How to avoid ice cream headaches
The Mayo Clinic provides an obvious way to avoid brain freeze: eating ice cream or drinking cold drinks more slowly. But since you're a glutton and you're not going to do that, The Telegraph interviewed Dr. Amanda Ellison from Durham University in the UK, who provided another option specifically to avoid a brain freeze -- aim the straw down your throat instead of at the roof of your mouth. That should do the trick.
Since it'll be kind of tough to not have ice cream hit the roof of your mouth when you're eating it, the only way to avoid ice cream headaches is to eat that pint of Cherry Garcia slower. And to that we say, good luck, America.
