    i heard there was a belief that your soul can fly out when you sneeze or something like that

    This is actually a difficult area for me. On one hand, I cannot do it naturally. On the other, I fear that this has the side-effect of giving the impression of being impolite. I try dearly to remain cordial and well-mannered with people, but I can rarely muster the willpower to conform to this quirky ritual, the sneeze blessing. The awkward silence following the sneeze of a peer is truly one of the worst parts of my day-to-day life.

    And yet, I feel sincere gratitude when others bless me.

    I don't really bother, or care. If they're rude about sneezing (like they don't cover their mouth) I'll say "excuse you" if someone says it to me I don't get bent out of shape. At worst I'll give a semi-snarky "no thanks" which usually confuses them.

    it's one of those sayings that people don't really think about when they say it, so it just keeps being repeated and passed down and everyone does it. A crazy SJ's wet dream

    I'm guilty of saying it to be polite, I know it shouldn't matter but I tried to stop saying it like a few months ago just because I'm a rebel without a cause.

    In the Netherlands we say "Gezondheid", which actually means "Health", just like Gesundheit. So you can shout "HEALTH!" instead when you don't want to say "bless you", but I know, it sounds weird. My mother is Hungarian and there they say "Egéségedre", which means "To your health". That sounds good, I think.
    I was sitting outside the classroom waiting to go in, and I saw an airplane hit the tower. The TV was obviously on. I used to fly myself and I said, "There's one terrible pilot."

    If you don't agree about my MBTI type, you can complain about it here. I've had plenty of people telling me I'm something else, in my reputation box. That's annoying.
