What the hell just fell out of my ear?

sorabji.com: What are you afraid of?: What the hell just fell out of my ear?

By My Amazing Inner Ear on Wednesday, January 9, 2002 - 05:15 pm:

    Last week, I took a trip to the mountains, and felt alot of pressure in my right ear. I couldn't "pop" it by yawning, or blowing my nose, and it bothered me (a little) the whole time I was up there. Once we came back down, the pressure feeling subsided and I forgot about it. Yesterday, my right ear felt itchy inside, and when I rubbed it, It felt like i had crinkly paper inside. About an hour ago, I was sitting here typing away, and I felt somthing fall OUT of my ear canal, and into that my outer ear. I tilted my head, and I was absolutely shocked when this HUGE chunk of crusty crap fell out onto my lap. It looks like the ENTIRE surface of my inner ear sloughed off. It is white and yellow, scaly and really big. I couldn't believe it! I went to the first aid box, and found a q-tip, and went to the bathroom to see if there was anymore in there, but it seems like whatever it was came out in one complete chunk! It is still sitting here on my desk. It's fascinating,and really kind of gross. I can't tell any of my co-workers, because its the kind of thing that they would talk about behind my back. I'm going to put it into some sort of container and show it to my boyfriend when I get home. For some reason, I can't wait!

    oh my god that is utterly nasty.

    Try using vinagar and rubbing alcohol in a 50 50 mix.

    A couple of drops in each ear. Really cleans them out. I got this from my Ear Nose and Throat specialist.

    It works.

    Holy shit that is totally freakin nasty.

    dump some peroxide in those beasts and bubble all that shit out.

    That could be like a chunk of your brain or something. Good Lord.

    I think Steven King might pay good money for that chunk to use it in a movie.

    Earwax. Warm water and squeeze bulb will clear that up. If that ain't enough, your local drug store will have some drops that'll loosen it up a bit.

    I'm a tad overdue for some wax blasting myself.

By Czarina on Thursday, January 10, 2002 - 08:24 am:

    The ear,nose and throat specialists, use water pics to irrigate the ear canal.

    Warm water and a little peroxide,and keep the setting low,[so you don't blast your eardrum into oblivion].

    Its probably safest if you have two people involved in this treatment.The one with the nasty ears is the recipient,and I guess you could dub the other one the extraction expert.Easiest and less mess if you hold a big bowl and towel under the ear.

    I'm glad I didn't have to see that thing that came out of that girls ear.Her description was rather graphic.I think Dani might be right.It sounds like the stuff horror movies are made of.

    Maybe you could keep it on your mantle,and whenever children come over,show it to them and watch the horror on their faces,when you tell them the details of your ghastly experience.

    Water pics are also good for irrigating the sinus cavities.

    I'm really busy at work already, but I had to tell you guys that I surprised my boyfriend with my ear treasure last night. As I mentioned I had it in a Toy bubble, so when he came over I had it on the coffee table. I didn't say anything, because I knew that he would get curious and look. I was in the kitchen when I heard him ask "What the hell is in this plastic thing?". I asked him to guess. He said it looked like bread, or pastry. By this point, he had dumped it in his palm and it was rolling around. I told him to put it back in the container before I would tell him what it was. When I did tell him, the look on his face almost made me pee. He threw the bubble across the room, and it hit the wall, and my ear treasure fell out. It's so big, I could easily see it on the floor from over 10 feet away! My cat wanted in on the action, so I put it back in the bubble and let her smack it around for a while. The BF crowed about this all night.."I can't believe you! Why did you keep it?! Why are you STILL keeping it??!". I really don't know why. I left it at home today on top of the TV.

    It's a part of you that you just can't let go.

    That sentence can be a lyric in a cheesy love song or a description of a sick earwax obsession.

By Czarina on Friday, January 11, 2002 - 08:03 am:

    Maybe you should move it off of your TV,if you want to keep it in its original form.

    The heat from the TV might melt it into a flat type glob,and then it would loose alot of its interest.

    Its best to perserve things in their original state,for posterity to "ooh and aah" over.[Thats how the Smithsonion displays their artifacts,and they've been pretty sucessful,utelizing this method.]

    I also don't think they let kittys swat around their treasures.But use your best judgement on this one.

    Two words: ear candles! They rock. We tried them last weekend; its' a hollow candle, like a tube of wax that tapers at one end. You light the wide end and stick the narrow end in your ear, and it creates a chimney effect and draws the earwax up out of your ear. It's a pretty wild feeling, and you can hear it sizzle as it burns. All y'all should try them.

By The Watcher on Friday, January 11, 2002 - 01:33 pm:

    Just try the vinagar and alcohol mix.

    Honestly it really works. And, you don't need a bulb or water pic. Just an eye dropper.

By semillama on Friday, January 18, 2002 - 08:19 pm:

    I'm SO jealous.

    That's pretty cool.

    IF my girlfriend showed me such a thing, I
    would kiss her on the spot, becouse it mean
    she rocked.

    Not that I have a girlfriend, I speak

    you are buzzed, aren't you

By Nate on Friday, January 18, 2002 - 08:42 pm:

    those earcandles are bullshit. the physics just isn't there.

By heather on Friday, January 18, 2002 - 09:01 pm:

    it is a tube of wax

    the wax is sizzling

    the candle makes goo and pretends it sucked it out of you

    chimneys occasionally direct smoke- they don't draw logs and ashes onto your roof

By semillama on Friday, January 18, 2002 - 09:42 pm:

    And another cherished myth crashes to the
    forest floor.

    Oh, Icarus!!

    I'm way more buzzed now, that I've gotteninto
    the brandy my boss gave me for xmas.

By Nate on Friday, January 18, 2002 - 10:58 pm:

    i need to get up on my roof and sweep the logs out of my gutters. goddamn chimney effect. my chimney coefficient is particularly high. yesterday i had to go pull the cat and the couch down. both just sucked right up there, deposited on my roof.

By on Saturday, January 19, 2002 - 01:24 pm:

    when u got of the roof why the fuck didn't you jump

By Nate on Saturday, January 19, 2002 - 01:56 pm:

    i did, actually. once i've thrown the couch down into my yard i figured it would be easier to just land on the couch than come down the ladder. boy howdy! was i right! what a blast!

    oh, and nita, you forgot to put your name in when you posted that. tsk tsk. unwise. very unwise.

By Fetidbeaver on Monday, February 11, 2002 - 01:47 pm:

    WOW!!!! i just shit. i think i'll save it in a pickle jar and show all my friends. i've seen alot of bodily discharges and take it in stride, but if my wife was proud of her nasty filthy hygiene and saved it for me to see....i doubt that i could ever go down on her again.

    FB, you crack me up!

By Earwax is fun and gross on Wednesday, December 15, 2004 - 02:58 pm:

    This is hilarious. Don't worry, Nasty Earwax Girl, you're
    not alone. I've had massive chunks fall out of my ear,
    too. It's revolting and satisfying all at once. Like, "Wow!
    My ear is so clean and empty now!" and then, "Holy
    shitake! That thing is HUGE and gross and it smells!" It's
    also a scientific curiosity. I've wanted to hold on to the
    wax chunks too, because it's so unreal that a thing so
    big and nasty-looking could live in your ear for so long.
    Sometimes I wish I had a microscope to stick it under
    and look at. You hear about thise microscopic mites
    living in your eyebrows and eyelashes. In a juicy piece
    of earwax, I can only imagine what other creatures
    might be making their home in there.
