Five GIFs that express the sensation of flying with sinus congestion

December 29, 2013 by Jen

The title pretty much says it all. Visiting family for Christmas is a great delight; however, flying home with a head cold is more like:

1. Bubblegum about to explode

2. The Death Star exploding

3. Doc Ock losing control of his sun

4. The birth scene in the Alien movies

5. Priori Incantatem in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

Rest assured; despite all threats to the contrary, my ears did not, in fact, explode. If they had, it would have made a far better science fiction movie. The royalties would have been nice, but I think I’ll settle for a box of Kleenex and a pair of intact eardrums.

Merry Christmas, y’all.
