    It’s impossible to hum while holding your nose. (You’re trying it aren’t you?) When you hum the air is able to escape through your nose creating the sound, which it obviously can’t do while you are holding it shut.

    My wife hums when she's nervous or scared at the hospital. She also hums when she's board. Two different tunes.

    The last death by firing squad occurred on June 18th, 2010, the same day Toy Story 3 premiered in theaters. In 2004 Utah changed their death sentence laws outlawing death by firing squad, but Ronnie Lee Gardner had been sentenced to death prior to the law change and still had death by firing squad as an option.
