Placebo Effect

Thumbs Up Placebo Effect
The idea came up the other day while splitting wood, but certain things (like listening to dubstep) can magic-away illness or fatigue temporarily. The music itself doesn't do much in reality, but because the human mind is a strange and powerful thing, it makes reality meet your expectations.

TL;DR I believe music will make me feel good (read: hurt less), therefor it will.

Anyone else abuse things like this?

Forever vigilent.

RE: Placebo Effect
I haven't been ill in a couple of years--last time I had anything more than a cold it was my appendix, and I wouldn't rely on music to fix that.

As for fatigue, I strangely find death metal to be among the most relaxing types of music, rather than classical music, which does the opposide.

As the crescendo approaches my heart beats like 150 bpm.

I play too many games at once.

I guess not. Granted, mine blew about two months ago.
Never actually went to a doctor, but very probably should have.
Amazing how you can tell if an injury is probably going to end you.

...I don't think I've felt worse pain than that, though.
(No doctor, because immune system like a tank with faulty ID scanner. I'll catch everything once, but not MORE than once.)
