Humans? Swallowing their own snot? A whole pint?
How do you measure that??
Also it sounds like an urban legend.
Your fact robot needs some repair. :-P
Here's a fact you should put up here: "Instructables = teh best"
It is clinically proven. Also 100% of all users named Molten Boron approves of it.

Lowney (author)Molten Boron2009-10-06

Why, have you measured the amount of Snot that you swallow? Have you checked any external sources? Have you any evidence at all that the fact robot is wrong? NO! There fore YOU are more questionable than the fact robot.
