Bright Light = Achoo?

Slashdot did a poll that introduced me to a condition known as the "photic sneeze reflex", a real affliction that causes people to suddenly sneeze when exposed to bright light. Apparently nobody really knows what causes it, but it affects between one-sixth to one-quarter of all people.

Maybe that's why I sneeze my head off sometimes. Never even thought to look for a pattern.

I think I prefer the term photosynthesneeze myself.
