you sure it wasn't just an extreme reaction to christmas music? :whistler:
i get a similar feeling sometimes when i go into a shop & they have it playing...

hope it all turns out ok & no lasting damage. ears are very sensitive, & any damage can be extremely painful. & loud...
& you sit there in the rubble, till it starts to feel like home

So... Christmas came early to you? It is a horrible experience, I go nuts when a mozzie dive-bombs into my ear let alone something as large as that.

Last night I shuffled the pillows around just before retiring and one of those vicious big brown cockroaches crawled from under the pillow. YUCK! I doomed it with the speed of Startrek, but found him still crawling around the floor this morning, although on its last legs as well. I stomped it.

you have to be careful spraying cockroaches with commercial sprays - they often take very long to die and then they lay loads of eggs and the offspring are then immune to those particular sprays - so all those Doom and Raid things are effectively all but useless and make things much worse rather than better as far as cockroaches go

only way to properly get rid of them is proper fumigation ie call in the fumigators and cover up sensitive items and leave home for a day or two to let them do the job - plus its best to use fumigators who use both industrial strength spray and powders in tandem and also who change their formulas regularly for the spray

Damnit Nittin, I have to sleep tonight but now I will lie awake cringing for fear of those buggers hatching and start crawling looking for their ma. Hopefully, it was a male 'roach...

Interesting fact that I was not aware of, so next time will be an immediate SPLAT!

Not sure, but don't the big dark ones also fly? Can easly come in via an open window. I may be thinking of a different type.
I saw Sputnik, well... actually the booster rocket that went into orbit with it!!

Big cockroaches can fly, I know from experience both from seeing the buggers land on the bedroom wall when the window was open, and from one landing on my face at a braai a few years ago.  I tend to ‘coax them down’ with Doom then immediately stomp them with a slipper.  Then they go straight into the bin whether they are still moving a bit or not (to stop them laying eggs).

I’ve had a fly in my ear before (luckily after a minute it exited of its own volition) which was a rather disorienting experience, hope there is no lasting effect from this.
