Why is there blood in my ear? [Jul. 20th, 2008|12:45 am]

Jesse James took great delight in his notoriety and once went so far as to write his own press release for one of his robberies and hand it to the engineer of the train he was robbing before riding away with his men. This press release, entitled "A true account of this present affair", stated: "The most daring robbery on record. The southbound train on the Iron Mountain Railroad was stopped here this evening by five heavily armed men and robbed of ____ dollars... The robbers were all large men, none of them under six feet tall. They were masked, and started in a southerly direction after they had robbed the train, all mounted on fine-blooded horses. There is a hell of an excitement in this part of the country!"

Use a wash cloth, but you're not supposed to put q-tips in your ears. I say this, but I use q-tips. . . so

I've heard ear candles are the way to go.

I usually use cotton swabs dipped in hydrogen peroxide (wet tip first to break things up, then the dry tip to dry it out & clear out the broken-up wax). I try to rotate, rather than scrape (as I've heard pushing too hard can cause ear infections).

My fiancée has recommended using ear candles (or ear coning) to naturally and safely remove excess ear wax. I'm tempted to try it to see how well it will work... so far, checking it out on Wikipedia does make me pause to think, though. This article looked interesting, though...

Re: I've heard ear candles are the way to go.

But how exactly do you light them? And how long should they burn?

Re: *shrug*

I was being flip.

At least I hope they don't involve lighting flames within one's ear cavities!

I've heard positives and negatives about ear candling but I'm willing to try it regardless! Thank you for the info. :) I like your q-tip plan too. :) May try that as well.

Re: I've heard ear candles are the way to go.

I've heard that is you take water, add a small amount of peroxide and then poor it into your ear it will clean out the wax. I've never tried it though. I heard if you use straight peroxide it can damage your ears.

My grandmother lived a couple of ranches over from the James family. She had some horror tales to tell. She hated them and was terrified by them when she was young.

Eeep. I certainly wasn't trying to glorify crime, I just thought as far as criminals go that was somewhat clever.

Haha, i wanna write my own account of something that would get in the paper!

"The robbers were all large men, none of them under six feet tall." ...It'd be great if they were all short-ish... it'd throw off the coppers!

Were the people at the paper smart enough to fill in the blank? :)
