If you open your mouth, the breath with exhale from there rather than the nose, which makes "blowing your nose" into "breathing out of your mouth"

If you need to blow your nose, it means it's blocked up by snot. It will be impossible to get rid of it with your mouth open... Why are you even arguing this? Why am I? I'll just bust out the fails instead.

That's what I do too. Also, from my experience, you have to get on top of the sensors before the perpendicular light changes to yellow in order to activate cheats!

-If you find yourself hitting every red during day time, try and get to the front of the line, then if you accel to ~65 at normal pace and keep at it, you'll be able to make the next light. Not sure if it applies outside of Vancouver

-At night ( I'm not sure when it starts ) on 49th, crossing Knight Street, that light is controlled solely by the sensor so if you have a car infront of you, let him get ahead of you about half a block? and have him activate the light so that when you get there it'll be green . Else if you notice on coming traffic heading to the light, just time it so they get to the sensor first. Off the top of my head, I'd say it takes about 10 seconds for the light to change ( granted that it did not just turn red for you. )

i'd throw some fails your way, but it seems like you've disabled fails on your posts or something, since you've been failed 0 times in 0 posts

You'd be wrong anyway, so no reason to bother trying

I don't know anyone who has blown out their eardrums by not opening their mouth when blowing.. But if you want to insist on it, go for it

^ but only if you block the back of your mouth with your tongue. which is the same damn thing as closing your mouth. when you actually pay attention, if you think about using your nose with your mouth open and tongue out, your body still blocks off the back of your mouth, you should be able to feel this. I just tested all this and I get way less "nose pressure" when I'm sitting like an idiot with my mouth open and tongue out.

So in the end, it's all the same damn thing as you are not going to blow out your eardrums by blowing your nose.

This is very true, at break in period the con rods stretch ever so slightly. This means piston moves towards head a tiny bit more (.001-.004). If the con rod is not fully stretched once the motor is broken in, there is a chance the upper piston ring will break at high RPM's because of colliding with the TDC wear groove left by the piston.

Take a deep breath, close your mouth, plug your nose, and try to breathe out of your nose.

As for keeping your mouth open when exhailing, try clenching your teeth and breathing out of your nostrils, then try to breath out fast = Blowing your nose

As underscore says, your tongue will still block the passage, therefore it's the same as closing of the mouth.

^^^ EXACTLY. Just because your LIPS are parted, doesn't mean you MOUTH IS CLOSED. God damn you guys can be retarded sometimes.

So whether you are making the "MMMMMM" sound (mouth closed with lips) or "NNNN" sound (mouth closed with tip of tongue) or "NG" sound (mouth closed with back of tongue), it's all the same damn thing. You can't blow your nose without doing one of those, and that means your mouth is closed. And you can't pop your fucking eardrums blowing your nose, unless you are retarded.

This thread is already stupid using the stupid "lifehacks" term I hate so much, now it's totally retarded with dumb advice about blowing your nose with your mouth open, and ruining your car during the break-in period.

You're right, I have a strong bias against idiocy. Go ahead and blow your nose with your mouth open. Otherwise, your eardrums may explode!

I guess it doesn't matter though, because 2012 is right around the corner...

definitely doable
the instant you try to have air flow through your nose, the back of your mouth blocks off your mouth to force the air pressure to flow out your nose.

YOU CAN'T BREATHE/BLOW OUT YOUR NOSE WITH YOUR MOUTH *ACTUALLY* OPEN

fuck...

to add onto this, drinking water when your mouth is burning up is counter productive, as it actually spreads the spiciness around your mouth, making it worse

if the only thing available to you is water when your mouth is burning, drink it and keep it in your mouth cavity for a while before swallowing helps. Repeat the process and gradually the spice is lifted off the tongue.

The eardrum blowing up from sneezing is not about opening your mouth. Have you seen people try to sneeze silent. That can cause some damage.

as well, one of the things that is advised that you don't do when you have a ruptured eardrum is blow your nose (i can provide sources if needed)

because i can't find any link between blowing your nose and rupturing your ear drum (aside from furthering the damage), i'm going to go ahead and assume it's a myth. i don't check every single one of my facts before i go ahead and post them, so if you see one that you know isn't true, just post a comment and i'll remove it

like i said, i'm just getting these online, not throwing them out at the top of my head
