Pour it in your ear?

Did you know that Viagra was originally created by Pfizer for angina?  I don’t think it did much for heart disease, but men who suffered from impotence discovered they got a stiffie from taking it.

I think it’s great, but there are other so-called cures that I find baffling. For example, I once heard you could cure an earache by pouring urine in your ear.

Here’s my question: Who discovered this and how? I mean, say you had a really bad earache and the ear drops weren’t working. I could see trying peroxide in your ear, but can you imagine sitting around thinking, “Oh, I’ll bet if I peed in a cup and poured my urine in my ear the pain would go away.”

I’m here to tell you, I’d rather have an earache.

I know what you’re thinking… “Oh, Charlotte made that up.” The answer is no. Not even I, the weirdest person in the world could come up with something like that.

    Count me in on the ear ache. *G* Did you read the recent CNN article that NASA is going to recycle the waste water into drinking water for the astronauts? NO WAY IN HADES would I drink that water!

    I ran into a bloke the other day who had a banana in one ear and custard in the other. He was a trifle deaf :)

    LMAO at the pee thing! Was just talking to some friends about old wives tales that have to do with pee. I have heard about using the first urine of the morning to “wash” away your blemishes (yeah- that one was actually mentioned to me a few times when I was going through my ugly duckling teenage years.) Also, heard of putting baby’s diaper on eye as a fix for pink eye! Gross. I think people put this stuff out there just to see who might try it! Freakazoids…..
