Dear 100 Hour Board,
Why is it that when you break your nose you get two huge black eyes that look like you've been insulting the rugby, lacrosse and hockey teams all at the same time?

- Ouch!

A: Dear Ouch,

When you break your nose, you also break blood vessels. Blood escapes the vessels, causing bruises that are the "black eye" look.
