Eyebrow Itch Cream
||is this silly randomness or there an idea in there
||the name is silly, but the idea is sound.
||eyebrows get itchy and why shouldn't an eyebrow
itch cream be purpose made for itchy eyebrows in
our world of excess.
||fact: my eyebrows get itchy from time to time.
I suspect others have experienced this.
I was inspired today when I saw a man with
excessively bushy eyebrows.
his eyebrows must get itchy, i was thinking there
is no way this guys eyebrows aren't on fire.
||maybe firebrow cream is a better name
||Eyebrow itching is usually caused by mites of the
genus Demodex. Itching happens when the mites
run out of their usual food (oils and dead skin), and
start to burrow in towards the skull.
||In the case of [vfrackis], they've obviously
tunneled waaay too far
||They tend to stop when they hit bone.
||However, there are exceptions. Skull bone
consists of a very spongy, porous layer sandwiched
between two denser layers. In some (random)
are small holes in the outer (and probably also the
inner) layer. Burrowing Demodex mites
sometimes get lucky and hit one of these holes,
allowing them to get into the spongy inner layer.
Fortunately, the inner layer is a partially 'closed
cell' foam, meaning that they can only migrate so
far within the spongy bone before reaching an
impasse (they can't get through bone material).
||If this happens in childhood or adolescence, the
bone can react either by expanding its spongy
layer, leading to an otherwise inexplicable bump
in the skull; or by collapsing, leading to a thin bit
of skull which manifests itself as a dent. In any
one individual, the bone seems to do either one
or the other - so you might have two or more
bumps; or two or more dents; but you're unlikely
to have a bump and a dent (other than injuries).
||Come on vfrackis these ideas while being mildly funny
concepts are not original inventions. If you had posted an
idea for an eyebrow brow, a high brow to be worn above
eyebrow that might qualify. Or even a lowbrow, might be
more fitting for you, an eyebrow for below the eye much
like baseball players wear, but only a brow. Or even an
earbrow, a brow shaved into the side of the head above
the ear, using already existing hair. Or even a Lobe Brow
below the ear. However despite the
ease of creating something that is even a little bit original,
you have posted this.
