James, in a typical conversation that began with "Smell my finger!" and ended with "Pardon me while I kiss the sky!" posed the following intriguing question, which answer I do not know.

Do whales have mucus in their blowholes? (Translated from the original James.) And I'd add, do they sneeze? Do they get stuffed up? Is the cloud of spray from a whale spouting in part whalesnot? I sort of suspect that the sheer power of the ejecting air would render any stuffiness moot, but now I'm curious...

I gotta say by all the responses- how many here have useless Biology degrees that have nothing to do with their current jobs, their lifestyle, or anything in particular?

I'm one- I counted two or three others...

As you may have gathered from my above message, I'm one. The closest I get to working with my degree nowadays is having wildlife pictures around my desk at my job ;)

Yup, I'm definitely one. I got a moderately useless Classics (Latin & Greek, etc.) degree while I was at it too, but my grammar and spelling is nearly impeccable, in part thanks to it. But I enjoyed almost all the classes I took, it's why I majored in those departments. About the closest my current income endeavors bring me to animals are the pets some of my clients have.
