figured all the years of loud noises caught up to me,
but as it turns out i had some extra ear wax, sounded
a bit like a ear plug was partially in the ear so
sounds were muffled but i could still hear internally
(noises like chewing cheetos). no i'm not a doctor nor
play one on tv but adding 1/2 hydrogen peroxide, 1/2
warm water to the ear and letting it bubble for a few
minutes then dumping the stuff out into a tissue did
seem to do the trick. so apparently loud bikes like
the cr500 didn't kill my hearing, yet...

For real fun, order a USB ear cam from eBay. It's amazing how much crud
is in there and how resistant it is to physical attack. I really admire
the ENT guys who went to medical school and bothered to get
board-certified who end up spending most of their time cleaning their
patients' ears.

The phone app may or may not reverse the image so you can move the
camera around intuitively rather than the other way. You might want to
ask the seller if HIS app works right before you order.

They're handy inspection devices, especially if you hook it up to a tablet.

I wish I could remember which of the two we bought have the proper app.
Or maybe the other one has a 'reverse' switch that we just didn't notice.

Long ago when a co-worker went to the bathroom without logging out it
was possible to make his mouse work exactly backward. Fun to watch.

There is no such thing as a foolproof device
because fools are so ingenious.

That little spoon on the end doesn't work worth shit. The ENT guy used
tweezers for the big chunks.
