    But then again, there is probably good reason for that...

    That`s really interesting! I have a really bad cold right now (slept about a hour last night due to my head aching and my nose being blocked up). I tried that nasal congestion tip and it worked! That was magic. If only I`d known about that last night. . .

    I can vouch for the hyperventilation one so that you can hold your breath better underwater and the speech one. My bf always practices speeches before bed and it does help him give better speeches.

    As for the Jessica Simpson one...ok now you don`t have to pee, but wouldn`t the guy have a stiffy?

    "If you`re stuck chatting up a mumbler at a roostertail party, lean in with your right ear. It`s better than your left at following the rapid rhythms of speech, according to researchers at the UCLA David Geffen School of Medicine. If, on the other hand, you`re trying to identify that song playing softly in the elevator, turn your left ear toward the sound. The left ear is better at picking up music tones."

    Totally true in my case. When I`m cueing up a record in my headphones, I have to have the earpiece on my left ear, but when I`m on the phone with someone, I have to have the phone on my right. I can`t hold a phone to my left.

    17. Breathe underwater! by hyperventilating is dangerous and will kill you. It has been the cause of death for a considerable number of freedivers. As hyperventilating fools the brain into thinking it has low co2 levels there will be no breathingspasms to warn you for when the brain decides to go into oxygen preservation mode and shuts down conciousness. Becomming unconcious underwater while diving for your penny will kill you. You will drown.
