FoonFlake: Coining the term "solar sneeze" alone makes this line of inquiry worthwhile...
miss diminutive: Does anyone else derive serious pleasure from sneezing or am just some kind of freak? A good solid sneeze makes me get all lightheaded and tingly afterwards. If it wasn't for the high probability of boogers flying out of my face, I'd force myself to sneeze all the time.

cgraves67: Photic sneeze response is common in my family. My mom does it, I do it, and my kids do it.
TerminalEchoes: Staring at a light isn't what makes you sneeze. It's the act of looking up at the light that makes you sneeze. At least that's what an old science teacher told me, so I tried it and it worked.

At least that's what an old science teacher told me, so I tried it and it worked.I sneeze just from walking from a dark area to a bright one. I can be looking at the floor and it still happens.
phaseolus: Anyone else have a peppermint-triggered sneeze reflex, or am I just a weirdo?
dixchigme: i've been doing this photic sneezing thing for ever!!! it's a blessing and a curse!!
Unoriginal_Username: cgraves67: Photic sneeze response is common in my family. My mom does it, I do it, and my kids do it.My wife and kids do it. The first time I had ever even heard of someone sneezing due to the sun was when I met my wife. I find it funny that as soon as we go outside, they all sneeze, in order it seems.She doesn't find it as humorous as I do.
Pawprint: Argh, just noticed this in TFA: Not a bad hypothesize.Argh.
T-Servo: Used to happen to me as a little kid, and I remember asking my mom about it. Her response at the time was disappointing- I don't care if that was 1976./her responses about the movie Black Hole were likewise lacking
