    Let me just say, this would work as a method of torture against terrorists.

    I had a Q-tip just inside my ear yesterday while walking through my living room, and then I accidentally stumbled slightly. Didn't fall, but the Q-tip got pushed in real deep. Felt like someone had taken a sharp pin or needle and jabbed it in. Pulled the Q-tip out, blood on the end of it. Fucking irritated me for the rest of the day, but when I tried to lay down in bed last night, it just throbbed and leaked some kind of watery fluid. And I estimate my hearing in that ear right now is at about 20%.

    "Reliable" medical websites say it will take several weeks to heal and for my hearing to return to 100%. That's if it doesn't become infected.

    The moral of the story is: Don't walk and try to clean your ears with a Q-tip at the same time. I'll just post a pic below to save you the trouble.

    Don't clean your ears with anything smaller than your elbow. Didn't you ever hear that??

    q-tips are the biggest cause of ear infections there is...maybe you should log-off your computer and go see a doctor...you can't get antibiotics through your monitor..
