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.

I`m not sure if this works, but our science teacher said that if you have the hiccups, press as hard as you can against the palm of your hand.
Some try it out, see if it works :-P

I know that both the nasal congestion one and the itchy throat one both work because my friend Allison was asking everyone how to get decongested and I knew and it worked. It was pretty exciting.

"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.

^^^^ I think the doctor would probably wait until u finish caughing. Or u could tell him to do it while ur caughin, but that would be weird. Other than that, and the jessica simpson thing, it was pretty cool

Isn`t coughing when you`re having a needle stuck in your arm a little dangerous, but i`ll give it a 4 anyway :-D.

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?

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. . .

Got a tickly cough, so I tried the first about scratching your ear. It worked, but then I stopped to send this and it came back.

They didn`t say how peeing on your foot makes the Athlete`s foot itch go away!

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