The Logic Behind A Sneeze

I sneezed and my nose got blocked as it somehow always does. So I turned to Mee and asked, "Why does my nose get blocked after I sneeze?" She couldn't give me an answer. Can you guys? Cos technically, a sneeze clears the tubes, right? So how come mine always get clogged after a speedy 150km per hour clearing?

Huh? Your nose gets blocked? Nope never had that problem unless I have a cold/flu; probably you might wanna ask your doctor?

Ooo Ooo, Here's something for you to try, see whether you can sneeze while keeping your eyes open =P

Because when you sneeze, you actually clear your channels through your mouth.

Try sneezing exclusively through your nose and you risk rupturing your ear drums.

I sneeze every morning. And in my case, my nose will run a few kms per hour for a good few minutes T_T

Hahaha, I don't think anyone can sneeze with their eyes open... But I sure hope you'll get by your nose-block-after-a-good-sneeze =D
