Top 3 Things: Sneezing Edition

Hello Spring! Beside the obvious weather change, the reason I know Spring is officially here is that my news feeds on Facebook and Twitter are full of the woes of the dreaded allergies! So, I thought I’d gear tonight’s list toward that whole mess.


Here are the Top 3 Things you didn’t know about sneezing:


#3 Closing your eyes while you sneeze is an involuntary reflex. And no, if you sneeze with your eyes open, they won’t pop out of your head. Apparently that’s a thing…?


#2 Why do we sneeze? It’s been compared by researchers to rebooting your computer. Sometimes, your nose just can’t handle life and needs to be reset. 


#1 The fun guys at Mythbusters tested how fast sneezes can travel and recorded theirs at 35 miles per hour. Hmmm.

A majority of my growing up years were spent in Wanamaker, a small town just barely inside Franklin Township. Two of my neighbors were corn fields so my two sisters, younger brother, and I got into lots of trouble. I'm a proud Greyhound and graduate from the University of Indianapolis. I've worked for a few other stations throughout Indianapolis, collected a few awards along the way, and here I am! When I'm not at work, you can assume I'm with my family, reading a comic book, consuming too much TV and movies for one single person, trying to find time to volunteer, or snuggling one of my five pets (3 cats, 2 dogs. Pictures available upon request.).
