Yesterday I put the cable of my headphones from the right side of the computer to the left side. Surprisingly, after listening to some music my left ear started to hurt. I stopped the music immediately and the pain went away after a few minutes.
I didn't tell my headphones that I had moved the cable, my computer didn't know either because I still used the same USB port.

Two sharp left bends in the cable really can be health-threatening, yes, really.

PS: I'm afraid I have to admit that half of the story is true.
