The Cure For Hay Fever...Is A Ringtone?! (Crazy News Quiz)
by Sheryl Stewart,posted Mar 29 2010 12:53PM
Japanese scientists say they have found a cure for hay fever.....and it's a cell phone ringtone! They say if you hold your phone up to your nose and have someone call you, this ringtone will dislodge the pollen. Of course, people will think you have lost your mind (or at least forgot that you answer the phone with your ear, not your nose), but you know, when allergies are making you miserable, you will try and do just about anything for relief!
These same scientists also say they have a ringtone to help you lose weight.....and another to cure insomnia! If you want to hear what they sound like, click this link and listen to the BBC story. The hayfever one sounds kind of like an alarm clock....the others sound like cheesy 1995-era ringtones that came with your phone....but check 'em out and see if you think they will work.
