Three questions that keep me up at night

1. Why do I always start sneezing whenever I pluck my eyebrows?

2. Why is SAA still serving Vito Palazzolo mineral water?

3. Why does Graeme Smith so often put the other team in to bat? It only makes it worse on the rare occasion that it´s the correct decision, as this lets him justify all the other times when it´s so obviously the wrong one.

Whosoever can answer any of these burning questions shall be the recipient of my eternal gratitude!

Who knows. I don't really have answers; just trying to boost my comment-count. I guess I'm spamming. To avoid that accusation, I will surmise that the answer to 2 may be linked to massive stock buys when there may have been people connected from the one to the other?

Fair enough point about 2. CM has promised to reveal the answer to 1. Do you have any idea about 3?

i can answer your question about eyebrow plucking....
the pain makes ones eyes water (that is perhaps to be explained still) and thus the water runs into your tear ducts and into your nose...causing you to sneeze

Thanks for the enlightenment!

I have a question related to your eyebrow plucking one. Why does my nose run every time I eat a big meal? I can't seem to get through a full plate of food without needing to blow my nose. The only theory I have thus far is that it's a form of ongoing salivation which cannot be achieved by my mouth because it is otherwise occupied.

I also sneeze when I pluck my eyebrows! My theory is that your facial nerves are connected, so when you pull on the hair and it hurts a bit, the tingle spreads via the nerve network into your nose and makes it tickle (a bit like when a dentist drills you and you feel a slight tingle just outside of where the numbness ends).

Harry, do you by any chance drench your food in chilli?

Marelise, I think I like your theory more than CM´s!
