      Ayone seen the horrible footage of the recent attack on police in Ukraine ?

      On some of the footage you see people holding there ears and you can see at least one police officer on the ground putting his fingers in his ears in agony, probably ruptured ear drums, poor guy, having aquired T myself I always look at these things with an extra dimension. I always wonder how many extra sufferers will join because of a couple of hotheaded idiots.

      Suspected Grenade Thrower In Kiev Caught On Camera


      The policeman is not in this footage as I can not find it on youtube but they showed it here on the news yesterday.
      The blast must have hit with tremendous force, 1 killed and over a hundred wounded.Think about the loudest firecracker times 10.

      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Ear infection.
      Also this reminds me of the First World War. When they fired those big guns . If you watch the old film footage, you can see no ear protection and they are not putting hands over ears either. There must have been thousands of soldiers with hearing and tinnitus related problems.

      They (warring armies) still fire big guns, and still mostly do not wear hearing protection because it's not very practical in a theater of war.

      Tinnitus is the #1 disability complaint among veterans of recent US wars.
