    This is the only tangible evidence I've found.

    About picking your nose
    Another picking peril: Let's say you ram your hand up your nose very, very hard. This could push the ethmoid bone into your brain. And that can cause death.

    I guess it is a possiblity, but I have heard somewhere it's not possible. If someone can find other facts (not movies) that would be good.

    If you dissagree prove it, but I know you can't lol.
    to anwser the question, breathing becomes way harder and it affects your cardio, not to mention ur nose bleeds like a fauset of blood.


    and harlem, it has happened before. ever watch forensic files on court tv? one with a guy that killed somebody that exact way. with your palm. it is taught in martial arts self defence to protect your life. talk ur palm and hit the nose as hard as you can from the bottom up, dont just hit the nose.

    It's happened plenty of times in history, and it a well known technique in TMA circles.

    There is a more recent example of it here, recorded in 1991:

    Err, you must not have heard of the "nasal bone." The tip of the nose is cartilage, but the bridge is bone (grab the part of your nose where it joins the forehead with your thumb and pointing finger and squeeze; then do the same to the tip of your nose. Feel the difference?). Gabe's break was bad enough to make me think it'd be dangerous to continue fighting; since you'd be "somewhat" incapacitated with blood gushing out and down your throat, I'd think it'd be much easier to get seriously hurt.
