Nose Hair View Avoidance; Recs Wanted
Posted by: Buzz
Date: September 14, 2020 03:34PM
Zoom. Zoom. Zoom.
Lotsa Zoomin' going on, and the on the family meetings there's too much of this...



Primarily looking up the in-laws' noses.
I'm willing to throw a few bucks at the problem to buy the most offensive in-laws their own iPad tripods/stands to raise their webcams up above their current nostril view positions.

The question is; what do we like for about $20, or so, that will raise, and hold their iPads above the offending nasal views that everybody else has to deal with?
Thanks.

I've tried turning off their video feeds, but some of the others in the meeting want to see their admittedly adorable pets, and the offenders are a bunch of "why me" whiners. For ~$20/ea., I'm hoping to solve the problem peaceably.

Just as eyebrows should be two separate areas, a mustache and the hair from two nostrils should make up THREE separate areas.

They make little iphone stands. My wife is recovering from shoulder surgery and has been using her stand when facetiming her family. In order to be able to see the screen, it has to be far enough away from you that it would avoid the problem you're having.

The in-laws all have iPads, so the little iPhone stands are too small. For whatever reason, the offenders all put their iPads way too low for viewer comfort. We need something that will raise their 'Pads at least 12" - 15" from the levels they've been using. As I said, throwing a few bucks at it seems like the best solution.

I have that trimmer (in blue), and this one that works better....

But still would like to get them something like this (that raises up more than 8")...



plus, their other, non-canine/feline halves, are allegedly females.

Have you tried sending them screen shots of themselves?

Waxing nose hairs is a hygienically bad idea. One reason that nose hair trimmers are so popular is that they are painless and they don't cause breaks in the skin inside the nasal cavity.

The nose is one of our main filters against pathogens entering the body via respiration (another reason it's better to breathe in through your nose, when possible). Waxing pulls hairs out by the root, opening the skin to infection at a location primed with trapped bacteria, viruses, etc.

Don't pluck or wax your nose hairs.

Unfortunately, Zooming w/ the in-laws falls somewhere in between You cant fix stupid, and It's damn near impossible to change stupid.

So, yes, screen shots accomplished little. OTOH, they seem to thrive on getting stuff for free, especially when it comes at other's expense whom they think are unfairly more successful than they have been. For $20, or so, a head, it's worth it not to have stare up their nostrils for a couple of hours a week. After over 30 hours of nostrils, I can't take it anymore. I was just hoping the peeps here had some experience w/ proper height iPad stands; since I won't have the luxury of hands on testing..... don't want to get something that falls a couple of inches short, that still leaves nose view.
