Why can't we artificially recreate headaches in a simulator so people would have more empathy for me when i go home from work all angry and with a headache.

It shouldn't be too hard to build. One way is to build a chamber that you step into and it suddenly pressurizes then depressurizes over and over again until your head is really hurting. Or it can be as simple as a plug you stick into the wall and touch the bare ends to your forehead. Then it would hurt alot on your temple.

This way, someone can experience my pain, and not really have to.. right?

       You can sell it easily IF with the press of a button you could turn it into a sex simulator.   

       With all the pain already built into life, I can empathize without having to go looking for some more.

       A migraine simulator? Go to Chuck E. Cheese for about 10 minutes.

       Or Guitar Center.

       Worse: Chuck E Cheese on a Friday night, with a 4 year old. <Shudder>

       It's actually quite a romantic spot. Ask the maitre d' for the table in the corner.
