This point is not quite on topic with what you were talking about but here goes: I always appreciate a brain freeze from eating cold foods because the feeling I get when it goes away is so great that it almost makes having the freeze worth it. I feel better, right after it goes away, than I did before I had it.

That is classic! Very funny. I never thought of that before... seeking out something painful just to experience the joy of recovery. Sometimes I feel jogging is like that.
