High-pitched "atchoo" sound, force of sneeze varying randomly between light and extremely heavy.

Average sneezing sound? A polite turning the head away and sneezing into the elbow for me. People who sneeze into tissues are suspicious. No-one has enough time to dig into their pockets, take out a hankerchief and sneeze in time. Those who do must be psychic.

I do the quietest little sneezes when I'm with company. When it's just me and Pheesh they range from being audibly non-existant or really fucking loud elephant sneezes. No in between.

Ugh I just let out a titanic mega blast out of nowhere all over the kitchen floor. It caught me by surprise so I couldn't grab a tissue. At least it was easy to clean up.

Feel free to take this post entirely out of context if you so wish.

I sneeze into my elbow like everyone should. :colbert:

I turn my head to avoid sneezing on the person in front of me and end sneezing on a baby.

This if there's no tissue around. I don't actually sneeze up anything usually, so it's a safe maneuver. Which makes me wonder why I needed to sneeze in the first place.

I block my nose as much as possible to stop the sneeze. I don't always succeed though

Also can I just say I saw that sharky posted here and I thought he'd made a thread about his car, which is named Sneezer

When I was in 10th grade I once sneezed with the force of a hurricane. It literally knocked me out of my chair into the wall behind me. Good times.

I had no idea that sneezing into your elbow is a thing. I don't think I've ever seen anyone do this :|

It's "cleaner" because you're not touching things or people with the inside of your elbow. I do the same thing.

Or while having sneezing fits during allergy season I just pray for somebody to hold my head underwater until I stop struggling.

I actually sneeze into my inside elbow or if i'm at work, I reach for a tissue at my desk real quick and sneeze into that.

But yes, I'm quite loud...

I usually try for the crook of the elbow, hands if nothing else.

Yeah, all this elbow stuff is weirding me out. Hey, elbow people? You're weird.

Yeah, avoiding spreading diseases is so weird. Compassion should be a criminal offense.

Though that's pretty hypocritical of me because I always go all out mega loud with maximum noise and speed.

Surely there are better and less weird ways. Like, say, sneezing into a tissue? Or even into your hand, as long as you're not planning on touching lots of stuff before you next wash your hands.

Fynn

Because you always have a tissue on hand. And disinfecting gel, for when you meet someone on the way somewhere and have no access to the bathroom.

Seriously, the logic is rock solid. Who will you touch with your elbow as opposed to the palm of your hand?

EXCUSE ME I THINK YOU ALL FORGOT THE CHAMPION OF SNEEZING

The next time I sneeze I'm gonna try this elbow thing. Though I've become so accustomed to subsiding them that I'll probably forget.

Fynn

I heard that subsiding is actually the worst you can do. An uncle of a friend of mine once held back a huge sneeze and broke his ribs. From the inside.

Bubba

Huh. So I did a little bit of research and you're absolutely right. Subsiding/holding them in is potentially very dangerous.

Apparently it can cause hearing loss, forcing air into the eye or brain, rupture or clotting of blood vessels and like you say... breaking a rib.

Fynn

This is because the sneeze travels at a ridiculously high velocity.

So yeah. Stay safe guys.
