Former 'Top Gear' Star James May Explains Where Snot Comes From

We all have strange questions, and Googling is one way to get answers. Or, we can just turn to British TV presenter James May, who, until recently, was one of the stars of the BBC’s gearhead-extravaganza “Top Gear.”

But May does other things, including answering oddball inquiries on Brit Lab’s YouTube channel, from the BBC. In this installment of “James May’s Q&A,” he tackles, “Where does all the snot come from?”

It’ll give you a whole new appreciation for mucous, phlegm and snot, which, if not making cold and flu season more fun, at least makes it less of a mystery.
