SAD Lug Lamps :-S

I suspect those who buy this product who only insert one ear-plug will see light shining from the other ear'ole.   :)

 "headlights" is a cooler name than "lug lamps".

If the hypothesis is correct, (light reaches your brain through your skull), then people who wear lightproof headgear (or have one of these [O8)] ) must be more prone to SAD.  [ that may explain why hoodies  are miserable.  :) ]

I'm sure that's not right. I was always told that if you want to get ahat, get a head.

I wonder; would it also be beneficial to shine light into other orifices where the sun does not normally shine?

The Valkee earbuds are certified in Europe as a medical device, but veteran sleep researcher Gary Trock, co-director of Sleep Evaluation Services at Beaumont Hospital in Michigan, told MSNBC earlier this week that he remains skeptical given he's seen nothing in peer-reviewed scientific journals about the device: "Until I see more data, I won't be sticking this in my ear."
