Answer that phone in my brain!

I was trolling around the web and found this little interesting tidbit of info that I never knew:
Tinnitus (often called ringing in the ears, though it can be a variety of sounds, volumes, and patterns) is noise produced within the ear rather than noise originating from the environment outside. Sometimes it is only internal -- no one else can hear it -- but there are types of tinnitus that others can actually hear.

How weird is that. So I'll mark this down along with the fact that rabbits eat their own shit well their own cecotrophes. I never knew either of those things.

  1. There is no cure for Tinnitus, and it can drive you crazy over time. William Shatner has it, and Pete Townshend from The Who. I don't know how I remembered that. Just a bit of useless information sitting around in my brain.

  2. I've heard something like "white noise" can help. that and the continuous barking of dogs has a profound effect on it as well.
