When the doctor is going to give you an injection, cough as the needle is going in and you will suffer less pain. According to the British Medical ­Journal, the act of coughing causes a sudden, temporary rise in pressure in the chest, hindering the pain-conducting work of the spinal cord and leading to pain-free injections.

Once you fall asleep, your subconscious will conjure your symbol, and once your symbol appears, that will give you the mark that you can now do whatever you want.
