Strange connections

Categories: ,
When I tinker with my eyes, as in when I am trying to put on contact lenses, specially when it takes longer than usual and my eyes become watery, why does my nose start running too?

Why do I cough when digging in my ear using an ear stick?

Why does sneezing makes me momentarily deaf?

Why are there such strange connections between two unrelated parts of the body? What are other examples?

Edit 30/04/2010: See comments for some asnwers.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nasolacrimal_duct explains 1.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eustachian_tube explains 2 and 3.

1. Biking up a hill - even though it's the legs that do the work, the rest of the body gets tense.

2. The jaw clenches and gets involved when you're trying to unscrew/screw/cut something and it is not easy.

@Giddu: Brilliant! Didn't fully understand 2nd article though.
@Amit: 1. That's probably because body has to be stiff to maintain balance. 2. Good one!
