People have boogers because when you breathe in, all the dirt in the air gets trapped into your boogers so the dirt won't go down your lungs. Snot is also made of tiny particles that are in the air we breathe like germs and pollen. When debris gets trapped in your tiny little nose hairs, it mixes with snot or mucous which can then become a booger. A booger can be wet with mucous, or can become dried.

There is no answer because boogers are just dead brain cells and dirt that you breathe in. And some people don't blow their nose so that boogers just build up.
