When you get a nosebleed that won't stop, one recommendation is to press a cold, wet tissue to the bridge of the nose. Cooling the nose reduces its blood-flow, helping to stop the bleed.

However, a cold, wet tissue becomes a warm, wet tissue quite quickly. MaxCo. (Medical and Gardening Division) is therefore proud to launch its Nosecooler. The Nosecooler resembles a pair of spectacles in general design, but the bridge consists of a silicone rubber cup with a groove in it to accommodate the nose.

When nasal haemorrhage happens, simply pop an ice-cube and a splash of water into the cup, and then don the Nosecooler. The bridge of your nose will be intensely cooled for several minutes, staunching the Niagara of blood. As a bonus, it makes you looks ridiculous.

Heavy on the nose. Although, the down would staunch a flow. [wjt, Feb 16 2020]

       You'll need glasses to hold it on and perhaps a sponge below the nose to catch any blood not stopped by the device. (link)

       .....and when the cube half melts, it drops straight down into your G&T! Splash! Cheers [+]

       Ethyl acetate might give better cooling.   

       A Groucho Marx combined spectacles, eyebrows, fake nose and cigar would add considerable extra scope for additional features.

       Yes, [doc], like that only different.
MaxwellBuchanan, Feb 14 2020

       The eyebrows are just to look cool. (Seriously though, good idea. Yours not mine.) [+]

       Something like this would be very useful for those with chronic nosebleeds. My brother Dennis got them growing up almost weekly. Everywhere, blood everywhere.

       You could have just stopped hitting him on the nose, shirley ?
8th of 7, Feb 15 2020

       Yeah, he's the one that told me to blow in the sugar bowl and something "magical" would happen. Two weeks later when I was still washing sugar out of my eyes, I should have popped him one and game him the biggest bleed of his lips.

       Sibling violence; tragic, yet hilariously funny.

       Could somebody please bone this idea? I mean, sympathy buns are great an' all, but a man has his pride.
MaxwellBuchanan, Feb 15 2020

       I didn't bun it out of sympathy, I bunned it because it's an interesting and original idea.
Voice, Feb 15 2020

       Do you want an anti-sympathy bone, or do you want me to genuinely dislike this idea?
hippo, Feb 15 2020

       //Could somebody please bone this idea?//   


       If it were dumb I'd ignore it. I've got my pride too.
doctorremulac3, Feb 15 2020

       I wonder if a pint of ice cream would do the trick. Needs to be clinically tested
theircompetitor, Feb 15 2020

       [ ] It's slightly at odds with my recent spittoon acquisition.
FlyingToaster, Feb 15 2020

       // I've got my pride too //   

       Presumably you raised enough money panhandling for dimes on the street corner to buy it back out of hock ...

       //Presumably you raised enough money panhandling for dimes on the street corner to buy it back out of hock ...//   

       I'd rather make rhymes and panhandle dimes that handle a man's pickle for a nickle. (points an accusing finger in a taunting manner)   

       Hey Max, can we get back to smacking each other around like we always do? Obviously we're all getting a bit fatigued doing this "polite and respectful to each other" routine for your benefit. Frankly I'm exhausted. It has no bearing on you understand, it's just that we're here to break each other's balls and pretending to be civil is, well... tiring.
doctorremulac3, Feb 15 2020

       [Doc], I would welcome that. It's just the sort of uncivilised behaviour I've come to expect from you. Go for it.   

       The idea sucks, by the way. No, hang on, it was my idea. It's a great idea.
MaxwellBuchanan, Feb 15 2020

       //It's just the sort of uncivilised behaviour I've come to expect from you.//   

       Why thank you Max, I like to think I've perfected my game.   

       OK everybody! We can knock off the polite bullshit now!   

       Now Xenzag, what was that you were saying about Trump?
doctorremulac3, Feb 15 2020

       You can always bone yourself, although you normally have to use your extension for that.
4and20, Feb 16 2020

       I'd like the Tycho Brahe brass model please, two of them if it's not too much trouble.
tatterdemalion, Feb 16 2020

       Some tear off endothermic reaction strips ? to keep the ice cold.
