There's only one way to cure hiccups

Submitted by Frank

By compressing the skin over the ear canal firmly for at least 10 seconds. This will cut off the circulation of the nerve that causes the closing of the glottis. This was shown on the television around 10 years ago.

Thats amazing Comments By: Ari on 2008-03-07
So i was very skeptical, and i tried another method of pushing the area above the upper lip, but this worked from the second I tried it. I pushed both flaps of my ear over the hole and pushed hard for like 20 seconds, not one hiccup after..... amazing technique.

Thanks Comments By: Mike on 2008-06-01
I tried about 1/2 dozen cures I know and they didn't work but yours did. I didn't feel like baking soda and water or peanut butter, but those were the next options. Your solution took almost two minutes but when I pressed harder the hiccups were gone in about three seconds.
