anything better than a good sneeze?

i currenttly have a bit of a cold, which, when added to my usual allergies, has produced quite a bit of sneezing. Got into this conversation w/ a coworker today--i LOVE to sneeze. i think it feels so damn good, it is almost orgasmic. She thought i was . which brings me to my next point--i HATE the early "bless you" people. dont they know that a premature (although good intension) bless you makes your sneeze crawl back up inside of you?

anyone else like to sneeze or am i just weird?

Not much better according to Truman Capote.

Not a fan of sneezing. However, I do enjoy a nice colon cleansing.

I usually sneeze after a good meal (at least seven times in a row) and can also induce a sneeze by looking at a bright light or direct sunlight (briefly)

what was that line from jackie brown?

"sneezing, like, gives you a better high."

as for the bless you, f that. if you sneeze, you should excuse yourself and everyone should look away with disgust, not gaze with awe as you tilt your head back to sneeze.

I like the "bless you." It seems like one of the few common courtesies that you can get from stranger in this day.

But when I have a cold, I hate to sneeze. Have one now, and I end up with snot hanging out my nose. But when I am healthy, I enjoy a good sneeze.

i, too, enjoy the nice-ness of bless you. i just hate it when it is given prematurely before i have sneezed. causes my sneze to high tail it into reverse and crawl back inside my nose, which is a very unpleasant situation.

I'll give a bless you after one sneeze. My girlfriend will sneeze about 6 times in a row. No "bless you" after all of that.

I find the 'bless you' highly annoying and wish people would mind their own business.

No, I hate sneezing. I had a 2nd degree shoulder seperation and when I sneeze really hard the shooting pains down my arm are unbelieveable.

I find that taking a dump is much more satisfying than sneezing,

I don't like to sneeze if it's followed by a second sneeze. Just sneeze once and end it!

My wife has alergies and gets into these sneezing sessions that can last minutes. I give her what I call a "blanket God Bless You" which covers all the previous sneezes in the sequence and any future sneezes that may follow within the next minute. I mean, you sneeze 20 times, I'm not giving you 20 God Bless You's. It's a waste of God's powers. He can only bless you so much.

sometimes everything hurts right after I sneeze--then its no fun.

And why in the hell is saying 'bless you' nice? It means nothing. Offering someone a tissue would be nice. If you are religious and care about someones wellbeing how about making a real difference in the world instead of promptly spouting mindless platitudes? Jesus would say such people are Pharisees.

Saying thank you is polite because you are showing grace and humility at receiving something. 'Bless you' by itself is meaningless.

I hate sneezing almost as much as I hate yawns, coughs, and hiccups. It is a terrible demonic curse on the human body.

Also, I usually don't say bless you to people. I usually go with a "You are so good looking" or something like that.

Agree completely. Sneezing is almost orgasmic. I usually only sneeze once, rarely twice in a row. My wife's sneezes, however, come in groups no less than 4. Sometimes as many as 7. I have to wait for a sizable pause before I bother to say "Bless you".

She's so lucky she can have multiple sneezes

You people have clearly answered the question as whether there is anything better than sneezing.

COmpletely agree.

Note to self: For some women, the 'G' spot seems to be located in the nose. Try some nasal stimulation and/or penetration although the later might require a lot of lube.

Yes, actually. There's nothing like a good, ripping, juicy fart that blows clear across a room and empties the gases out of you from the esophagus down.

When you're alone, of course.
