When I was a little girl, one of the urban legends I heard again and again was about this guy who had the hiccups for his whole life. He tried everything to get rid of them, but he couldn't ever shake 'em. Then, on the day he finally stopped hiccuping, he died.
I think the moral of this story is that hiccups save lives.
