|(from the article)|
Bugorski did experience some side effects, including paralyzation of the left side of his face and mental fatigue that didn't stop him from completing his PhD. One of the weirdest side effects he experienced was that the left half of his face is frozen in time. The right side of his face has aged normally and looks as you'd expect an old man to look, but the left side of his face still looks young.
However, I hereby award Bugorski with the "geekiest way to lose one's hearing" award, because according to the article:
He lost the hearing in his left ear and experienced a constant unpleasant noise in that ear from then on.There's nothing pleasant about tinnitus - but at least he has an interesting story to tell!
