    We all know that yawns are infectious. How do you successfully banish a yawn for everyone's sake?

    By yawning. Never refusing one's natural impulse or tendencies, prevents manifestions later on. :smile:

    Tell the mods that the yawn spells American with a K and have them check to see if it is a multiple account of those guys that were here a short time ago with their KKK like rantings.

    I clamp my jaws and try not to make the nostril flare look too obvious.

    Wow, I literally just read something about yawning in a paper. It's something to do with the body warning others and ourselves that sleep is needed for a healthy body.

    How to become a Mormon:

    1. Pray to know that Joseph Smith was a prophet.
    2. Pray to know that the Book of Mormon is true.

    That's all you need to do. Good luck.

    That's obvious.

    I heard that yawing also has to do with the brain not getting enough oxygen. So when I feel yawns coming on I take several deep breaths.

    It's funny how they are contagious. The other day I saw someone in the care behind me yawn after I did. (and they didn't see me, so they did not yawn because of me)

    Just take a deep breath and forge on soon or later the yawn will leave.
