left ear, went POP!
so, back to living life is stereo.. YAY :-)
funny tho', with silly situations like these.. I end up taking more notice with the weird quirks of my system, and attempt to find ways to study and hone these various quirks for fun n profit... as if I'm always assuming I'm actually alien to this human vessel.. and still haven't quite fully figured the limits to it's operation.. mostly it's just wikki wikki shit with the brain, but sometimes.. in moments like these, I come to focus on the ears..
for instance.. normally, I can pop my ears at will.. by simply triggering these funny little ear muscles.. I dunno if they actually move my ears externally, but they seem well capable to tweak around with the tiny bones inside.. flick 'em around a few times.. and you get better hearing reception.. kinda similar to the same sorta muscle control people use to flare their nostrils.. one of them funny throwbacks to our mammalian ancestors..
of course, with a nasty case of the flu.. this ability wuz rendered null n void..
so, more brutal methods - the "hold your nose / blow / blow out your ears" quite a drastic measure too, you keep hearing of horror stories involving people blowing out their eardrums..
to think.. if you didn't have eardrums.. could you actually breath in thru your ears?
I'm probably not making much sense here..
but I find this shit quite fascinating..
thank gawd I can hear in stereo tho'..
any longer in mono.. and I'd go totally bonkers..
