Dear Stupid Ass Questions: I feel like I have an ear infection but don’t want to go to the doctor. I found some drops my vet gave me for my dog when he had one. Do you think I should double the dosage because I weigh about twice as much as him or should I call my vet and ask?

Kyle: The only thing worse than getting an ear infection is having to go all the way to your doctor’s office just so he can write a prescription to cure it, am I right?  As for using the dog medication-- what’s the worst that could happen?  (Neural toxicity and loss of brain function, if you must know.)  But as the great Ralph Waldo Emerson said: “All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better.”  I say triple the dosage and report back with your findings!  That is, if you can remember how to use a computer.

If his leg starts shaking involuntarily when he scratches his ass after taking the meds, he could upload a video of the phenomenon on Youtube. Part of the scientific method is publishing, right?
