Comments on #235

When you sneeze, air and particles travel through the nostrils at speeds over100 mph. During this time, all bodily functions stop, including your heart, contributing to the impossibility of keeping one's eyes open during a sneeze.

Isn't Katie just oh so fucking special?
This isn't true. Mythbusters proved both of the false. A sneeze only goes about 13 mph and it IS possible to sneeze with you eyes open. I know all this and I am 14. This is extremely sad.
I always sneeze with my eyes open. I don't even have to try. :)
dude does anybody realiaze that a heart attack is a piece of tissue in your heart dying?
Sneezing can effect your heart rhythm. I have super-ventricular-tachycardia- many times random movements will throw my heart rhythm out of whack, causing palpitations. Sneezes also can, and have, induce this. Not all the time, but once in a while.
actually it does change the rhythm. there are tons of drugs that also do this. also the eventuality isn't a heart attack, it's torsades de pointes, usually caused by some pharmacological drugs that slow the beat down to a certain threshold. the pressure from a sneeze temporarily affects the heart, but never enough, even for a chronic sneezer , to cause torsade de pointes, or any other tachycardia like disorders
I can sneeze with my eyes open. It's great to know that I can do something most people can't.
indeed, the only thing that's true about this is the fact that the air will travel 100 mph. NO body function at all will stop, and 1 out of 10000 people can sneeze with their eyes open. Also, sometimes it's stated that your eyes will pop out - not true either, doesn't have to do anything with your eyes.
Mythbusters proved you can keep your eyes open during a sneeze
this is not true, the heart does not stop , if you think about it, the heart goes 'lub-dub--------lub-dub'. also you can keep your eyes open, but only with the use of tools, but this is because of the face screwing it's self up, not the heart 'stopping'
This is not true, your heart does not "stop", nor does it "skip a beat" that would eventually cause a heart-attack. One can keep their eyes open during a sneeze, you just have to try.
