GET A SONG UNSTUCK FROM YOUR HEAD
Blame your brain for that horrid Britney track stuck in your head since Monday’s morning drive — a glitch in your auditory cortex is causing the record to spin round’n’round endlessly.
Two ways to get it out:
1. Listen to the song in its entirety
2. Do some math
No joke, folks. This stuff works like magic.
