Some of us have ear wax and other issues with
accompanying pain, lumpen-ness, that sense of actually being underwater
and a ringing in the ears that I have convinced myself is because
hearing apparatus is too close to vessels supplying blood to the head.
Not an attractive subject, but worth addressing because it provides an
opportunity to again raise the matter of yet one more design flaw in the
species I belong to.
If we were made by an all
knowing brilliance, it would have given us ear canals that traveled north
toward an eardrum and Eustachian tube in the top of the head, instead of
these questionable organs being placed directly beside the main arteries
which pump an increasingly unnecessary quantity of blood to the brain.
And don't tell me it's yet one more 'mysterious way.' Just tell
me where the 'off switch' is located.
