Technical Tuesday Sneeze

Technical Tuesday Sneeze

In the Rules of Life Book under “Don’t Try This at Home” is today’s Factoid: It is almost impossible to sneeze with your eyes open.Well, according to www.discovery.com/tv-shows/mythbusters:

The nose and eyes are linked by cranial nerves, so the stimulation from the sneeze travels up one nerve to the brain, then down another nerve to the eyelids, triggering a blink for most people. However, it's possible for some people to sneeze with their eyes open…”

Therefore, it is our automatic blinking response that makes us close our eyes when we sneeze. And, according to https://www.thesun.co.uk/living/2362600/is-it-possible-to-sneeze-with-your-eyes-open-yes-says-expert-but-in-most-cases-the-bodys-blinking-response-sets-in/, the blinking response prevents germs from going into your eyes when you sneeze.

There you have it!

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Anatomical Factoid #27xx:
“It is almost impossible to sneeze with your eyes open.”
