(NBC News)   At long last, science explains why your spouse/partner's voice is so easily heard even at a crowded party. Missing from the article is the simplest explanation: her voice is as annoying as a 3:00 AM smoke alarm sonata   (nbcnews.com) divider line 22

Typical scientists, always explaining shiat nobody cares about. If they wanted to be useful, they would have told us how to IGNORE your spouses voice.

You can tell it's your spouse because that's the frequency that's been blown out of your hearing.

All you "hear" is ear bones crunching together.

My first wife's voice made hers sound like the Song of the Sirens.  This is why, when I remarried it was to a mute girl.

I don't care how her voice sounds. That's one hot chick.

Next they'll be telling us that if we look at a photo of 20 faces, we'll have an easy time picking out which one is our partner.

I mentioned this to my wife, and she said "So it's like you going 'BARB-ra BARB-ra BARB-ra' like a European ambulance?"

Well played, wife, well played.

You deserve a few bites for this one.  9/10.

You could hear my ex lie through a crowded courtroom.

Because he/she is calling your NAME?
Dnra.

It only takes a few years of marriage and it automatically happens.

Voices and manner of speech are vastly underrated in discussions of attraction, but I can't imagine living with someone whose voice was unpleasant. How do you even get past the first few dates with someone like that?

A shrill, annoying voice was always a nonstarter for me.  Years ago I knew a beautiful Italian-American girl who grew up in Brooklyn.  The minute she opened her mouth, I was repulsed. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=te3SKc0-lO0

Parents have known about this for generations. It's called selective hearing for a reason.

When I was in college there was a girl who dated one of the guys in our group for a while.  She had a really annoying Fran Drescher thing going on.  Until she got drunk.  Then she sounded like a normal person.    We did our best to keep her drunk all the time.

There was a woman in the bar last night with a voice like a jackhammer. I was sitting thirty feet away, and I'm half deaf, and I could still hear every syllable of her incredibly boring, long-winded story. I left when I started to get an earache.

Her husband is a pretty heavy drinker. Now I know why.

The theory about familiarity is bunk.  When I have a crush on someone, usually someone I don't know very well, I've often marveled at how well I can immediately pick out their voice in a crowded room.
