Today's Review: Headaches

I have a headache right now. In fact, I've had some form of headache or other for quite some time now, something that is currently being investigated, but that's another story for another time. But everyone has headaches. From regular, to pressure headaches, to full blown migraines, everyone understands what a headache entails. Apparently women get them a lot more than men, at least that's what popular media has told me.

So yes, headaches suck. But they're just a fact of life aren't they? Headaches are here to stay. But why? They don't make sense. I know pain is a way for our bodies to tell us something's wrong and we should probably stop doing the thing that's making us hurt, but there are so many things that can go wrong in your head, just giving us a pain isn't really helping. We're an advanced civilisation, we have evolved, can't we give birth to someone who instead of getting a non-specific head pain gets a little voice in their brain saying "Hey, asshole, stop drinking so damn much"? Then we can let him breed and further humanity while we all sit grumbling in corners holding our heads.

I know, silly solution, but headaches still suck. So while we toil away at making painkillers and getting to the source of the problem, there'll always be those pains in our head pissing us off and clouding our judgement. Because headaches are bastards.

My rating: 0/5
