he should have tried chewing gum like 20 years ago?

ok, so this guy is in the UK National Service shooting really loud guns right next to his ear. over the next few decades, his hearing was severely diminished. he got a hearing aid, even.

then, kid goes skiing and, whilst on the ski lift, hears a loud "pop!" and his hearing is back. clear as a bell.

go figure.

and now for the extremely british response:

"Regaining your hearing because of a change in altitude is very unusual - and the NHS aren't going to be prescribing holidays to the Alps anytime soon!"

no they bloody well aren't!
