Hiccups always seem to come at the worst time, don’t they? There’s actually a reason for that. Emotions and emotional situations are actually known to be precursors to hiccups. That means when you’re nervous or excited, the chances of getting a bout of hiccups is increased.Hiccups also can happen when gulping air, water or food too quickly. People are also more prone to hiccups when bellies are full, particularly overfull stomachs at all-you-can-eat buffets or back yard barbecue bonanzas.

The problem isn’t getting hiccups, but rather the fact that they are unpredictable. It’s hard to get rid of them!

How to Choose a Perfume or Cologne to Attract a Partner

Why Humans Wear Perfume: Pheromones and Fragrances

All human beings secrete pheromones, which are chemical scents that our bodies produce, specifically for attracting other humans.
