Headaches, three headed watch dogs, and the evolution of such. [Oct. 15th, 2008|11:39 pm]

According to Greek mythology, the three-headed watchdog Cerberus was said to guard the entrance to Hades. Although it was sometimes said to have as many as a hundred heads, most accounts describe Cerberus as having only three heads and the tail of a serpent. The center head was that of a lion, and the other two resembled a dog and a wolf. Cerberus was the offspring of the giant Typhon and Echidna, a monstrous snakelike creature. Heracles temporarily brought Cerberus to the upper world as the last of his Twelve Labors.

And a human evolution animation.

Also off topic.. who here has had a headache that won't go away in the last couple of weeks? Like 90% of the people I know have had ongoing headaches.

I'm wondering if something was released into the air.. minor chemical/biological warfare in the form of terrible terrible headaches.

Am I paranoid?

Methinks it's the wildfires (if you're in the Southern California area) We've been having them for like a week straight in different areas already. Also, it's unseasonably warm over here and it keeps shifting from hot to cold for no reason.

Can anyone say THE HAPPENING??? LOL harhar

I haven't seen The Happening, and I'm not in Cali, so no answer there. :(

Headaches? Personally, I think it's all the political advertisements.

Yes, you're paranoid. I think it's just the changing of the seasons.

In one of the Greek stories I read, when the eyes of the hundred heads of Cerebrus were closed (bored by stories told by our Greek hero masquerading as a shepherd in order to gain access to Hades) they were placed in the tail of the peacock, never to close again.

Was that Cerberus? I thought it was a creature with just one head, but 100 eyes on that head? I can't remember its name, but I do remember the multiple eyes thing ...

Of course, it could also be one of those stories with multiple versions, so who knows?

My wife is prone to migraines and she has had one fairly ongoing for a few weeks, coming up every few days.

Not sure if you are paranoid, not sure if they released anything in the air, but if they did, it would have to be major to affect so many people... as for me, I have had a low grade headache all day.

Funny you should mention headaches. I've had one for almost a week, now, and I'm inside with filtered air and the fires are not that close. This also is migraine off and on because I'm nauseated, periodically confused, (what's new with that?), and keep seeing flashing lights and hearing the usual noises I get with auras when I get migraines. Something is triggering them tho. I haven't cycled like this with them for years.

The change in seasons, temperatures, and relative humidity over teh past month has been wreaking havoc with sinuses and allergies for most people.
Sinus headaches are my least favorite, and I has thems.

Sometimes a change in pressure can cause headaches. I think we had a high pressure system just roll through most of the country.

My roommate has been getting several migraines for the last few weeks, too. Fortunately, I'm not one to really get headaches, so I've been fine.

Glad to hear you haven't been feeling ill. That's good to know though, I wasn't aware of the pressure systems being part of it.

sometimes I wonder if there is some headache conspiracy. I always seem to have one kind or another.

that happened to me last month. It wasn't so much that it didn't go away as it kept recurring like every other day and i thought i was dying. hahaha.

I think its more that we are just living in really tough times right now. Really really tough ;(

i wonder what a wink face is with a sad mouth --> ;) No one winks when they're sad. Maybe I should call that face the Sarah Palin. Because she doesnt smile when she winks, she just winks, and when she winks it makes me sad...interesting...

I don't remember the last time since about 5 years ago when I didn't have a headache to some degree . . . but it has been worse lately.

I hope it's just my sinuses acting crazy. Allergies+pollution=pain.

I'm sorry you're having headaches, though!

i attributed my headaches to stress... wisdom teeth, weaning, crib sleeping...

i am in cali, but nowhere near any smoke...

:shrug: it could be political things... they are really ridiculous.

I've noticed some people are more sensative to the change of seasons, and just weather in general. I personaly am akin to a barometer, and can tell you in the morning if it'll rain in the afternoon by how my head feels. Bad storms, especialy snow storms beat the hell out of me
