Men insult men and don’t really mean it, women compliment each other and don’t really mean it. Pretty funny observation from my co-worker.
Crosswalks and People
I am leaving the Wallmart over the weekend and this girl walks in front of me in a crosswalk. Granted people do have the right away in crosswalks. The only problem that I see is that she is on her cell phone and she doesn’t even look left or right to see if anyone is coming. She just walked right out in front of my vehicle. You are totally in the right being in a crosswalk, but you will still be dead if you get run over from not looking to see who is coming. I see people in parking lots going way too fast and I see where someone could get hurt. What do you think? Was she right or was she wrong?
I’m driving down the street when a car pulls up next to me. The guy in the car beside me is playing some kind of techno or rap music that is so loud I doubt he could hear a horn or a firetruck going down the street. I really wasn’t interested in hearing his music although it seems that he wants everyone to hear his music.
Some misconceptions about losing your hearing here:
Not true: Our threshold for pain is at about 120 – 140 dB SPL but sound begins to damage our hearing when it is above 85 dB SPL (for a 8 hour period).
Not true: Some of the hearing loss will be permanent. Indication of damage is ringing and noise in the ears (called tinnitus) after sound exposure. This is a clear indication that sound exposure took place. Another indication of that is the difficulty to communicate on the phone and in the noisy restaurant or cafeteria.
