    If you sneeze and fart at the same time, they fully cancel each other out, so that’s the way to go.

    Harmless? Tell you what. You come over here and let me make you a batch of my “Chili of 3s” to eat and wait a few hours. Tell me farts are harmless after that.

    More to the point, why is it that of all the bodily functions you listed, only one by social contract puts an obligation on the other party? If I fart, burp, or hiccup, I’m the one to say “excuse me”. If I cough, no one needs say anything. If I sneeze, however, somehow it’s now incumbent on YOU to offer some acknowledgement?

    Fucked up, that.
