When the noises that you hear aren't in your head

From today's Wired:

Attention, Electronic Gadgets: Shut Up! The modern world is too damn noisy. Car alarms, beeping microwaves, chirping beepers, cell phones that play that hideous 50 Cent hook... it's all just a bit much, isn't it? "The people who make all these things obviously think we're idiots. That without their constant, irritating reminders, we'd go wandering off, our minds blank, to drool down our shirts or spend 30 minutes tying our shoes. The world is noisy enough without adding completely useless aural pollution to the mix." Wired 10/27/05

Feeling particularly curmudgeonly today.

NO KIDDING. It's why there are times when I can be at home all day long and not turn on the stereo. Silence IS golden.

Maybe the world needs more curmudgeons, Thom... ;)

Seriously Thom, you tell 'em! And they wonder why librarians got the rep for *shushing.*
