    Kids around here will text during classes. If the cell phone goes off during a quiet part you can hear this nrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr......... sound.

    That's clever, but that noise is kind of painful to listen to. I definitely wouldn't want to hear that every time I got a text message.

    I read about that a few weeks ago. I did the test and I couldn't hear it.

    It does make me wonder though....when I was on my meetup, Joe and Scott were talking about the whining noise that TVs make when they are on, but not on a channel. I couldn't, for the life of me, hear it, but both of them could. Now, they are both older than the age listed in that article, but younger than me...so...maybe that's why I coudln't hear it? Hmmmmm. :p

    I know I'm not the only one that can walk by a house and 'hear' if the t.v. is on or not...I'd trade this power for x-ray vision though.

    I can even tell when my neighbors TV is on when I'm in my back yard. I have really weird hearing though. The ringtone thing about blew my eardrums out.

    Michael.............say what?
