tinnitus
Place the palms of your hands over your ears with fingers resting gently on the back of your head. Your middle fingers should point toward one another just above the base of your skull. Place your index fingers on top of you middle fingers and snap them (the index fingers) onto the skull making a loud, drumming noise. Repeat 40-50 times. Some people experience immediate relief with this method. Repeat several times a day for as long as necessary to reduce tinnitus.Dr. Jan Strydom, of A2Z of Health, Beauty and Fintess.org.

This always works for me.

Warner Bros Suspends Sales of Batman: Arkham Knight PC Version | Hacker News
"We don't need unit tests because we have integration tests. We don't need integration tests because we have QA acceptance tests. We don't need QA acceptance tests because end users will report any bugs to us. We don't listen to user feedback because declining sales will tip us off to the problems. We don't pay attention to sales numbers because creditors seizing our assets will alert us of the shortcoming."
