Blackheads

This is a confusing one for me, since I actually am an obsessive squeezer of the damn things and derive no small satisfaction from the act, but I hate the little bastards.

Why are they ALWAYS on my nose? Why? I know everyone has them, but what has led our species' nasal pores to malfunction like this? Do the little reservoirs of congealed oil serve some heretofore unknown purpose? What can we do to stop this gritty, oily little plague?

Oh, a sidenote. Fun blackhead-squeezing simulation: take a porous cracker, butter thickly, place another cracker on top and compress. Giddy delight. Add marmite to the top cracker for extra verisimilitude.
