The Nussy, or the “nose pussy”, if you will, was discovered during the corona virus pandemic of 2020. People that had to be tested for Covid-19 had to have their nose swabbed right where the brain connects, which often led to people rolling back their eyes and gagging.

A nose-swab-fetish developed from this, because we, as humans, ruin everything.
“Oh fuck yeah, swab my nussy”

Sir, please, I went to medical school

Linguistics is a field of study focusing on the structure of language. Completely captivating and impossibly satisfying.
A 2 year old child learns on average 9 new concepts a day. Somehow the brains of toddlers can intuit multiple abstract concepts over the course of a day. Do you remember what it was like to understand what a drain is? a lock? to sweat? to worry? to forget? glass? digestion? Linguistics explores the way people use language and its connection to the brain/cognitive development.
