No, because I won't be able to do it, then I'll feel stupid for trying and I might bash my elbow against a solid edge in rage and injure myself... we couldn't have that now, could we?

I've tried it when I heard that one before and I know I can't do it. The one I'd dispute most strongly is the "bless you" one: I'm sure I've read somewhere that people said that to a sneezer when the Black Death was decimating the country. Several aaaah ones there. I like the horse statue one.

Strangely, the one that worries me is the bacteria in the ear through wearing headphones.

I wear my plug-in ones all night :ohmy: And what is worse, I often find the radio and eaphones on the floor in the morning! Ewwwww! Quick, where do I get some anti-bacterial ear wipes?
