is there an english word for the dutch "geneuzel" (neus means nose)?

geneuzel is what happens when a group is endlessly deciding what's good. it happens when a group of 10+ people with 3 cars try to decide who's driving in each car. all sorts of useless arguments are being pulled in and you fail to come to a decision within 10 minutes.

it's not about the best thing to do, that would be called mierenneuken (ant fvcking). if you are practising mierenneuken, you'd be pointing out that your opinion is the very best because you want to be exactly right about everything. things have to be precise and accurate, otherwise you aren't satisfied.
