Man, I sneeze at least 8 times in a row (i have gone up to 12, but i ALWAYS hit at least 8).. I would be in bad shape if that was the case.

Morrigan, you didn't really just chow snopes with a link to a snopes page, did you?

I doubt your heart would stop, but it always scares the CRAP out of me if I go into a sneezing fit while driving.

Since it wasn't snopes asking the question, I thought it appropriate. It was from (I'm guessing) and e-mail, since he started it with the "Comment" part.

And the site was relevent!
