    It's a nervous habit, don't know why I do it. I hate them being long, too...

    Guess what.

    I Don't shower every day.
    I bite my nails.
    I don't wash my hands everytime I go to the bathroom.
    If I drop food on the ground I pick it up and eat it.
    I let the dog lick my face and I often even lick back.
    I voted for "yes I do" in the " do you pee in the shower thread"
    etc etc

    And I hardly ever get sick, immune system ftw.
    Freak.

    Humans are to inferior to grow large nails, for they are not claws. Humans have no natural means to rend flesh, so why lie about it?

    You may not, but sounds like the people around you get sick quite often :P
    Though we do need to be exposed to a certain amount of bacteria on a daily basis.

    I have the bad habit of picking my nose so I refrain from biting my nails

    I used to bite nails when I was younger, but then I heard nails were really dirty so I stopped.

    I bite my nails consistently. If my fingers aren't occupied by a game controller, keyboard, pen/pencil or food I bite my nails.
    I also chew my lips, though I try to cut down on that because it gets painful after a while.

    But nails yeah, every day. Can't help it!
    I fail to see the big problem. I bite them when standing on the tube, at the dinner table, sitting in front of my computer, watching TV, talking to friends...
    And to some extent the skin around my nails. Just on the tips of my fingers. I bite there too.

    Ironic isn't it.
    Chopping boards have more germs (and dangerous ones) than most places in a house.

    Interestingly this is discussed in Lord of the Rings interviews. Elijah Wood bit his nails on set and didn't have them manicured etc for when filming began. Ian Mckellen noticed and confronted him about it asking him if he was not embarrassed that everyone would know he bit his nails. Elijah was apparently really confused and answered "No, why would I be?"

    Sometimes when I'm bored. I used to bite my nails a lot, but that was a few years ago.

    Sometimes.

    I used to bite my nails all the time, but I got rid of that habit when I got braces. I've been without braces for ten years now, and I haven't gone back to fulltime nail-biting. Thank god. :P

    The human mouth is actually filled with bacteria. A dog's mouth on the other hand is pretty clean. Not sure about the term, and I know cats got more of it, but I remember they got something in their saliva that kills the bacteria? Cats since they kinda depend on cleaning themselves with their tongues, and most other carnivours because they eat raw meat etc.

    I bite my nails on rare occasions. I never do it in public. Not because of other people seeing it, but because at home it's my bacteria and I wash my hands often(I draw/paint so kinda have to). Not so fond of other peoples bacteria :P

    Aye. I never get sick though. Must be my kick-ass immune system. Probably like 1 sick day a year on average.
