The man who could breath through his eyes

    Yesterday I saw the amazing act of a man "who could breath through his
    eyes", a variety act in the 'festival of fools' circus this year.
    Well, he wasn't really breathing through his eyes, it appeared to me
    that he was expiring air from the nasal cavity through his tear ducts.
    After inhaling above water, he descended in a bath, face up. Without
    much effort he produced a stream of small air bubbles from the inner
    corner of each eye. A few milliliters of air all together, I guess. He
    had developed this 'talent' as a child, when he discovered he was able
    to produce a hissing noise (not in bath, in the open air).

    Is that possible, expiring some air through the tear duct, is it such
    a soft channel? A strange thing is, the air did not escape from his
    nostrils.
