That is your price of admission. You wanted to have your life in your hands and play for keeps, well you have to pay the price of admission. The price for our generation is that sound. Did you know its called a Siren song? That's actually the sound range that you can never hear again due to damage to the hairs off your ear drum that are killed when exposed to too loud of a noise. Now your brain is desperately trying to hear that range again so it creates its own sound or it will go mad with loss and lonely. That is your price. Each member of the club of doers must pay a price.
Payment of this price of admission guarantees nothing, but the chance to play the chance to maybe decide for your self how you live and die. The rest is up to you.
But, you have to pay the price of admission if you want the chance to play the game. It guarantees nothing, but your chance to play. I've paid. Have you paid, Anon?
And for no good damned reason either.
I can't recall a single instance, or group of time that could have given me tinnitus, but here I am, feeling the eeeeeeeee
>tfw dad always forgot to bring earplugs or headphones
>tfw he's almost deaf so he doesn't notice
>tfw i'm forced to do with shitty earplugs bought from whoever runs the range
>tfw never enough
>tfw slowly losing my hearing because my dad doesn't give a shit
The gooberment is currently paying me for the tinitus it so generously bestowed me with.
I get 10% disability for tinitus and 10% for lower back pain.
TFW my ears hardly ring but maybe once or so a week and its not that bad and my back doest hurt anymore. Thanks Uncle Sam for my $263 a month for the rest of my life.
Way to be a faggot "wow I'm so deep".
I have it, ever since an IED went off in Iraq. Quit your fucking whining. That's the type of of self pity fishing for attention than ppl who pit up signs "no fireworks plz I'm a combat vet". Aka some bitch ass pog who wants sympathy for being a fobbit.
Firecrackers are obviously less audible than gunshots, like anyone that's ever heard both could tell you.
>tfw ever since I was a little kid I wanted to join the military for artillery
>tfw a musician so my hearing is precious to me
If I wear my ear pro all the time will I be okay? I can afford to shell (no pun intended) out quite a bit for top grade hearing protection that only blocks out the ranges that fuck my hearing over.
>this is you and your dad... and your sisters
It's caused by more than loud noise. Pressure on the drums is another cause. You could have high blood pressure, tense jaw muscles or a fucked up skull. Does your tongue naturally rest on the roof of your mouth? That can cause it over time by pushing the roof of your mouth upwards.
I don't want to do it full time. Just for the Nasty Girls. Minimize the peacetime bullshit.
I just want to fire large guns and pop a boner. Is that too much to ask?
If you're underaged and unemployed, I understand. Otherwise, get off your lazy ass and get a job or sell some of your stuff to afford headphones.
Howard Leight Impact Sport OD Electric Earmuffs are $40 on amazon. That's free shipping too. Theyre fucking great.
You MIGHT shoot artillery twice, three times a year.
If you double up on ear plugs and ear muffs, it should help, but hey man, 11bs get to shoot cool guns too
The m249 is a fucking blast, and so is the at4
I'll pay for you guys. Here we go..
Cover your ears with your palms and your fingers on the back of your head. Now with your index fingers drag them over you middle fingers and onto the back of your head with force. Like you are clicking. You should hear a loud thump. Repeat 60 times for a minute or so and then praise your restored hearing.
Took me far too long to learn this.
also press down with your palms hard so you cant hear anything but the thumping. got to repeat this everytime it comes back. it will dissappear on its own in a few months
also bumping because i want as many tinitus affected people as possible to see this. I might make a thread in a short time.
I feel like this is some ruse to fuck up my ears
Its not mate trust me. It works if you have tinnitus.
I heard about it on leddit and people there agree.
I have tinnitus but I have never shot a gun until only recently. Had it for a long time. I think it might be repeated high volume sneezes that my dad does that killed my hearing. Shit is loud when you're sitting beside him in a car.
Place the palms of your hands over your ears with fingers resting gently on the back of your head. Your middle fingers should point toward one another just above the base of your skull. Place your index fingers on top of you middle fingers and snap them (the index fingers) onto the skull making a loud, drumming noise. Repeat 40-50 times. Some people experience immediate relief with this method. Repeat several times a day for as long as necessary to reduce tinnitus.
I was a long time ago and I was pretty young so I don't remember it too well, it was like back in elementary school I think maybe 1st grade. But I'm pretty sure I was pretty far gone, had to take over a month off of school and had to take shit tons of antibiotics.
Overall the biggest memory of it was the pain, I think it was my right leg, but any movement in it was pure agony for a while.
I didn't feel too sick. Got back from a month vacation and went swimming in my cold ass pool. That's when the bulls eye rash appeared. My knees got pretty stiff for awhile but that's all I can remember.
Wow. I don't know what weird witchcraft makes that work but it's kinda like that one time I had an awful head-cold and the pressure let me hear complete silence for just one night.
>Does it sound like a pop then a high pitched ringing?
At times, yes. But it's usually just a constant tone you hear in quiet places, often overcome by playing music or turning a fan on when you try to sleep.
If you really screwed up, you might hear it 24/7 no matter how much outside noise there is.
