Thread Name: BS: How do you sneeze?
Subject: RE: BS: How do you sneeze?
I keep hearing about "sneezing into your elbow". How the hell do you do that? I can sneeze into my inner arm, but my elbow is on the opposite side of my arm from there. No matter how I try, I can't twist my own arm around far enough to sneeze into my elbow without doing severe damage. If I could do it, I'd probably wind up screaming into my elbow, not sneezing, in response to the excruciating pain that would result. Hell, I can't even see my elbow without a mirror!

And even if I could twist my arm far enough, how could I sneeze "into" my elbow? Elbows flex the wrong way. They make something like a cone, not a bowl. If you were able to sneeze onto your elbow, it would disperse germs, not contain them.
