Why

I stuck a Q-Tip into my right ear too far by accident, and now I can hear my pulse when everything is quiet. This is not the first time it’s happened. It’s annoying, but eventually goes away. I think during a recent doctor’s visit, the nurse examining me said she could see my eardrum in that ear. We are freaks of asymmetry.

Also, not into detective work around mystery names with no follow back potential. Cut it out.
