Logically, I know why sinuses exist.

They lighten your head. If sinuses were solid, instead of hollow, your head would weigh a lot more, and your neck would have to be (unattractively) thicker to support it. Alien like, even.

So sinuses are good.

Except when them become inflamed, and pound, and generally make themselves known.

Then they suck.

*cradles head, pressing on sinuses, trying to relieve the pressure*

I feel for you.

My Ear, Nose, and Throat doc told me that the only
"natural" way for sinuses to drain properly is if
you hang upside down.

More proof of Darwin, perhaps?

Oh, lord, do I feel your pain. I hope it gets better soon. Sinuses suck, and I would trade having them be solid and no longer painful for a thick, alien neck ANY DAY.

Besides.. if we evolved that way, we probably wouldn't think it very weird or gross.
