I know this isn't a particulrly scientific question, but I am curious whether the urban myths that when you sneeze with your eyes open, your eyeballs pop out is true. I know it isn't going to happen normally, because it's a reflex action, but you could hold someone's eyes open....but that would be a very crazy experiment, and I'd probably get arrested

I read this too in one of the romanian "science" magazines. But they don't believe everything you read..

No. I tried it many years ago. Nothing happened. My eyes are still in their places. :)
It matters not how strait the gate
How charged with punishment the scroll
I am the Master of my fate
I am the Captain of my soul.
