When you were a kid, one of your friends probably told you that if you sneezed with your eyes open, your eyeballs would pop out of your head. But that can’t really happen… right?

We don’t show any images of actual eyes popped out of sockets in this episode. But the sources contain many if you really want to see.

Hosted by: Hank Green
