know, when you have one or both hands tied up... the nose is there, and it gets the job done...

    AHAHAHA, this thread is great. Yeah when I am boarding I use my nose. Also when I am working and my hands are all nasty I will answer my phone on my desk with my nose.

    No nut my 14 month old son does! Actually he only did that when he was 6 months old, now he knows how to scroll through his flash cards.

    My nose's job description doesn't say anything about this.

    Figured this thread would be started by another infamous OP.

    Nope, never used my nose, nor do I ever intend to.

    Well there was this one time I was eating a sand wich and at the same time fighting my friend off from taking the sandwich and I had to send something so I leaned over and used my tung. Tasted like glass man. The. I thought about how many times I touched that screen and how WHERE it had been and never did it again.

    I use my nose because it's usually closer than my elbow, but I might give the elbow a shot when my hands are grimey- I hadn't thought to use it before.

    Tried it to see how it would work a few times, but not a "noser." :p

    Bet you'd get quite a few strange glances in public! :D

    If you say *never*, you must live in a warmer climate. When you're all wrapped up and gloved up on a cold winter's morning, your nose is the only practical option. But in this scenario, I would recommend avoiding the downward scroll gesture. The mucus will freeze on your screen immediately :)

    Nope but sometimes I play TTR with my toes...works through my socks too.

    Wait, on second thoughts, I do use my nose occasionally to get stuff when one hand is busy. Except that my nose is rather greasy so...

    I sometimes use my nose in public just to get odd looks from people. My problem is that my eyes go all cross when I try it. Is it the same with you guys?

    It works well if you look first, then peck with your nose, with your eyes not fully focused while pecking. This way, you have enough visual guidance to get you to the target accurately, but not the headache that comes with crossed-eyes focusing too closely.
