Reading This Will Make You Yawn.
    #1988235 - 10/07/03 10:43 PM (13 years, 2 months ago)

Sometimes, even thinking about yawning will make you yawn. And when the person next to you does it, forget about it -- you'll yawn, too. With all this talk about yawning, in fact, you've probably already yawned.

"A yawn is an instinctive behavior: You don't have to learn to do it, and yawns are even present before birth," says Robert Provine, a professor of psychology and neuroscience at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County.

Is the myth that yawns are actually contagious true?

"When one person in a group yawns, over half of the people in the group will yawn within five minutes, and the rest will at least be tempted to yawn," says Provine, who has been researching yawning for more than 20 years. "What is surprising is that virtually anything having to do with yawning triggers a contagious reaction."

Provine explains that while yawning is highly contagious, so are other human behaviors, like laughter, and this reaction is actually very normal -- and ancient.

I stole this from some where and I'm too lazy to post the source.
Im such a criminal.

Humans are animals of imitation, on deeper levels than we realize most of the time. Btw, I yawned!

What I'd like to know...What exactly IS the purpose of yawning? Like...Why the fuck do I do it?

Hiccups too...Hiccups PISS me off, and I cant see that they serve any fucking purpose, except TO piss me off...

After one comes, through contact with it's administrators, no longer to cherish greatly the law as a remedy in abuses, then the bottle becomes a sovereign means of direct action.  If you cannot throw it at least you can always drink out of it.  - Ernest Hemingway

If it is life that you feel you are missing I can tell you where to find it.  In the law courts, in business, in government.  There is nothing occurring in the streets. Nothing but a dumbshow composed of the helpless and the impotent.    -Cormac MacCarthy

He who learns must suffer. And even in our sleep pain that cannot forget falls drop by drop upon the heart, and in our own despair, against our will, comes wisdom to us by the awful grace of God.  - Aeschylus

LoL, for real though.  I thought I wouldn't let it happen when I clicked on the thread, but as I kept reading through the first post... the first one hit me.  There goes another one right now, which brings my personal tally for this thread alone to (o wait  :eyemouth: there's another one).  Shit, I'm starting to lose count :spliff:

I'm pretty sure I yawned about five or six times in the span of a couple minutes  :print:

My $ says the longer this thread gets, the more effective it will be  :wink:

and a lucky-7 yawn for the closer :cool:
