And in the Netherlands you sit down with your head between your knees and pinch the bony part of your nose.

I can remember one time when we were in Belgium in a swimming pool I got kicked in the nose and had a nosebleed. They put what looked like a tampon in my nose (including a pull string). I think a tissue hanging out of your nose is better than a small OB.
