    Why doesn't my boogers smell?

    I mean really....I can't smell them....is this normal? I thought boogers were supposed to smell all salt-like, but these smell like nothing.

    Should I try to sell them off as a laundry freshener?

    It's because boogers are mostly composed of flavor molecules. Try eating them, instead.

    Salty.

    But this is like 16 years ago, haven't tasted them lately. Have a dinner tonight in a nice restaurant with a hot chick, I don't want the aftertaste to linger.

    Shouldn't it be "why don't my boogers smell" or "why doesn't my booger smell?"

    I don't know pick it and put in someone elses nose...maybe you have poor sense of smell...someone else will have a different perspective.

    Maybe you just think they have no smell. I"m pretty sure if you pick your nose and ask any random person to smell your buggers, they're gonna tell you that it smells like crap.

    They don't smell because they just came out of your nose. Let them sit on your fingertip for a couple of minutes while your sense of smell neutralizes, then smell. See...?...

    Why would they smell salt-like? Salt has zero vapor pressure, making it impossible to smell on its own. (Go sniff a big tub of salt. We have a 20 kg one in the lab if you want to sniff that one. Odorless.) Yes, you can smell salt by the ocean, but that's because of tiny droplets of salt water in the air. Your booger presumably isn't being broken up into an aerosol.
