Sneezing

Why do I find sneezing particularly satisfying and actively encourage one that 'threatens' by looking at a bright light.
I also feel cheated when one dies without finalising despite my best efforts.

Re: Sneezing

Lol I know many people who use the bright light technique. Screw the god particle found recently by the hadron collider, finding out how light triggers an itching sneeze would of been a much more satisfying research result  Wink
As for being cheated if you don't finish the sneeze, my OH often pinches my nose to ruin the moment  Angry

They say that a sneeze is akin to an orgasm. The anticipation is huge but if it doesn't happen the disappointment is just a big.

Re: Sneezing

Sneezing for me ends up with a sore throat as once they start are hard to stop and if I am bunged up it gets very messy quickly

That reminds me of a Chubby Brown joke which I will resist the temptation to recite.

Sneezing 14 times in a row last week was particularly enjoyable Smiley

Re: Sneezing

Sneezing can be dangerous when driving.
But, what about when you don't want to make too much noise when sneezing, and are gripped by one of those suppressed "internal" sneezes. Often wonder if they might just be medically dangerous. Certainly don't feel any better after having one.
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

Re: Sneezing

If the one I found is the one you inferred then I don't see it as being particularly offensive, if at all Smiley
Shhhhh!!! Did it have anything to do with being on a plane?
