The Shenanigans Section

I think my east-european ancestry is destroying me. Somehow I've managed to invert my sleep schedule so that I wake up in the early afternoon and go to bed at 6:00 in the morning.

Somebody needs to nerf morning people. They've grown too powerful in the current meta.

Rant: Sounds

I have not, once in my life, heard the sound of a tree falling. Have you? You've probably heard the old "if a tree falls in a forest and no one's around to hear it" saying, but it's likely that you've never actually heard a tree fall down. Movies and video games don't count, as I'm pretty sure they use the same handful of stock sound-effects. The same goes for explosions. I've never heard the sound of an explosion in real life, and there's too much variety in the used explosion sound effects for them all to be accurate. They're theoretically the same thing, right? Surely sound can't be distorted that heavily, can it? There are so many sounds we just take for granted: we hear these noises on television, in media, in movies, whatever, and we're like: "Yeah, that's precisely what a car blowing up sounds like."

But you don't know, do you? You could be standing on the side of the road and some car that's parked across the way could abruptly explode, and you'd be like "Holy shit! That's an explosion!" and then, for every explosion you'd hear in movies, you'd be nitpicking that shit, yeah? "That isn't right, I know what explosions sound like! That isn't an explosion!"

I'm not saying that audio technicians are lying to us, but there is no guarantee a car-sized explosion does not, in fact, sound like a giant rubber duck squeaking loud enough to blast out your eardrums. Logic dictates what an explosion actually sounds like, and this is all just a bunch of hyperbole on my part, but my point stands. Most of us don't know at all, do we?

Actually, in hindsight, I'm kind of glad I've never heard an explosion in real life. Tinnitus is a real thing, and I ain't having that shit.

In other news, loud enough sounds can actually kill you. A brief foray onto the internet revealed that sounds roughly around 200 dB could kill you by causing an air embolism in your lungs. Could you fucking imagine that? Imagine a massive, 70-foot tall duck quacking at you loud enough to blast out the alveoli in your lungs, shooting enough air into your arteries, and your bloodstream, to end your fucking life?

In other other news, life with ADD is a wild ride.

    Hey, sorry, but before we begin, I've got a rant to get off my chest. Here's something that is currently upsetting me:

    Where did the expression "Don't you dare" come from? It is, essentially, the statement "Do not you dare," which is grammatical vomit; and yet "Don't you dare!" has become an excessively common phrase in modern media on all levels. You've probably said it yourself at some point in your life.
