For many years now if I suddenly walk from a warm building to cold outdoor air for a few minutes I will get very queasy for a few minutes. It usually last maybe 5 minutes maximum, usually not even that long. I'll almost always at least feel it some. I good portion of the time I will hack and wretch for a minute or so. A very small but non-zero portion of the time I will actually yack a little bit. It seems to require at least a sudden 30 degree temperature drop to trigger it. So going from 70 degress to 60 won't do it. But 70 to 40 certainly will.
I've tried to google this to see if this effect has some sort of name, but I have found nothing.
Brandy thinks it is all in my head. I think it is a real physical effect.
Has anybody actually heard of this? Anybody else have this?
Sometimes I cough when leaving a building into the cold. Perhaps we were exposed to something at WRCT?
As with the Mountain Dew thing.
Say it with me...
Could we sue CMU? I could use a few million.
Yes, it must have been WRCT. That's it!
Hey, Mountain Dew *HURTS* when you drink too much. It just does!
Millions are always good. Uh... unless it is millions of oozing blisters or something like that.
if you take a penny that's dirty on both sides, lay it flat on a table, and then empty a straw-ful of mountain dew on the side that's facing up, the mountain dew will eat through the dirt on the side facing up and make it shiny again. (as per an experiment done in Taco Bell back in high school). so i believe ya about the dew hurting if you drink too much.
When I drink too much Mountain Dew (say more than a one liter bottle in a 6 hour period) I will start to ache and hurt all over. Not my stomach like I ate something bad, but my whole me. My sholders will hurt, my arms will hurt, everything will just ache. Not "rush me to the hospital" bad or anything, but enough to notice and make you wish you'd stopped after the first bottle of the stuff.
