I get the hiccups a lot. So often, in fact, I've developed my own cure for stopping them, almost immediately. I'm what you could call a chronic hiccup-er. Despite what you've heard, curing them has nothing to do with getting scared. Or drinking water. Actually, you don't need anything.
Here's how I do it:
1. Blow out all your air, so hard you push your stomach out. Hold your breath.
2. Swallow three times- while holding your breath
3. Count to 10. 10 long-ish seconds. It kinda hurts.
If they didn't go away, then you're not doing it right. Michael does this incorrectly, hence it doesn't work for him.
I know this video is a bit odd, but that's me.
