So I bent my head backwards while sucking on a sore throat pill (or whatever they are called). It almost fell into my throat but thank God it didn't.
Anyway, I'm currently practicing the heimlich maneuver on myself so I can do it on myself or someone else if there ever is a need.
Here's a video:
I can't really do it with a chair of table (It's just hard for some reason) but when I bend my back forward and slam my right fist with both my arms into my stomach, with some adjustments, I get a what I think is the desired effect.
The images attached to this op is the typical hilarious standard fair but they don't reflect how I feel at all. I have a strong imagination and empathy so after this happened I was basically bombarded by visions of how close death I was and how people could suffer such a horrible death just because they laughed while eating and got unlucky.
Also, (mane)uver. Heh heh but yeah I'm still in shock.
