Ok. Now this is just F'n disgusting. But here's apparently what can happen if you wear Air Pods regularly.
I'd say post-pandemic, there are probably a lot of people who have invested in some sort of ear bud technology. Even if you're at home and taking Zoom/Skype/Google Meets you may be using ear buds to hear better. Or to keep your meetings quieter for others at home.
Should there be a warning for people about this? Like "regular wearing of an ear bud device can cause FUNGUS BALLS in your goddamn ears"? I'd like to say yes.
Please take a moment to see exactly what happens when you wear your ear buds on the regular. Then barf. Then watch again because you know you will.
