Head Exploding Syndrome?

Seriously I found this on Cracked and all I can say is that I have had this shit happen before, not often mind you but enough that the second I read about it I recognized the symptoms.

From the ASA:

“Exploding head syndrome is a rare and relatively undocumented parasomnia event in which the subject experiences a loud bang in their head similar to a bomb exploding, a gun going off, a clash of cymbals or any other form of loud, indecipherable noise that seems to originate from inside the head. Contrary to the name, exploding head syndrome has no elements of pain, swelling or any other physical trait associated with it. They may be perceived as having bright flashes of light accompanying them, or result in shortness of breath, though this is likely caused by the increased heart rate of the subject after experiencing it. It most often occurs just before deep sleep, and sometimes upon coming out of deep sleep…”

Could we come up with a name that sounds a little like “Holy shit, Head Exploding Syndrome, we are all going to die!!!” if it’s doesn’t actually make your head explode?  Even AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome) doesn’t sound as evil as Head Exploding Syndrome, and AIDS if fucking AIDS!  Head exploding Syndrome isn’t even fatal, or a health risk, it just fucks up your sleep now and then.  Can’t we call it Wake Up To Loud Shit In You Head Syndrome?  I know that’s a little long it doesn’t make you look like the perfect candidate for a member of Hamas.

Inside the Hamas recruiting center:

You:  Hello I would like a job… Allahu Akbar or something…

Recruiter:  Well what are your qualifications?  Can you hide a bomb in your robe and run with it at a school bus?

You:  Bomb, I have Head Exploding Syndrome I don’t need a bomb.

Recruiter:  Well that will cut down on overhead, you’re hired.

End Scene…
