    How much does it cost to get your ears professionally cleaned?

    Typical costs: Without insurance, an appointment to have earwax removed can cost between $40 and $110 at a primary care physician's office or a clinic for people without insurance. CVS Minute Clinic charges $59 for ear wax removal. With insurance, typical copays and deductibles will apply.


    Teacher: What do you want to be when you grow up? Student: I want to remove wax from people's ears. Teacher: Get out.

    there used to be some guys in Delhi who had like 5-10 piece tool kits to clean your ears. A wild specialty, one hell of an ear cleaning.

I've always been what could charitably be described as astutely pessimistic, but I've crossed the line into being awfully negative an awful lot of the time. Not a whole lot excites me about getting out of bed each morning.

    I think part of it for me is that I'm over living a selfish existence. I spent the better part of the last decade doing what I wanted, when I wanted, and on my terms. If you didn't like it, don't let the door hit you in the ass on your way out. Needless to say, that gave me a lot of time to pursue things that interested me, albeit on my own. As I gain a (modest) amount of perspective with time, I see how ultimately, the rewards for pursuing a self-centered existence are fleeting and somewhat hollow. I have some confidence that I can get to the point where life feels fulfilling instead of like going through the motions. Sometimes the reward lies more in the struggle than the achievement of the goal.
    there is a nice Monastery, in Vina Ca run by the Trappist Monks, you may enjoy. close to good skiing in the Sierra’s near Lassen, they make the smelliest cheese in the West and you’ll have plenty of time for reflection and letter writing. you can kiss that selfish existence goodbye and say hello to serving others.

    Most of them had a tool kit consisting of one or two small metal rods, some cotton, and a mysterious and mystical elixir they injected into their subjects ears

    So if you can't use MF Q-tips, just exactly how does the wax "naturally" get eliminated???????
    Ear wax removers = low rent dentists

    I had a buddy who got his ears cleaned by a street vendor in India.

    We had tickets for the Greek(I believe) in Berkeley with Soul Coughing. I was pretty much saddened all the way around.
