That's a really uplifting quotation!

I nearly died when I read it. Not exactly what my advisor told me. Hopefully that's not what they're teaching you in med school, either...

The Sinus Buddy is fair, but it tends to absorb odors from the freezer. So it's not always nice if you're having nausea plus headache:-)
