So, apparently, sneezing with your eyes open won't make your eyeballs pop out in spectacularly gruesome fashion.

Lee Mack and this week's guests - Kathy Burke (Walking & Talking), Sanjeev Bhaskar (The Kumars) and John Hannah (A Touch of Cloth) - put that urban myth to bed, before assembling a hovercraft from household items.

Plus, find out if the average human produces 1.43 pints of sweat a day (obviously buckets more when there is a tube strike), and whether or not people act drunk if they believe they've guzzled alcohol.
