I love reading and responding to your comments and as you can tell I’ll jump into the comments section with a reply or a heart quite often. If one of the questions I answered was not detailed enough or you want more info on the subject please let me know so that I can make a dedicated video giving you all of the info!
A few favorite topics from this video are:
1) Holding in your pee
2) Pets licking your face

7) Sneezes stopping your heart
8) Removing stretch marks
9) Doctors with disabilities

  • About this holding your urine... I did this when i was a child. I started doing it in kindergarden and did it until i was 13? I am know 20 and i can tell u what i had as sideeffekts. When i have my period i have 1 or 2 days where i cant hold my urine. That got way better in the last 7 years. At the beginning i had it nearly all the time. I didnt really felt when i needed to go to the toilet. These years of holfing the urine made it way harder for me to have this "sensitivity" And to be able to hold my urine longer i (not willingly/conscious. It just happend over the years) dehxdreated my self. When i am able to drink multiple days in a row 1l or more, that is a huge achievment

  • I've had muscle fatigue before, then at the last p.e I did at school which was stretched and stuff, my legs were weaker after, it said on Google that if you have this then you should go to the doctor but I hoped that I didn't have it but it happened again so I probably should tell my mum or something.

  • Herbal supplements have existed for thousands of years and can be traced over several different cultures. For now. Herbs are now used to cure diabetics, herpes, chronic pain, asthma, Ovarian Cyst and even HIV. I like herbs so much. Most of the time, the injection and the drug are only a loss of duration. I was cured of HIV last year with the use of herbs, I suffered from HIV for 13 years, but with the help of DR. Freeman Osas Herbal Medicine, I was cured in a few weeks of using the herbs he sent me by mail Service Delivery. I don't know the kind of health problem you are facing right now, but I assured you that you will be cured if you contact Dr. Freeman Osas and explain your problem to him, that the issues will resolve in a few weeks , contact Dr. Freeman Osas by his e-mail address: or reach him via WHATSAP number +2349050514983

  • i think that person who says there hand still feels wet after drying them is cause even after u dry them they still have a lil bit of moisture which goes away on its own. and no Dr. Mike you shouldn't drink a lot of water while ur having food. i mean yes if your mouth is burning cause of spice then pls drink some water but not just after every single bite. the theory that i've been told is that when we chew food it's important for the food to mix with saliva that has...... i think a chemical that helps in digestion. i swear i've read about that chemical or digestive juice but i just don't remember the name. okay back at it. so if you keep drinking water while eating it it washes away the saliva and because the salivary gland needs some time to produce ample amount of saliva for the food in your mouth ya eat the food and it doesn't get that digestive juice in it....... so to sum it all up. you shouldn't drink much water while eating cause it washes away the saliva in your mouth that u need, to digest the food. i've probably bluffed a lot so don't mind that and imma lose a mark in my science exam cause i don't remember the name of that digestive chemical or juice or whatever. is it like.......Bile? nah i think the liver releases bile not the salivary gland. ughhhhhhh shoot!!!!!! edit: do NOT try to pronounce mah name ever! not cause i'm rude but cause it's difficult to pronounce, lmao

  • Holding your urine really is a bad idea. I used to be a driver, held urine a lot, and this behavior stretched my bladder permanently. The result is I don't really get that mild feeling of needing to pee sometimes soon. Instead the first signal I get is "You need to go pee NOW!" and if I don't go, the followup is a feeling of being kicked in the stomach.

  • The topic of your video is about holding your pee but sorry you had me at "Are You___?" and I couldn't hold it in when you were answering the person's question "How come when I wash my hands and then dry them they're still wet?" I can't stop laughing and I keep rewatching that part. Thanks, I needed that laugh but Mike "POOR YOU" for the people that you have to deal with every day and how you are able not to come out laughing in their faces I just don't know how you do it??? LOL! I follow Brad Mondo and you came up and I've stopped watching my Photoshop Tutorials, Photography Tutorials, etc. You are so much fun if you'd see my medical record you would run so fast away from me cause I have been sick for 27 plus years with, Cancer, Lupus, Kidney, Peripheral Neuropathy, Brain Tumor, Heart Attack, and the list goes on and on and I'm 52yrs and feel like I'm a 102yrs old. I should be in the "Guinness Book of World Records" LOL! All my Doctors are in Manhattan and I am originally from Bay Ridge, Brooklyn then my Hubby, My 2 Boys & I moved to Staten Island, but one has flown the coop and waiting for the other one LOL! There's also one thing that I do have to mention always go for a 2nd opinion if not even a 3rd opinion cause there are a lot of Quack Doctors out there and I learned that many moons ago, so stay safe cause they are saying Covid-19 is on the rise again.

It's supposed to be a side effect of my meds. But believe me - it's rather a curse than a blessing - I have way more nightmares than you'd think.
