Nasal Spout

This reminds me of a supposed cure for nasal congestion. It is a Yoga technique called "Jal Neti"

To be fair...

After thinking alot about this, I conferred with friend of mine and we discussed the topic at length, and looked at several links - one mentioned in this thread he found exactly. I commented to him that there was insufficient evidence in that particular article... but being the skeptic that I am, we searched for more.

We should have thought to hit the James Randi site (duh!). After a few links, here's what we dug up:

Some neat experiments to try. I'll try them with my aunt. Basically you hold the candle in a jar of water and should get the same kinda wax. JR says the wax is from the bees-wax turning that color. Should be interesting.

Fun with bodily orifices

I find that if you want a thorough cleaning of your ear, use hydrogen peroxide (from CVS, NOT industrial strength!)
It will feel very strange as it fizzes but it only attacks the wax. Use a Qtip to clean out the residue.

if you want to "clear your mind of impurities", I would sugest a concentrated solution of NaOH: Alow to "work" until the solution makes its way out to the other ear.
