Hiccups can be deadly

Hiccups lead to two deaths
Wed Jan 25, 2006 9:45 AM ET

BOGOTA, Colombia (Reuters) - A Colombian man accidentally shot his nephew to death while trying to cure his hiccups by pointing a revolver at him to scare him, police in the Caribbean port city of Barranquilla said on Tuesday.

After shooting 21-year-old university student David Galvan in the neck, his uncle, Rafael Vargas, 35, was so distraught he turned the gun on himself and committed suicide, police said.

The incident took place on Sunday night while the two were having drinks with neighbors.

Galvan started to hiccup and Vargas, who works as a security guard, said he would use the home remedy for hiccups of scaring him. He pulled out his gun, pointed it at Galvan and it accidentally went off, witnesses told local television.

"They were drinking but they were aware of what was going on," one witness said.

I believe it was an effective cure, yes.

If you've got a splitting headache, I've got a never-fail cure involving a guillotine as well.

Weird. I had a similar situation happen. I pulled my 'gun' out on some chick and it went off right on her neck. Small world.

Afterwards were you so distraught that you blew another load on yourself?

The world record for the longest continuous bout of hiccups goes to Charles Osborne (18941991) from Anthon, Iowa. The hiccups started in 1922 at a rate of 40 times per minute, slowing to 20 and eventually stopping in February 1990 a total of 68 years. [2]

I think I would've tried the Colombian hiccup cure somewhere around year 20.

My father was somewhat of a freak about hiccups. If any of us hiccuped more than five times, he'd threaten us with bodily damage. Hence, we can all stop hiccups before the fifth time.

99% of the time I have one and then it's over. Maybe 5 or 6 times in my life has it gone past one.

I used to get hiccups for hours at a time. But now I have the perfect cure.

Take ten sips of water, then a big ten second gulp. Works everytime. I alteast find it more tolerable than taking a bullet in the chest.
