Ear Irrigation

Posted in Uncategorized by oliverhulland on January 15, 2010

Or the weirdness of having hyper-acute hearing abilities immediately after warm water is shot into your ear at a hundred miles an hour.

I swear I can hear individual hairs talking to each other while my beard sounds like it is screaming as it brushes the fleece on my jacket.

Does the brain help the ear over compensate when it is clogged up? How does that work? Does that mean we could all have super human hearing abilities if we just walked around with cotton balls in our ears most of the time? Taking them out only when we needed to hear somebody whispering under their breath a hundred feet away?
