I think I permanently damaged my hearing at hard core shows in the 80's. (Thanks, Agent Orange!)

The title makes me almost willing to watch despicable me 2.

It was decent.  The first was distinctly superior, but the female lead in 2 is a pretty interesting and fun character.  I think out of all of them Despicable Me was the best film, but MegaMind is more entertaining on multiple viewings than either DM 1 or 2.

Agreed, 1 was overall better than 2 by a large margin, but the scene where they show El Macho going out in a blaze of glory may be the best moment of either film.

I think at least half of my toddler's toys seem to be designed to cause hearing loss. Why do they make those things so loud?

Saw it while toy shopping with the kid... I seem to remember it emitting a puff of banana-scented air along with the "fart" noise.

BOSE apparently has some technology where they can fire out a 'laser'esque beam of sound, which then hits a surface and the result is the sound appearing to come from that location rather than the actual origin.  Fart guns should be designed with this technology for maximum fun.  Bring it to the office, aim it at a coworkers chair, and fire.  Awkward conversation, and eventual meltdown.

No, they float as gently as a cloud.

oops just sent the fart blaster to my little niece for Christmas and here i'm thinking i was being a good uncle.

We bought my dad a Fart Gun for Chanukah. My niece & nephew cannot understand why Grandpa doesn't take his toy out of the box to play with.

// that scene has made every teenaged-and-above male in my family laugh uncontrollably on first viewing
// teenaged-and-above by age, not by maturity (obviously)

I said Dart gun.... why do you have to be so... old?

If I had known about the Despicable Me2 Fart Blaster sooner, it would have made Christmas shopping for Mrs_Old_Chief_Scott considerably less difficult.

I gotta say, with today's, technology, the current steampunk trend, and at that price, if you by that POS, you are tossing your money in a Chinese toilet. You could build a better fart machine out of a bunch of crap, or just visit taco bell.

1) firecrackers
2) rave parties
3) shop tools


Those did it for me.

Rule number three: you will not cry or whine or laugh or giggle or sneeze or burp or fart. So no-no-no annoying  sounds. Alright?

List fails without Hungry Hungry Hippos

/ Loved that game
// Parents never let us play it for very long because of the amazing amount of noise
 
2013-12-23 06:53:15 PM
So... apparently any toys that make noise loud enough to be heard from a few feet away, if you put them right up to your ear will hurt your hearing.  big surprise.
 
2013-12-23 09:43:50 PM
Are earbuds on the list?

/No, you can't make me check.  That's not the point now is it?

Jarts.

Yes, you could get hit in the ear with one during a jart fight.

Missing from the list:
caps/cap guns
drums
concerts
little kids(they all seem to be able to produce the most ear piercing shrieks)

People who design toys that make a lot of noise either don't have children or they have bad memories.
