Bad vibrations




Remember this?

A whole smorgasbord of awful sounds awaits you at Bad Vibes.The classic fingernails on a board? Bone crunching? Roll up and have a play.

Bad Vibes results from a Salford University psychology experiment into what makes a sound unpleasant. The research is done but you can still inflict pain on your nearest and dearest.

I had to quit after sound number 5. The nerves were getting a little frayed.....

I didn't watch the video. I'm looking for good vibrations. Even before I saw this post I was seeking the soothing sounds of water, (waterfall, rivers), and birds. Besides it's almost bed time so I can't watch it now. ;o)

I was in it for awhile and found the body sounds to be most annoying. I didn't hear nails on a chalkboard though.

Interesting.

i may not have been the best person to listen because even though I have good hearing, I seem to have an ability to tune the sound out and continue with what I am doing.

Must be from all those years working with noisy ED printers. :)

I even let tea kettles blow because I like the sound in the background. My cat comes out meowing to tell me the Kettle is whistling. :)

That was interesting..thanks for sharing. :)

I'll file this away under "things to do when I'm so happy I can't stand myself"

As for dumb & dumber clip? That's about how I feel when I'm taxi-cab-mom.

Thanks for a good laugh. Needed one this morning.
