Japanese say that sneezing means someone is talking to you… Thankfully we are Jewish and no Japanese.March 12, 2012 2:18 am at 2:18 am #859261WolfishMusingsParticipant
Silly me… I thought that a hiccup meant that your diaphragm was twitching. If I believe that, that means it’s likely to be apikorsus — so don’t believe it.

Someone should check Snopes to see if this is just an urban legend.
Anyways, just hold you’re breath for a few seconds when you hiccup.March 12, 2012 2:44 am at 2:44 am #859263skiaddictMember
ha my teacher used to tell us to hold our breath for 20 minutes so we wouldnt hiccup again!March 12, 2012 2:51 am at 2:51 am #859264avi eParticipant
I always heard that it was that if your ears tingled, then someone was talking about us. I think that this was invented to discourage kids from saying lashon hora, so that they would think that the person about whom they were speaking would know.March 12, 2012 2:01 pm at 2:01 pm #859265No One Mourns The WickedMember
“ha my teacher used to tell us to hold our breath for 20 minutes so we wouldnt hiccup again!”
Hold your breath for 20 minutes & let me know how that works out for you…March 12, 2012 5:03 pm at 5:03 pm #859266BTGuyParticipant
How would the hiccup know someone was talking about you? I dont think this is true.March 12, 2012 5:20 pm at 5:20 pm #859267HealthParticipant
No One Mourns The Wicked -Your post reminds me of all these parents who coming running to the doc if a kid holds their breath or spoil their child- lest the kid holds their breath.
Wake up -you can’t die by holding your own breath. You might pass out, but then you start to breathe again. Don’t fall for this manipulation.March 12, 2012 6:32 pm at 6:32 pm #859268nitpickerParticipant
It certainly is not an URBAN LEGEND.
That phrase has a specific meaning. more and more lately
I hear see it used as a synonym for “myth” or “false”.
Worse, it has spawned a new meaningless phrase URBAN MYTH.
Pity.March 12, 2012 6:49 pm at 6:49 pm #859269mewhoParticipant
