(YouTube link)

The latest from AsapSCIENCE tries to convince me that my ears make my stomach hurt when I go on carnival rides that I shouldn't. What do they know? -via Geekosystem

My oldest niece, on the other hand, has had trouble with carsickness on trips longer than about an hour or so all her life, from the time she was about 9 months obviously still in a car seat. She usually gets sick once and then is finished...but that once is usually a bad one.

I get so motion-sick that I feel sick if I'm watching scrolling credits at the end of a movie or TV show. I have to be heavily drugged to go on planes.

Excellent! I was one of those kids that barfed in the car, when I was still too small to see above the seats and out the windows. This was before car seats or seat belts. Given this explanation for motion sickness, wouldn't the advent of car seats for children, in addition to saving their lives, have helped prevent kids from puking so much, when they could better sync up their eyes and ears with their brains? Comments from parents?
