WelldeadLink: IronJelly: They tested the air?  Fine, but why does it need to be the air?

"Carbon monoxide exposure, which originally was suspected, was ruled out."

Right.  and when it was ruled out, did they look for any other possible source?  no?  Poor kids.

As a child, I suffered from migraines from time to time.  The kind that make suicide seem reasonable just to end the pain.  My school's electricity began coming from a nearby substation, and the frequency of them occurring at school nearly doubled.  The next year, in middle school, they were back to their normal rare occurrences.  Only later did I learn that with the extra power the school was getting, the lights were different.  I don't know if they were brighter,or louder, or i was reacting in general to more ambient electricity, but the fact remains that the new power source was the problem.

farking headaches, how do they work?
