I've never had a broken leg.

Maybe your nose just has not-so-tender tissue. Maybe you aren't blowing it all the time. Maybe you've stopped picking it, unlike the rest of us (just kidding).

Perfectly normal. I've never really had a nosebleed either. There's nothing wrong with you and nothing to worry about.

Well, the only time I've gotten a nose bleed is when my nose was broken (got kicked in the face in dance class 2 years ago)... *shrugs* Besides that I've never had one.

I also have nosebleeds from time to time. The only time I get a nosebleed is if I'm getting a cold or getting over a cold. They can be really annoying though because I have to lay with my head back for about 5 minutes or until they stop. BTW, I heard that it is not a good idea to put your head all the way back during a nosebleed because you can choke on your blood or something. Is that true???

Yeah, the blood can go down the back and down your windpipe if you happen to be breathing (note: not breathing is also bad for your health)
