Lehpron, it IS a talent. Anyone can burb, yes. But not everyone can wake neighbors up. The burning sensation is caused in the epinorphis. This is the same area of the nose that burns when you get water up your nose when swimming. Carbonation bubbles burst in the stomach as a result of contact with stomach acid (its like shaking up a the soda, but 5x more). The resulting gas has residual bicabonate reactions that create a vapor called trisolmotane. This irritates the lining in the nasal cavity and caused acute inflamation.
