Nytfall: al's hat: Shostie: Kind of agree.If I had money I'd invest it in hearing aid manufacturers.This, this, this!For years I warned my now 25 year old step-son to turn his friggin' headphones down or he would damage his hearing. I'm almost twice his age and my hearing is far better than his at this point. He admits I was right but it's still incredibly frustrating to have to repeat myself ad nauseum when trying to have a conversation with him.Wow. Same age stepson, same warnings, same outcome. Are you my secret alt?
lack of warmth: twfeline: How do you make a quiet jackhammer?I am really curious about that one myself and you beat me to the post.mllawso: SideshowRaheem: The earbuds allow a lot of outside noise inI've found the opposite to be true -- earbuds are essensially ear plugs with a tiny speaker in them. Unless you've comparing those huge studio style headphones that seems to be popular with kids now -- those block out everything.I say bring back these (the headphones, not the walkman).[cache.gawkerassets.com image 468x337]NO. The sound quality sucked with those things. I prefer the big headphones like the ones that are making a comeback right now, you know covers the whole ear. Also easier to block outside sound without cranking the volume too loud. I know it makes me sound old, but they work when you are homeschooling kids who might otherwise get distracted.

Uchiha_Cycliste: Shostie: Kind of agree.If I had money I'd invest it in hearing aid manufacturers.that's smart because the boomers are losing their hearing.Which is actually great for me. It means insurance cares about hearing aids now. Batteries are easier to find, people gawk at aids less. It's like the only positive thing the Boomers have ever done.\How sad that the Boomers greatest contribution is losing their hearing.

KrispyKritter: DamnYankees: Hey idiots (meaning commenters above) - this is a public awareness campaign. He's not making anything illegal.Holy shiat, a post worth reading. But I do enjoy the many whiners writing hate that don't even live in New York. It's good to look for something to biatch about.
Did someone say "beige"?
I've seen the future. Do you know what it is? It's a 47-year-old virgin sitting around in his beige pajamas, drinking a banana-broccoli shake, singing "I'm an Oscar Meyer Wiener".
TOWG: I saw a headline today that said up to 80% of NYC high school grads can't farking READ! I guess the mayor has his priorities.
