    Japanese say that sneezing means someone is talking to you… Thankfully we are Jewish and no Japanese.

    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.

    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.

    Hold your breath for 20 minutes & let me know how that works out for you…

    How would the hiccup know someone was talking about you? I dont think this is true.

    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.

    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.
