It is impossible to sneeze with your eyes open.

that's it!

i think it has to do with the amount of air-pressure that blasts through the head. i don't usually think it's enough to pop the eyes out, but it doesn't sound like a fun experiment either :).

But who knows? Maybe your eyeballs get a pressure. :)

I don't recommend plugging your nose when you sneeze either - that's not fun

Why do So many people do that!?! I see people do it and I justshake my head.

I know a lot of people hate sneezing but I actually think it feels good.

You really should consider writing disclaimers on some of this shit. People are dumb and eyeballs will be lost.

Be it on your head, randomposting.

I try to do this when I'm driving... Overall, I think it makes the whole thing worse and I'm probably more likely to crash if I attempt to keep my eyes open.

Damn spring and pollen.

Urgh. Yeah. Just letcha self sneeze. Either do that, or use some peppermint extractunder your nose. Should clear it up.

No. Nothing happens. It's just a common myth that you can't - it is, however, very, very hard (though certainly not unheard-of.) The reason that your eyes close reflexively is because the nerves serving the eyes and the nose are closely intertwined (that's also how you get photic sneezes - when you sneeze in bright sunlight.) It gives the impression that your eyes are closing to protect themselves from something, but they're not.
And stuff.
*hums*
