It looks like a thinner. (I resisted the urge to say "Jeremy," too obvious.)

For nostril hair?

If you think that's for nostril hair then you need surgical intervention.

There comes a time in every marriage when the sole remaining interaction between spouses is when the wife alerts the husband to excessive hair in the nasal and aural regions.

I leave that duty to my Turkish barber in Amsterdam. So professional and no chitchat.

I context switch between English and Norwegian for 1 and 2.
English, almost exclusively, for 3.

The traditional repertoire of Norwegian swear words and phrases is almost entirely religious (or blasphemous, as it may be) in nature.

Cats in own abstract expressionist language, Ukrainian and Polish (ISayMoo has always shouted at me that I used words which didn't exist in Polish, and I think I just have a rich vocabulary!)

Counting in all languages I know and don't know, depending on the context (ich-ni-san-shi!)

Swearing - Imma lady! Well, I sometimes hiss "scheisse" in German when I lose control.

Spelling in English when in the Latin alphabet and Ukrainian when in Cyrillic.

Praying - en kayades!
