There are actions which comes out unconsciously such as sneeze, hiccups or convulsion. These actions are not connected to own motivation but influence from outside of body. They come out suddenly and fades away silently.

People made a legend to avoid from these disease. For example of hiccup, “one said to surprise him”, “one said drink a water from other side of glass” or “stop breathing for 1 minute”.

Who knows where this rumour came from, but it pulls a line to a legend. Rumour can be a Lie, but spread this rumour obtain a truth inside.
