    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.

    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?

    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.

    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.

    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.

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

    So yeah. Stay safe guys.
