    I think we've talked about the sneezing thing before. After I stopped being religious I slowly shifted to saying "bless you" after a sneeze instead of "God bless you" but then even stopped the former after people still took it religiously and responded along those lines and it creeped me out. Now I say "gesundheit" or "what the fuck is wrong with you do you want to get everyone sick you filthy bastard".

    I'm not going to argue with someone who says "bless you" or whatever but I'm also not going to be the one to bring religion into things.

    A person who gets offended when someone reacts to a sneeze with a bless you is an asshole in the purest sense.

    I knew a really religious person that used to say that it was blasphemous to just say God bless you or bless you bc it implied that you were demanding a blessing. Apparently it should be said as "May god bless you." I just say gazoontite. It's just a wishing of good health, an fun to say.

    claiming "bless you" is too demanding of God is more douchey than an atheist complaining about being blessed.


    I don't bother acknowledging it at all, and ideally prefer to not have anyone make awkward comments about mine. If someone thinks it's impolite for a random person to not go out of their way to comment on a common bodily function then they should examine what kind of asshole they themselves are first.

    but you'd probably admit his point that "gazoontite" is more fun to say.

    In my dream last night, Robin and I were at a bar discussing Global Climate Change and the desertification of America's arable land. We both agreed we were pretty much fucked and drank arm in arm to life aboard a sinking ship. Then I remembered he was dead, which I found more disturbing than the topic at hand, and subsequently booted myself out of the dream. This is all very disheartening, I honestly would rather he had overdosed. Then perhaps he might not have suffered as much leading up to his death.

    Regardless, I'm happy and eternally grateful for the merriment and joy he brought into my world and feel very fortunate to have seen him perform in SF at Bimbo's in 2008. He was my favorite and will be sorely missed.

So in the original usage of the term, the wish wasn't directly to the deceased body, but to God. But Tom's right, there is a superstitious element to it, particularly if you don't believe in the Roman Catholic doctrine of purgatory.

    But it's not as if most people know or care about the etymology of the phrase, and it's really become a sort of stand-in signifier for an expression of grief or condolences or sadness or respect or whatever compels someone to acknowledge the loss of another's life.
    Having attended scores of Catholic graveside services, I can attest to this. The final words uttered by the priest/deacon go something like this...."May the soul of (insert deceased here) and the souls of all the faithful departed through the mercy of God, rest in peace." All the old people ( in the know) utter the last three words with the the celebrant.

    So it's a soul thing, not a rotting flesh thing.

    No, there's definitely an 'H' in the pronunciation of, gesundheit. The 'H' is pronounced when it is followed by a full vowel. Bunch of non-German speakers up in here.



    Edit:

    And who the fuck would have thought a thread in memoriam of Robin Williams would turn into such a clusterfuck.

    The Parkinsons news makes this more understandable. Take the soul-crushing depression and heap on the end of your career and the dread of deteriorating into a pity case. That's maybe too much to bear for most folks.

    Yep, especially considering he apparently used jogging and biking to help ease his depression symptoms.
