    I don't even attempt to read or play games in the car, or even look down for extended periods of time. Motion sickness strikes sometimes within a few seconds. It takes much longer on a bus, but that's why I started listening to audio books. I don't know why, but I seem to be most prone to motion sickness around sunset. At night I seem to be much more immune. I just hope the oculus rift agrees with me.

    God, you made me laugh. I know better than to read forums in the library too.

    I would be afraid to spend money on something like the Oculous Rift. It looks amazing! And it would all be ruined by putting it on and getting sick in a few minutes. What I want to know is... Can I wear one of those things around everywhere I go and have a Terminator like vizor analyzing everything I see?!

    Laughing out loud in public is the best. Especially in places where loud outbursts and unexpected.

    I've only ever really been motion sick once. It was in elementary school, and I got sick reading a book while on the way back from my grandmother's house. To this day, it's still kind of weird to me. I always read in the car, and I've never been motion sick before or since, and it wasn't like it was a coincidence that I happened to get a stomach bug at the same time I was reading, because I felt better as soon as we got home.

    marijuana--yes, really

    I've had problems on and off with motion sickness, unfortunately things have gotten worse because of a few factors:
    - 3 years ago, I had a sinus + ear infection for 2 months
    - 2 years ago, while landing in a plane my ear suddenly wouldn't unpop? nothing I could do would unpop it. I ended up with vertigo for a few weeks and my doctor said I ruptured some kind of eardrum wall (not the entire eardrum)
    - I barely ever ride in cars anymore
    - when I do ride in cars, it is never ever on hills

    I've become the boring adult my dad is. My dad has an inner ear disorder so he could never play on the playground or get on amusement park rides with me. A few months ago I tried using a swingset and got motion sick...so now I'm the boring adult

    for a long train ride or car trip a dramimine will do. however in terms of random occasional vertigo and nausea weed is the only thing that helps functioning ASAP. I have no clue how I would have functioned without it after the plane thing. there's no actual physical repair you can do for that kind of vertigo. unfortunately once in between hilly car rides, I stopped at a friend's house to smoke and all they had was a bong--I use a vaporizer so I smoked way too much and I was a useless lump all evening. so be careful.
