Happy Birthday F

I was going to post a baby picture of F but he vehemently objected. "I'm not a baby mom, duh." So here is something he finds hilarious. I can't hear a thing. He assures me it's like fingernails on a chalkboard.

This explained sound waves better than anything I could say.

I failed!!! But I knew that I would. When we were visiting my Father-in-law at the hospital last year, some of my kids were complaining about the noise (of which I could not hear). I did some research then and found out about the Mosquito.

I could hear it, Tom couldn't. I don't think I heard it as loud as the kids though.

In the mid 80's we looked at a property that had high tension wires on it. That buzzing was the sound that I heard really loud...giving me a headache. There was NO way I could live on that property.

OOOps! And Happy Birthday to the birthday guy! Hope he had a great day. And remind him that he's one year closer to not being able to hear that noise! bwahahaha

I heard about this on the radio and they played the sound, but I couldn't hear it. But when I clicked your link, I did hear it! Yeah, it is annoying, but in a mall where they are piping in music in each of the stores, I doubt I would notice it. I guess younger people can hear it better.
