October 02, 2007: The Most Hideous Sound In The World

Behold! The most hideous sound in the world!

The sound you may or may not have just heard is a sound that is so high pitched that, in general, only young people can hear it. Generally, by the time a person has reached their mid-thirties, their ears have degraded to the point that they can no longer hear this incredibly, overwhelmingly, painful noise.

Count yourselves blessed.

For those of you who can't actually hear the above noise, let me try to describe it to you....It is like having the collected works of Noam Chomsky converted to digital format and then downloaded directly into your brain in only 10 seconds.

Sheer. Total. Pain.

I die a little every time I hear it.
