I know it's enough to have to see on TV the nasal mucus dangling from the noses of olympic cross-country skiers without having to read about it, but those slime icicles are there and must be dealt with.
The solution is a skin-colored adhesive patch, placed under the nostrils (of the skier). The
patch is covered with a powder that turns black/brown on contact with moisture. Voila...any revolting, excess mucus production is transformed into a handsome mustache. Factors such as temperature, speed and wind would determine its form resulting in, for example, a Fu Manchu or handlebars.
Admittedly the market niche is not large for this product, limited as it is to elite, male cross-country skiers, but winter sports audiences of the world would be eternally grateful...or then again...maybe not.
||Perhaps there should be a wire or somesuch which upon contact with the aforementioned snot indicates the competitiors number dangling midair:
||Croissant. I believe this will be so popular that other winter atheletes who currently waste valuable energy occassionally sniffing, such as female figure skaters, will rapidly adopt.
||I imagine most athletes would end up looking like Hitler.
