Can You Keep from Yawning While Watching This? — VIDEO


The ASAP Science guys have posted a couple of new videos about yawning, one of which is a Yawning Contagion Test that you definitely don't want to watch at work after eating a heavy lunch.

Of course, as YouTubers point out, "If anyone has a yawning fetish, this is your video. lol."



Why do we yawn?

  4. Needs more #50.

    I didn't yawn. It was annoying, like a bad version of edging, but then after #20, the urge to yawn almost disappeared. It started to come back again, but then it ended quite pleasantly.

    But I think maybe we've found a new version of porn. Make an all-male version of this.

  5. It also works between species, but only among mammals (although I don't know about whales and dolphins, since that's not how they breathe... maybe they dilate their blowholes).

  7. I didn't yawn at all, because the yawns looked fake to me, rather than genuine. Or perhaps because yawns are more contagious in person?
