    Some of these are just plain wrong. Most hummingbirds weigh well over a penny. Only the smallest species come close. Our office buildin has 4 large copiers that go down once or twice a montk, and it has NEVER been attiributed to the act described. It is physically impossible for sneezing to pop you eye out unless it has been severely damaged already. As far as licking the elbow, I bet Gene Simmons can do it.
