    Thomas' description is the one I've heard. I've also heard the "heart stops" thing, but not in the context of it being the reason we say "bless you."


    I do, too.

    I assumed everyone does this, but maybe not.

    The root of my question had more to do with who the eff doesn't just wear their seatbelt?

    When I sneeze, I try to spray on as many people's faces as I can. My cheeks feel great as I shake my head from side to side and the force of the sneeze makes them flap about like a dog's with its head out the window.

    Then I say "bless you" to all whom I've sprayed. It's the only polite thing to do, really.

    I don't think I've sneezed in the last several years. Perhaps I'm not able to sneeze anymore.

    I've never seen my parents wear a seatbelt. They argue with me over it.

    You are missing out. Try looking at the sun. (I mean not too long and too directly, of course.)

    People who are looking for a parking spot on a downtown street where traffic was barely moving fast enough to make the needle on the speedometer move. I'm extremely diligent about wearing my seatbelt, but it was just dumb luck that a bunch of cops happened to be standing on the corner on the same evening I thought, "I'm not going to get into a terrible wreck doing 5 MPH while looking for a place to park, so I'll go ahead and take off my seatbelt so my shirt doesn't wrinkle right before I go out for the evening."

    Wait. Breaking a rib while sneezing is not that rare? :censored: All these years I sort of thought I was special for doing that.

    I've written a letter to Commissioner Bud Selig requesting that he void the result of the NLCS on the ground that the Giants' regular season victories were aided by Melky Cabrera. They shouldn't have even been in the playoffs because those wins should have been voided, like they do in college football. I need Selig to reply to me and to the nation by the time the game starts tonight, but he's been avoiding me. As the band Rush would say, by choosing not to decide, he is still deciding. (Hoping Selig is reading this so he will get on the ball.)

    work was a little frustrating today, and for some reason I made a bunch of paper airplanes to chuck at my office wall while listening to a conference call. I'm still at the office but the cleaning crew is in here early and some guy blasted in, picked up all of the planes, and then gave me a weird look before departing.
