    this is going around, have not snoped it yet, it looks like a good idea to me, do you think it works?

    no snopes allowed yet;

    my guess is it works (goes to snopes after posting guess)

    If it comes to you via email it's 99.999999999% false usually. :) If it's health related it's most certainly 100%.

    that's an interesting snopes, it decides "false" at the top but then goes on to say it is in fact true

    "true" if done correctly, but could possibly turn a mild heart attack into severe

    I am going with "possibly true", this is definately not "false"

    clearly, if you think you are going to faint this is the right proceedure, if you think you can remain awake it is not the right proceedure

    I've never fainted but I know those who have and very few have said that they could feel it coming. So I don't know how you'd have the capacity to know it was coming and perform this. I think that's why it was called fake, too many variables for it to be a consistent life saving measure.

    I see that was post number 12k. Grats to you sir! I'd give you rep on the number but as per usual I have to spread it around first.
