I never got a headache, but I did become blind and sterile. I`m going to sue.

His narration, specifically his cadence and rhythm makes me hold my breath, can`t watch this video. Finding an article on this instead..

carmium, I don`t doubt it. When the brain tells you to feel pain or nausea, it`s just as real as any broken bone. In split personality cases, if one personalty is diabetic but the others aren`t, the person`s blood chemistry will change and he will be diabetic when that personality is dominant. Stuff like that is well documented. Just something I remember from my psych classes, but it`s amazing what the brain can do.

Gerry: I was hit by a drunk while riding my motorbike home once, and had my pelvis fractured. I lay on a gurney in the waiting room, gasping in pain, for two hours, while they treated a mass psychogenic case in the ER. Some smell had been detected on a bus (deli sandwich, fart, paint thinner, whatever) and it lead to a whole busload of people and the driver getting "sick." The bus pulled over, HazMat and firemen were called, and EVERYbody got sick. Problem was, absolutely nothing was ever found on the bus or in its air. After a lot of media coverage, the story quietly disappeared within two days. Clearly, a lot of professionals were embarrassed at how easily they had bought into the whole poison gas thing.

"Mass Psychogenic Illness"

`cause they hate to use the words self-hypnosis. You can make your brain do amazing things. Feel pains, stop pain, reduce blood pressure or increase it.

Probably explains why I always get an instant sore throat when I hear someone near me cough or sneeze. Also could explain the "power of prayer" for sick people who believe in that sort of thing. Won`t cure your cancer but will help your attitude, which can help your body fight.

This video proves that people bitched about "John Carter" only because all the idiot critics bitched bout it. And another thing ...

Does every guy who narrates this type of science-y video attend the same voice-training course? Every damn one seems to be narrated with this same quietly amused, blandly hipsterish, "I`m a barista on weekends but I know more interesting facts than you" yuppie lilt.

Or is it just the same damn guy doing ALL the voice-overs? Get a Samuel L. Jackson sound-alike to do a few. Put a woman`s voice in there. Change it up, for crap`s sake. From now on, no man gets to narrate this stuff unless he can first sing a convincing Howling Wolf song to a panel of judges who have never set foot inside a Starbucks. Women can sing a Janis Joplin song of their choice to the same judges.

Now I wish they would do a video where the 0.8% of the people who do experience severe/adverse side effects from medicines and food who are not believed, and almost die from anaphylaxis or other severe symptoms.
