Automatic Picker-Stopper

A solution for all of those people who pick their nose as a habit

Basically, this will help people who pick their nose habitually, without even realizing it. Plant a small electrode in the person's pointer finger, and one just inside each nostril. When the person begins picking their nose, they receive a small electric jolt, or a buzzer goes off, delivered by means of a small box they wear at their waist. By matter of simple conditioning, the person will learn to stop picking their nose. Problem solved!!!

       could we add a REALLY powerful electrode planted in the mouth?

       You could just use Capsaicin hand soap.

       If people can't pick their noses, they won't be able to drive IMHO.
