SevenizGud: Does TFA really mean to suggest that she could not hear the spoken word sounds at all, or just that she could hear them, but not understand them? TFA says that at one point conversations turned to gibberish, but it was not clear that it then descended into complete silence.farking bliss, though, I tell you that. If you could turn off people's talking, and add to it the turning off of their car stereos and retarded farking exhaust system noise, you'd have a trillion dollar market right there.
Driedsponge: When you live with it long enough, the brain actually becomes quite adept at filling in the missing pieces, but when it screws up, it leads to some mighty strange conversations.
jaytkay: I used to do this consciously. While listening to the radio I could stop comprehending English and listen as if it were a foreign language.Can't do it anymore. And it was impossible with live people - too much engagement I guess.

moel: I think i'm probably tumourless...it's been the case since i was a kid...doesn't really bother me, i much prefer a jaunty tune to listening to Adele the fatty whinge about something.

I rarely hear lyrics. In high school English we would read Shakespeare aloud. I could read for five minutes and afterwards would not be able to give a summary of the content.
Chainsaw Turd Elf: or it's called being married. Amirite fellas?
