ages, and then you start to see sneezing Still have this, like, mystical kind of connotation. But it starts to take a negative turn. The idea that a sneeze could be a bad um and, ah, sign up of some impending doom. Um, and of course, this only got stronger. A lot of this may have occurred because of the bubonic plague, and you had people who were quite sick and sneezing, too, which obviously was not like the most serious thing happening to somebody with the plague, but could have also been happening. And so sneezing took on this ominous air. Probably for good reason. Because if somebody near you a sneezing and the plagues going around and you start thinking, huh, did they have the plague? It could be pretty scary, right? And so you start to see that through that from the Middle Ages on a sneeze usually means hey back. You wanna go over there? You wanna hang out somewhere else, or e don't know anything about germs. I just know that I don't like that. And you should get away from me. You are also blasting a bunch of gnarly stuff out of the front of your head like it z intuitive. Well, you totally are. You've probably seen the pictures. A lot of people have seen them that they have, like the freeze, the stop motion pictures of somebody sneezing where they show, like all the snot and saliva And you Cus and bookers and germs and everything being blown out of your nose at 100 MPH. Maybe it's faras 5 ft away from you. I mean, it's pretty awful. Like, if that doesn't inspire you to wanna, like, dip your nose into your crook of your arm the next time you sneeze, I don't know what would, um, One quick thing is there has been this belief throughout a lot of history that I still hear voice today that your heart stops when you sneeze. Is that true? No. Your heart does not stop when you sneak. Of course not. That does not happen, but the fear may come from the fact that when you sneeze, the pressure inside your chest changes a little bit. And whenever you have, like like with breathing in or breathing out the pressure inside right surrounding like in the thoracic cavity surrounding the heart changes, and whenever that happens, you can have a subtle change in your heart rate. And so if if there is a like if your heart's beating along at a certain rate and then it slows down suddenly and there is a slightly longer pause between the next two beats, you may sense that when the next beat comes, it may feel like you may have an awareness of that next beat. It may seem harder, faster, anytime you're aware of your heart beating, by the way we call it palpitations. That's all that means. It's an awareness of it, the feeling or the sound or whatever. If you are aware of it, you're having palpitations on that. It could be very disconcerting when it happens, and it may be that happening enough made people think. Did my heart just stop and restart? Yeah, because it could. You might interpret it that way, like I really felt that next beat. Was it not beating for a second? Uh, but your heart does not stop when you sneeze. That's relief. That is not true. Thank goodness. Otherwise a lot of us would, you know, die. Yeah, because that thing's got a bump. Yeah, I want to tell everybody
